Members of the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN), Ogun State chapter, have begun a five-day warning strike over non-payment of their 40 per cent peculiar allowance.

The workers on Monday shut down the state high court and magistrates’ courts in Isabo, Abeokuta, following the commencement of the industrial action.

The development left litigants and lawyers stranded as judges were prevented from carrying out their duties.

Speaking with newsmen, the state’s Chairman of JUSUN, Olarenwaju Ajiboye, said the workers were forced to embark on the strike following the refusal of the state government to address their demands following the expiration of a 21-day ultimatum issued to the state government.
