Ogun state government owes judges, magistrates and state counsels in the state of 18 month allowances.
The unpaid allowances, include robe allowances and journal allowances.
Chairman of the Sagamu chapter of the Nigerian Bar Association, Mr. Debo Odugunwa, made this known at the presentation of the state’s newly appointed high court judges to the bar, bench and public, in Abeokuta.
