Lagos Demolishes Nigeria’s Oldest Court In Igbosere


The Lagos State Government has begun the demolition of the State High Court in the Igbosere area of the state, months after it was set ablaze by hoodlums.

Hoodlums had attacked the historical edifice and set it ablaze on the sidelines of the October 2020 EndSARS protests in Lagos and other parts of the country.

The High Court sitting in Igbosere once housed the Supreme Court of Nigeria before it was relocated to Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory.

Some of the notable people who have sat in the court include the first Chief Judge of Lagos State, John Idowu Conrad Taylor, popularly known as JIC Taylor, who was also the longest-serving Chief Judge of Lagos, Justice Adetunji Adefarasin, Justice Muri Okunola, Justice George Oguntade, Justice Bode Rhodes-Vivor, amongst others.
