Ondo State Chief Judge, Justice Olutoyin Akeredolu has narrated how she escaped from an attack by hoodlums, when her official vehicle broke down along Abuja-Lokoja-Kabba Road
Justice Akeredolu said she had to abandon her official car and travel in her pilot vehicle.
She spoke while receiving twenty official vehicles presented to judges by the state government.
Justice Akeredolu said, “my colleagues and I have been riding ten year-old vehicles. We have had various experiences of disappointment in the use of our vehicles.
“I recall once when I was on my way to Abuja, my vehicle broke down around Obajana. You know the security situation around that axis.
“Before long, the boys were gathering. Fortunately for me, I had a pilot vehicle with me. I had to enter the pilot vehicle to get away from that environment”.
Justice Akeredolu described the existing harmonious relationship between the state executive and judiciary as uncommon, which she added would be beneficial to residents.
Earlier, the State Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Donald Ojogo said the step was taken to enhance activities in the judiciary.
Ojogo, who stood in for Governor Rotimi Akeredolu, explained that no effort would be too much to invest, as far as the welfare of the judicial institution is concerned.
