Court users in Lagos still have their processes, case files and other documents, stored electronically in the cloud by the Lagos State Judiciary.
This is according to the Chief Judge of Lagos State, Justice Kazeem Alogba, while speaking during a special prayer session to begin the state’s 2022/2023 Legal Year, at the Lagos Central Mosque, on Monday.
The Chief Judge gave the assurance that documents dated as far back as 2013 are in the cloud, stating that it was not all documents, archives and court processes that were burnt during the EndSARS violence.
He said, “Due to the use of ICT, we were able to revive so many case files because most processes and case files were stored in the cloud.
“This began in 2013 when we started the ICT Transformation Plan which is still ongoing.”
Alogba said that the judiciary was still restoring processes and case files from the cloud.
He said: “Anything you file in Lagos State Judiciary now is electronically stored in cloud and not just in one domain so that if even any incident occurs, we can have a backup and our processes saved.”
