"An interim order is hereby made against the respondents to suspend their strike pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice,’’ it said.

Reacting to the order, the Chairman of JUSUN in the state, Chinedu Mbah, said the union was not aware of any court order.

"I am not aware of any order. I am currently in Abuja and nobody told me of the order.

"I do not think that our lawyer was there when the order was given by the court," he said.

Judiciary workers in the state embarked on the strike to protest the failure of the state to comply with the judgement of the Federal High Court on financial autonomy for the judiciary.
