About Us

Gavel is a not for profit/non-governmental organization with the aim of increasing the pace of justice delivery through access to justice, digital technology and citizens’ engagement. Since our inception three years ago, we have tracked court cases, promoted transparency and accountability in the justice sector and also provided free legal support for indigent persons while advocating for the rights of indigent Nigerians.

Our work in these areas has revealed a gaping hole in the fabrics of the nation especially in the areas of corruption and anti-corruption campaigns, abuse and brutalization of Nigerian citizens by the police, and the ever-growing numbers of indigents inmates in prisons awaiting trials.

We have so far continuously monitored and tracked anti-corruption cases in court and provided necessary data to the public on these cases. This is aimed at galvanizing the conversation around these cases and to advocate for their early resolution. We have represented numerous victims of human rights abuse in court and we have been able to get recompense for them.

Mission

Our core priorities are to achieve through technology, advocacy and strategic lobbying, a remarkable increase in the pace of Justice delivery in Nigeria and other West African Countries.

Objectives

Our objective is to use technology in accelerating justice delivery within the legal framework of Nigeria. We also aim to use technology to digitize the activities of the court for public use to achieve a transparent judicial system in Nigeria.
