This information is contained in a statement signed by Okey Wali, NBA President and senior advocate of Nigeria (SAN) in Abuja on Tuesday.
NBA made the call in a statement issued on Tuesday and made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).
“The NBA is shocked at the news of the explosion in the Ahoada High Court and the alleged case of arson in the courtroom of the Okehi High Court, both in Rivers State,’’ it stated.
It said that it would not accept such usual comments as “the police investigation is continuing’’.
The statement also stated that it would not standby and watched such act of violence and impunity which were inimical to the rule of law and a threat to democracy.
The association said the act underscored the need for government to take the security of lives and property more seriously.
“The lackadaisical attitude accorded to the security of courts nationwide calls for concern,’’ the statement stated.
The NBA stressed the need to secure the premises of courts of justice across the country.
“We demand an immediate and thorough investigation and expect a report, even if, interim, within 30 days of the date of the incidents.
“Attacks on our courts will not be swept under the carpet,’’ the statement added.
