Osun Judiciary workers protest against CJ, gate under lock and key
By Richard Akintade, Osogbo
Members of the Judiciary Staff Union in Osun State on Monday locked the entrance to the Osun State High Court in Osogbo in protest against the Chief Judge, Adepele Ojo, and the management of the activities of the judiciary in the state.
Our Correspondent gathered that, the protesting workers led by Mr Gbenga Eludire, prevented movement into the premises.
Armed with placards with inscriptions such as “Judiciary staff deserves better,’ ‘We are tired of oppression and stagnation,’ and ‘Unlawful suspension of Judiciary staff without recourse to Judicial Service Commission is barbaric,’ among others, accused Ojo of refusal to pay wardrobe allowances of workers in the last three years.
It would be recalled that Justice Adepele-Ojo was last week Thursday, asked to step aside by the state House of Assembly pending investigations on allegations of corruption, gross misconduct and abuse of office.
