Lagos CJ inspects Lekki courthouse
The Chief Judge of Lagos State, Justice Kazeem Alogba, has visited the courthouse being built by the state at Addo Road, Lekki, Eti-Osa Local Government Area.
The visit, according to a statement on Wednesday, was in fulfillment of the CJ’s promise to the Lekki Forum of the Nigerian Bar Association, comprising of lawyers living and practising within Ikoyi-Victoria Island-Lekki-Ajah-Ibeju Lekki areas of Lagos State.
The forum, in the statement by its chairman and secretary, Oladotun Hassan and Ayodele Ademiluyi, respectively, commended the Chief Judge “for braving the tumultuous traffic on the Eti-Osa/Lekki-Epe Expressway to see things for himself at the site of the high/magistrates’ court building.”
The lawyers, however, appealed to the Lagos State Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Mr Moyosore Onigbanjo (SAN), to “put processes in motion for the acquisition of the adjoining landed properties to the high/magistrate court building in public interest for the purposes of constructing a spacious car park for litigants and lawyers, when the high/magistrates court building comes into operation.”
