Justice Nyako Flouts COVID-19 Protocol, Appears In Court Despite Testing Positive

Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court, Abuja has allegedly tested positive to COVID-19.

Sources at the Federal Court who pleaded not to be mentioned told our reporter that despite knowing her COVID-19 status, Justice Nyako flagrantly went ahead to attend the valedictory session held in honour of Late Justice Ibrahim Watila of the Court who was buried last week.

It would be recalled that the Court on Thursday, January 28, 2021, bade farewell to late Justice Watila of the Abeokuta Division of the Federal High Court, who passed away after a brief illness.

According to another sources, Justice Nyako was sighted at the function, which held at the Ukeje Hall of the Federal High Court headquarters in Abuja, hugging and chatting with both her colleagues on the Bench and some senior staffers of the judiciary.

“I wonder why she would mingle and pass the deadly virus to her colleagues and other dignitaries at the burial ceremonies of her colleague, when she could have simply stayed away in self-isolation in compliance with the Federal Government’s safety measures to contain the rampaging pandemic,” the source said.

Another source said, “I don’t know why an educated person of her status would be that wicked to grace a public gathering knowing the implications of such an action”.

In the meantime, Justice Nyako’s court has been deserted for some days now according to our reporter.

A visit to the court on Wednesday morning shows that the court was empty except for some staff who were seen outside whispering about the incidence.

Efforts to get the court’s Chief Information Officer, Catherine Nwandu, were unsuccessful as her phone number was unreachable at the time of filing this report.
