The Chairman of Okene Local Government, Engr. Abdulrazaq Muhammad while reacting to the court judgment, lauded the judiciary for upholding the laws of the land and sanitizing the society against evils and criminalities by men who in some cases operate under the cover of religious and humanitarian activities.
