Looter burns down Lagos court, wears judge’s robe

Scores of hoodlums made their way into the Igbosere High Court, Lagos Island on Wednesday, carting away computers, printers, files, fans, air conditioners and other items.

A viral video also shows one of the thugs dressed in a judge’s robe and wig, wielding a machete.

After looting the ‘temple of justice’ the rioters set it on fire before fleeing.

A lawyer, Yinka Aileru, explained to The PUNCH that the loss of documents may not directly affect cases because the Lagos State judiciary had introduced e-filing.
