Awka high court collapse imminent as erosion encroaches


The Federal High Court, Awka in Anambra is still critically exposed to collapse as gully erosion eats up part of the premises just as judicial activities resume on Sept.17.

The perimeter fencing on one part of the premises, the generator house and borehole facility have collapsed into the gully erosion.

The ravaging erosion had already cut off access to the Judges quarters, its Boys Quarter and the adjoining buildings including the abandoned Anambra Government House project.

Some members of judicial staff who pleaded anonymity feared that the court would not be conducive for judicial activities when the courts resumes on Monday.

They said the surge in human population will make the effect of the disaster to be increasingly felt as the structure would come under more pressure.

According to the staff, the entrance into the court premises may collapse as erosion had crept up to the gate.

They wondered why no respite had come their way in spite of their outcry and media reports. Daily Trust
