A new reality TV show, ‘Justice Court’ set to bring to life a real courtroom situation is set to debut on satellite and television networks across the country from Saturday January 4, 2020. Produced by Avonix Nigeria Limited and shot at the ultra-modern Hotsports Studios in Lagos, The Justice Court promises to oil the wheel of justice in Nigeria.
The setting of the show gives a real-life picture of a court room complete with a sitting judge, a plaintiff, an accused, interpreter, bailiff and the audience, and yet it is a reality show. Welcome to The Justice Court and presiding in all her Lordship is Judge Funmi Asaolu.
According to the producer, Neil Oyenekan, unlike other reality shows, The Justice Court,is an Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) model aimed at delivering fair and speedy judgment in a courtroom setting. It is real both in concept and execution, dealing with real life judicial matters.
“The judiciary is one of the oldest institutions in the world and an economy, state or community cannot run without law and order. Beyond what happens at the federal high courts, there are lots of issues that need to be dealt with at the grassroots. So, when you have a show like this, which addresses people who are in the middle and lower classes, it educates them more – through a medium, which reaches every corner of the country and possibly the continent,” he said.
A sneak preview of The Justice Court reveals that it is highly educative and entertaining.
