OGUN STATE JUDICIARY
The Ogun State Judiciary is the third arm of Government; it came into existence at the creation of Ogun State in 1976. It operates through three hierarchies of Courts which are the High Court, Magistrate Court and Customary Court. These Courts have Rules guiding their operation. The Courts have been operating within the full complement of their Rules and have contributed immensely to the development of legal jurisprudence in Nigeria and in particular Ogun State. Ogun State Judiciary is presently headed by the first female Chief Judge in Ogun State, Hon. Justice Olatokunbo Olopade, CON, KJW.
