Abel Ozioko, while briefing reporters after the judgement, said the judge was carrying out an experiment on his client.

“The judge confessed that an issue like this is novel; in other words, he was carrying out an experiment.

“For me, this is a good example of bad judgement, and we have our appeal in our hands, I still have confidence in the law court and we are heading upstairs to the three wise men to know whether he is right or wrong,” he maintained.
