Justice court relaunches for dispute resolution


AS the reality TV show, Justice Court, is re-launched in Lagos, the producer has pledged to continue discharging justice speedily as a way of relieving the burdens of the conventional courts that are saddled with myriad of legal cases.

Speaking at the re-launch of the show recently, the executive producer, Victor Aluko, said Justice Court has been airing on national television channels for two years, but it’s important to re-launch the programme so that Nigerians can have a real understanding of what it is all about.

“The Justice Court is an Alternative Dispute Resolution court whose intention is to settle civil cases and other cases, thereby reducing the workload of the conventional courts. Since the reality show started some years back, the acceptance level from people around the globe has been massive,” he stated.

On her part, the presiding judge on the show, Justice Funmi Asaolu, affirmed that appearing on Justice Court is free of charge, as nobody pays a dime before his or her case is heard.

A production of Avonix Media and shot at Hotsports Studio in Lagos, Justice Court is currently running on multiple terrestrial and cable channels including DStv, GOtv, NTA2, TVC, PlusTV, and StarTime.
