The Lagos State Government has announced that the relocation of Igbosere High Court to a property at Osborne Foreshore Estate, Ikoyi will be completed by end of May 2021.
Lagos State Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, Moyosore Onigbanjo, SAN, made the disclosure at the Ministry of Justice 2021 ministerial press briefing in Alausa, Ikeja.
The Igbosere High Court, the country’s oldest and one of its most recognisable judicial buildings, was attacked on October 22 by hoodlums in the violence that trailed the #EndSARS protests.
The criminals spent hours looting and vandalising vehicles, furniture, refrigerators, air conditioners, office equipment among others, before burning the entire court complex to the ground.
He also said the digitalisation of 10 of the state’s courts is ongoing and said that six of the fully digitalised courts will be ready by October.
He noted that the court digitalisation will complement the launch of an online platform for checking the status of legal advice and certified true copy of legal advice.
