Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen, has asked principal lawyers to reduce the number of junior lawyers accompanying them to courts.

Onnoghen who made the call in Abuja during the opening ceremony of conference of International Association of Women Judges in West African sub region, said limiting the number of junior lawyers would check overcrowding in courts.

The Chief Justice suggested that the number of the junior counsels that accompanied a principal counsel, especially in political cases, should not be more than five.

According to him, the issue has become a challenge because apart from overcrowding the courts, it takes judges much time writing down names of the accompanying lawyers.
