The Nigeria Labour Congress has said that the recent attack on the Court in Port Harcourt constitutes a violation of the sanctity of the Judiciary and an invitation to anarchy.

NLC president Comrade Ayuba Wabba in a statement on Tuesday said that such attack on Portharcourt or any Court for that matter, represent the primitive instincts of the hoodlums and the desperation of their promoters.

He said, “In light of the fact that the court is the last hope of the common man, no explanation is good enough for this level of primitive violence.

“In our view, our democracy can only make meaning as well as stand the test of time with strong institutions.”Accordingly, we should eschew undermining them as that will only render them prostrate and amenable to manipulation.”

Wabba however said that Judges owe themselves and the system the duty of living above board.”Anything to the contrary, erodes the confidence of the citizenry in the courts and makes attractive the quest for alternative route to justice, which often times could be savage!”The Labour Congress urged the police to fish out and prosecute these culprits, no matter how highly placed.

For a better society
