The High Court of the Federal Capital Territory on Tuesday began virtual proceedings via the use of Zoom, a video teleconferencing application.
During the virtual court proceedings, the court had three sittings with Justices Salisu Garba, Hussein Baba-Yusuf and Peter Affen presiding in each of the sittings.
The regular sitting of the court had been hampered by the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic and the several regulations issued by the government.
As such, lawyers and other stakeholders in the justice sector have been suggesting new ways for the judiciary to perform optimally in the face of this novel coronavirus.
The deployment of technology was one of the suggestions.
The Chief Judge of the court, Justice Ishaq Bello, after the virtual court proceedings, said it was such innovations that would help to redress some of the lapses in smooth justice delivery.
