Some yet to be identified hoodlums have burnt down a section of the Osun state high court located in the Ayeso area of Ilesha town. The incident occurred at the early hours of Monday.
It was gathered that the security men on duty were tied up and macheted by the perpetrators while trying to gain access into the court premises.
Eyewitness account indicates that they also destroyed court documents before leaving the premises.
Effort to speak with the state chief Judge, justice Oyebola Adepele-Ojo who visited the scene to assess the level of damage done, was unsuccessful, as she declined interview.
Speaking with newsmen, the chairman of the Nigerian Bar association ilesha branch, Ebenezer Ogunfunminiyi, condemned the attack on the court of law, describing it as unfortunate.
He added that efforts are in top gear to reaching the governor of the state, Rauf Aregbesola towards ensuring adequate security of lives of workers in the court.
