The Federal High Court (FHC), Abuja, was, on Thursday, shutdown amidst the ongoing #EndSARS protests across the country.
When the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) visited the court, the gate was under lock.
One of the private guard officers manning the gate told NAN that the office did not open for the day’s work.
Some of the visitors and litigants who came around were not allowed access into the building.
NAN reports that judges and staff were directed to close for the day’s activities on Wednesday.
The instruction, which might not be unconnected with the nationwide protests by young Nigerians against the police brutality, made everybody within the vicinity of the court to hurriedly packed their personal effects, and vacate the building.
It would also be recalled that hoodlums, on Wednesday, attacked some structures in Lagos during which some buildings were torched, among which was the state’s High Court.
