Union disrupts court sitting in Lafia
Nasarawa State Chapter of Judicial Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN), on Tuesday disrupted proceedings at the High Court 1, Lafia, where the Chief Judge, Justice Suleiman Dikko, was sitting.
Members of the union, who were protesting the non-constitution of the state’s Customary Court of Appeal, Lafia, also complained of poor welfare.
Mr Jimoh Musa, state JUSUN Chairman, who spoke, said they would stage protests from time to time until their demands are met.
He said that the National Judicial Council (NJC) has given the state the nod to appoint three judges into the Customary Court of Appeal, to enable the court form quorum.
Musa alleged that till now, nothing was done to reopen the court. He added that the union was demanding stoppage of all illegal deductions.
Musa added that the union was only struggling for better welfare for its members and not fighting with anybody.
All efforts to get the reaction from the chief judge failed.
