The Chief Judge of Osun State, Justice Adepele-Ojo and his management staff were on Monday greeted with protest by the Judiciary workers over what they described as high handedness and mismanagement of the judicial arm of government.
The protest saw the workers blocked the main entrance of the State High court in the early hours of Monday, thereby, stopping other workers and vehicles from accessing the premises.
The protesters led by Mr. Gbenga Eludire, armed with placards with inscriptions such as ‘Judiciary staff deserves better,’ ‘We are tired of oppression and stagnation,’ and ‘Unlawful suspension of Judiciary staff without recourse to Judicial Service Commission is barbaric,’ among others, accused Adepele-Ojo of refusal to pay wardrobe allowances of workers and other emoluments in the last three years.
CAPITAL POST recalled that Justice Adepele-Ojo was asked to step aside by the Osun State House of Assembly to enable investigation into his activities.
The move by the lawmakers was as a result of allegation of corruption, gross-misconduct and abuse of office.
