Osun Judiciary Workers Begin Indefinite Strike

The judiciary workers in Osun State have declared an indefinite strike to express their grievances on alleged injustice and persecution they are facing under the leadership of the State Chief Judge, Justice Adepele Ojo.

Since Monday, the workers have picketed the State High Court Court in Osogbo, the state capital, demanding for the reinstatement of their suspended members, as well as the payment of some of the allowances they are entitled to.

Yesterday, the third day of the protest, a detachment of policemen drafted to the scene to maintain law and order dispersed the gathering with teargas canisters.
