Chief Justice of Nigeria locked out as judicial workers embark on indefinite strike

by James Sambo


On Monday, Januray 5, the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Mahmud Mohammed and other Justices of the Supreme Court were locked out of their offices by members of the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria, (JUSUN).

The lock-out was as a result of the indefinite nationwide strike embarked on by the union.

Also, Justices of the Appeal Court and Judges of both High and Lower Courts within the  Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, were prevented from conducting any form of legal activity.

All the courts, including the Supreme Court, was barricaded by the striking judiciary workers who used heavy chains and padlocks ‎to block entrance and exit gates.

Meanwhile, the National President of JUSUN, Adamu Marwa, has declared that the strike will not be called off until the Federal Government complied and implemented the Federal High Court judgement that declared financial  autonomy for the judiciary.

Justice Ademola Adeniyi ‎had on January 13, 2014, ruled that funds meant for the judiciary should be released directly to the heads of courts and not to the Executive arm of government.
