ISEYIN – Litigants and lawyers were on Monday stranded at the premises of some courts located at Oja Area of Iseyin Local Government Council of Oyo State.

The Judicial Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN) had on July 11 embarked on an industrial action to press home their demands.

The demands, according to the union, include financial autonomy for the judiciary in states as well as improved welfare for judicial workers.

Some litigants and lawyers sighted at the premises of the Chief Magistrates’ Court and Customary Courts at Iseyin on Monday told NAN in separate interviews that they were told that the strike had been suspended.

“I just need to file an application that has to do with life and death and here I am, still waiting for the strike to be suspended, “said a lawyer, who craved anonymity.

Amope Olorunosebi, a 45-year-old woman seeking dissolution of her marriage, said the court had heard her case and she was to get judgment on July 14, adding that the strike prevented it.

“I was even told to come here today that they have suspended the strike only for me and my friends to get here and discover that they are not working.

“I just hope this strike matter is resolved as early as possible in the interest of the masses, “she said. (NAN)[eap_ad_3]
