Some physically-challenged disrupted activities on Wednesday at The High Court of Lagos State, located in the capital city, Ikeja was agog as physically challenged people protesting against alleged refusal of the court to pay them a judgment sum of N8.9 million paid to the registry of the court by musicians P-Square.
One of them, 25-year-old Patrick Arueze mobilized the men and women to the High Court to block its main gate, preventing vehicles from entering the premises and causing gridlock along Oba Akinjobi Way, GRA.
Explaining what informed the protest, Arueze said he organised a show in Benin City, the Edo State capital, featuring P-Square, but the musicians’ failure to show up incensed fans leading to violence and vandalisation.
Consequently, he dragged the musicians to court and the ruling in 2016 was in his favour with the P-Square ordered to pay him N8.9m, which they did through the court but till today he was yet to be given the money.
Arueze said the protest was to press home their demand for the Chief Justice of Lagos State, Justice Kazeem Alogba, to give them the judgment sum deposited with the Lagos State Judiciary.
