Thugs, on Friday, invaded the Delta State High Court 4 sitting in Warri, Delta State and chased away the presiding Judge, Hon. Justice V. O. Agboje, a renowned lawyer, Chief Efe.L. Akpofure, SAN, and others.
The incident brought the court sitting to an abrupt end, MP3SMASH reports.
The presiding Judge narrowly escaped being lynched by the thugs.
The Court is close to the Warri Area Command of the Nigeria Police Force and the “A” Division of the Police.
The thugs stormed the Courtroom during hearing of a suit brought by one Mr. Bernard Emiko, younger brother to the immediate past Olu of Warri Kingdom.
Emiko had approached the Court through his lawyer seeking the nullification of the selection of the Omoba (Prince Tsola Emiko) alleging that it did not follow due process.
