Re-Open Courts, Allow Judges Hear Cases Via Zoom And Skype – Falana To CJN

By Jude Obuseh

Human rights lawyer cum activist, Femi Falana (SAN), has implored the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Hon. Justice I.T. Muhammad to suspend his decision to put a hold on court sittings till further notice due to the COVID-19 pandemic, suggesting that judges could actually hear applications by using communications tools such as Skype or Zoom. In his view, re-opening the courts would enable thousands of Nigerians with pending legal matters – awaiting trial or under investigation – have access to justice. His request was contained in a letter titled, “Request To Re-Open Courts To Attend To Bail Applications And Fundamental Rights Applications”.
