The Legal Aid Council of Nigeria on Thursday said it treated 31 cases in Kano State in August.
The state Coordinator of the council, Alhaji Abubakar Umar, said this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Kano.
Umar said the 30 cases were civil matters, while the remaining one was criminal.
According to him, some of the cases are still pending in court.
Umar explained that some of the civil cases were resolved out-of-court, and that the council offered free legal services and advice to those who could not afford to pay for such services.
He said most of the civil cases were on non-payment of pension and retirement benefits, mostly by privately-owned companies and pension fund administrators.
Umar said others were on land disputes, marriage and debt recovery.
“However, some of the criminal cases were on armed robbery, criminal breach of trust, homicide, rape and theft,” he said.
