A customary court in Enugu state, Nigeria has reportedly been locked up by the landlord over unpaid rent.

According to media reports, the Customary Cour, which houses a Nigerian Law School, was locked up on September 12 due to inability to renew the rent.

The incident prevented the judges from sitting and forced lawyers to seek answers after unable to have their cases attended to as well.

After some enquiries, lawyers were told that the courtroom’s rent is due but it has not been renewed so the owner locked up pending renewal.
