Lawyers and judiciary workers in Imo suspended court sitting on Tuesday to protest against the kidnap of a lawyer Barr. Chima Awurum.

Awurum was kidnapped by gunmen last Friday Mbano/Etiti, Imo.

Secretary of the Imo branch of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Chinedu Agu, said in a memorandum on Tuesday that there must be strict compliance with the directive to down tools.

Agu said that the request to suspend court sitting was approved by the Acting Chief Judge on the state, Ijeoma Oguguo and signed by the Chief Registrar, C.N Okereke

The memorandum read: the Office of the Chief Registrar, High Court of Imo State has declared that in solidarity with the Mbano/Etiti Branch of the NBA the High Courts and Magistrates Courts will not sit on Tuesday.’’

Meanwhile, some litigants were seen at court premises looking frustrated over the sudden development.

A litigant, Mr Kingsley Anyawu, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that his case had lingered due to long adjournments and courts boycott.

Anyawu condemned the kidnap of the lawyer and appealed to security agencies to find lasting solution to insecurity in the state.
