The aim of the strike was to press for the introduction of financial autonomy in the judiciary in all 36 states and the FCT.
Mr Uyi Ogieriakhi, Chairman of JUSUN in Edo State, clarified that when the Edo branch entered the same strike in 2015, participants were not compensated by the state government.
However, in a statement issued on Wednesday, the Chief Registrar, Mr Benson Osawaru, confirmed that Monday court sessions have been canceled in solidarity with JUSUN.
“This is to inform the general public that we are in unity with the strike by the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN).
“The Edo Branch of the Nigeria Bar Association (NBA) has urged its members to boycott court on Mondays before further notice.
“As a result, the sitting of court in Edo State Judiciary on Mondays is hereby suspended for the time being,” he added.
