On Wednesday, police personnel intervened to disband members of the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria, Osun State branch, who were protesting. This development occurred as Chief Judge Adepele Ojo returned to her office.
Since Monday, the protesters had disrupted operations at the State High Court, expressing grievances against Ojo for alleged abuse of office and high-handedness.
However, on Wednesday, as Ojo entered the premises, the protesters, who had left the gate open, moved towards her parked vehicle. In response, police officers on the scene used tear gas to scatter the protesters, prompting them to disperse in various directions.
Following the incident, the Chairman of Osun JUSUN, Gbenga Eludire, addressed the media, stating, “In light of the police action and the Chief Judge’s behavior, I, Comrade Gbenga Eludire, hereby instruct workers in the sector to withdraw their services until further notice.”
