Falana Advises The Chief Justice of Nigeria To Address Urgent Cases Via Skype.

Senior Advocate of Nigeria, and human rights activist, Femi Falana, has advised the chief justice of Nigeria (CJN), Ibrahim Tanko Muhammad to direct Judges to listen to “urgent cases” via Skype, following the lockdown order issued by state governments and the federal government after the outbreak of Covid-19 in Nigeria.

Femi Falana said the National Judicial Council (NJC) ought to review the suspension of court sittings to enable them attend to urgent matters, since the federal government has relaxed the lockdown by allowing markets, shops and stalls selling food and groceries to open to customers between the hours of 10:00 am and 2:00 pm daily.
