There was a mild drama at the Federal High Court, Abuja, on Friday as presiding judge, Justice Abang Okon, told the embattled former Chairman of the Pension Reform Task Team, Abdulrasheed Maina, to stop looking at him.
9News Nigeria gathered that the Judge stated this when he was about to rule on the application for bail filed by Maina’s lawyer , Ahmed Raji.
Okon said, “Please I don’t want the 1st defendant to look at me when I am delivering my ruling so that I can concentrate.”
The court registrar in an attempt to amplify the directive of the judge, further compounded the matter as he asked Maina to look at the prosecution, who brought him to court.
The judge later continued with his ruling as he ordered the defendant to be remanded in prison custody.
