JUSUN shuts down Lagos court as indefinite nationwide strike begins

Members of Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN) who are enforcing an indefinite nationwide strike, have shutdown the Federal High Court in Ikoyi, Lagos.

It was gathered that the workers arrived at the court premises before 9am and instructed their colleagues in courtrooms and offices to comply with the industrial action.

The JUSUN members sealed some of the offices and pasted notices indicating commencement of the court shutdown.

Recall that JUSUN national leadership had ordered that courts be closed from Tuesday until the government grants financial autonomy to the judiciary.
