There was a pandemonium at the Zuba Magistrate Court in the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, when Mr. Obiajulu Uja, a member of the OBIdient movement in the 2023 elections, verbally assaulted the Court’s Registrar.

Naija247news gathered that the incident happened on Tuesday, when Uja stormed the court with personnel of the Kuje Correctional Centre.

It was however, learnt that the OBIdient supporter was not expected at the Magistrate Court yesterday, as today (Wednesday) was scheduled for the hearing on his case to continue.

Obiajulu Uja was almost on the verge of violently attacking the Court’s Registrar before he was whisked away by the prison personnel who had brought him, initially.

But when he was arraigned before the Abuja court on Wednesday, Magistrate Abdulazeez Ismail Muhammad, the trial judge, subpoenaed (summoned) the Controller General of the Nigerian Correctional Service, NCoS; together with the Head and Chief Medical Officer of the Kuje Correctional Centre to appear in the court on Friday (in the next 48 hours), for disobeying the court’s order on the Chief Medical Officer of Kuje Prison to “provide his opinion in writing as to the state of mind of Uja, who is said to be mentally-challenged”

Magistrate Ismail Muhammad, had in a ruling on April 20, 2023, after scrutinizing a medical report by one Dr. Olusegun Shoyombo, a Consultant Psychiatrist at the National Hospital Abuja, on the mental sanity of the OBIdient supporter, said: “… Accordingly, it is hereby ordered that the defendant be remanded at Kuje Correctional facility for one month for medical observation. The medical personnel shall accord the defendant the requisite and required medical treatment at the expense of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“The medical officer shall provide to the court his opinion in writing as to the state of mind of the defendant, during the period of his remand and before the expiration of that period”.

Uja, in early April, was carried off a Lagos-Abuja flight, after he started a lone protest, demanding that President Bola Tinubu (then President-Elect) must never be sworn in as president on May 29.

Naija247news had then, also reported that airport security officers evacuated him after disrupting an Ibom Air flight for close to an hour.
