Feb 20, 2014 – Blackout At Ikeja Lagos High Court: Drama As Judges & Lawyers Used Torch Light In Court

All the courts in Ikeja High Court complex today conducted their proceedings in total darkness after persistent power outage.

For the past 7 days, there has been no light in the court who reportedly incurred huge bills before being rid of power supply.

On Thursday morning, all the court rooms couldn’t seat until around 11am when power generator was turned on.

The generator powered off about 30 minutes after the proceedings commenced, prompting some of the judge to stall their proceedings.

Some of the judges however opted to continue sitting using torch lights to conduct their sittings.

Our correspondent who was at Justice Adeniyi Onigbanjo’s court observed that the judge carried on with the day’s business with torch light.

Lawyers in the court also used lights from the phones since the courtroom was in pitch darkness.

The judge however rose about 10 minutes after unable to continue with the torch light.

Our correspondent also observed that Justice Kudirat Jose conducted part of her court proceedings in darkness for about five minutes before suspending proceeding.

The judge was scheduled today to hear the bail application filed by alleged fraudster, Fred Ajudua.

A senior official of the court who refused to be quoted said the court rooms have been cut off from the public power supply, because of huge bills sent to them.

The official also said that the two generating sets in the court have been faulty.

Heehehehe torch light in court room…. Laughter wan kill me die o…..Haba Naijaaaaaa where are we going….
