The striking Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria, JUSUN, on Tuesday shut down the Courts in Lagos.
The enforcers of the strike arrived the court premises in the morning and asked their colleagues in courtrooms and offices to move out of the premises.
They also went ahead to seal some of the offices pasting notices that the strike had commenced.
A similar thing happened at the Lagos State High Court. The main gate was shut to prevent people from going inside the premises.
The JUSUN is demanding from the Federal Government compliance with the Constitution, court judgments and other instruments, which provide for the financial autonomy of the judiciary.
