*Anambra CJ lauds NBA Anaocha

The Anaocha Branch of the Nigerian Bar Association, NBA, has renovated the Chief Magistrate Court, Neni, Anambra State which was burnt down by hoodlums

Recall that in the wake of the #ENDSARS protest that rocked Nigeria sometime in October 2020, miscreants who hijacked the peaceful protest wreaked havoc on public infrastructure including the Chief Magistrate Court, Neni which was burnt down.

In reaction, NBA Anaocha Branch obtained the leave of the Chief Judge of the State, Hon. Justice O. M. Anyachebelu, and renovated it.

“Upon learning of this sad development on 27th October 2020, members of NBA Anaocha Branch were amongst the first responders that attended to the scene of the unfortunate incident, shortly thereafter, NBA Anaocha Branch at the floor of her monthly general meeting under the leadership of Kaine Ananwune Esq. unanimously resolved that NBA Anaocha Branch shall repair, renovate and make good all the damages occasioned on Chief Magistrate Court, Neni as a result of the arson.

“NBA Anaocha Branch sought and obtained the leave of his lordship, the Chief Judge of Anambra State, Hon. Justice O.M Anyachebelu permitting NBA Anaocha Branch to carry on with the renovation works. Within a space of 4 weeks the entire magistrate court complex at Neni, Anambra State was given a new lease of life.” a source disclosed to TheNigeriaLawyer

The source said the Chief Judge alongside Chief Registrar of the state and other top functionaries within the Anambra Judiciary visited and inspected the renovated Neni Magistrates Court. The Chief Judge commended the Branch for its intervention

He said, “The good works of NBA Anaocha branch at Chief Magistrate Court, Neni prompted the Chief judge of Anambra State, alongside the Chief Registrar of Anambra State Judiciary, Hon. Chinyere Ossy-Okoye and other top functionaries within the Anambra State Judiciary to pay a working visit to the Chief Magistrate Court, Neni to inspect the renovation works as undertaken by NBA Anaocha Branch. While conducting the Chief Judge of Anambra State round the courthouse, the chairman of NBA Anaocha Branch, Kaine Ananwune Esq. hinted to the Chief Judge of Anambra State that the renovation works were in line with the motto and slogan of NBA which is ‘promoting the rule of law’; as there cannot be the efficient promotion of rule of law in the absence of a functional court.

“At the end of the inspection exercise, the Chief Judge of Anambra State expressed their gratitude to NBA Anaocha Branch for their kind intervention.”
