Members of the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN) and the Nigerian Bar Association on Monday held a solidarity rally in Abuja and Lagos in a bid to drive home their demand for financial autonomy to legislature and judiciary in the states.
The peaceful protest took the groups to the National Assembly and other public places in the nation’s capital.
In Lagos, the lawyers displayed placards with various inscriptions as they marched from Ikeja Bar Centre through Oba Akinjobi, into Obafemi Awolowo Way towards the Alausa secretariat.
JUSUN is also demanding the payment of peculiar allowances to its members.
The judicial workers embarked on an indefinite strike on April 6 over the matter.
The union members converged at the gate of the Court of Appeal in Abuja, chanted solidarity songs, and displayed placards.
The strike has paralysed activities in courts nationwide.
