Osun court workers, union declares strike

The Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria, Osun State branch, on Wednesday declared an indefinite strike which takes effect immediately.

Police operatives dispersed protesting members of the Union as the suspended Chief Judge, Adepele Ojo, resumed back to her office.

The protesters had since Monday paralysed activities in the State High Court in protest against alleged abuse of office and high-handedness by Ojo.

But on Wednesday, Ojo made her way into the premises and the protesters who had left the gate to the premises open, upon realising that the CJ had entered, moved towards where her vehicle was being parked.

Police operatives on the premises subsequently fired teargas to disperse the protesters and those at the scene ran in different directions.

Addressing journalists after the incident, the Chairman, Osun JUSUN, Gbenga Eludire, disclosed that since the Chief Judge, Justice Adepele Ojo, has declared war against the workers, they should withdraw their service from their respective stations

He said, “Following the action of the police and the attitude of the Chief Judge, I, Comrade Gbenga Eludire, hereby ordered that workers in the sector should withdraw their service till further notice.”
