The acting chief Judge of Imo state, Ijeoma Oguguo, has ordered the immediate relocation of Etiti High Court over the spate of insecurity in the state.
Gunmen had a fortnight ago razed Etiti High Court and Magistrate court situated in the Ishinweke in the Ihitte/ Uboma Local Government Area of the state.
The gunmen also attacked the Ihitte/Uboma LGA headquarters and police divisional headquarters, among other public facilities they destroyed the same day.
The order for the immediate relocation of the vandalised high court to Owerri, the state capital, was contained in a memo issued on her behalf by the Chief Registrar of the state, C.N Okereke.
The memo which was sighted by our correspondent in Owerri on Wednesday read, “I am directed by the acting Chief Judge of Imo to inform you that the Etiti High Court has been temporarily moved to premises of Owerri High Court.
“This is as a result of the fire incident and safety of judicial workers and others.”
