Daily Law Tips (Tip 395) by Onyekachi Umah, Esq., LLM. ACIArb(UK)

WHEN AND HOW CAN A JUDGE/MAGISTRATE ARREST AN OFFENDER.

A Judge or Magistrate can arrest any person who commits an offence in his presence within the district or division that the Judge/Magistrate sits/covers. Such a Judge/Magistrate can arrest the offender himself or order another person to do the arrest. The Judge/Magistrate can also order the arrested person to be kept in custody but must also offer bail.

My authorities are sections 24, 494 and 495 of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act, 2015 and other similar laws across States in Nigeria.
