Nigeria’s Supreme Court has been shut down.

The action followed industrial action embarked upon this Tuesday morning by Judiciary workers, which workers said was in line with their threat to embark on an indefinite nationwide strike to press for financial autonomy for the judicial arm of government.

The strike commenced, in spite of the appeal by the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) to the workers to shelve the industrial action, which it said was ill-timed considering the COVID-19 constraints the Nigerian courts had been battling with in the last year.

To that effect, the main gate of the Supreme Court is currently locked, leaving workers who have arrived to resume duty, stranded.
