Man Opposing Tinubu’s Swearing In Arraigned, Remanded In Prison




Why We Evacuated A Passenger From Our Flight - Ibom Air

Anti-Tinubu passenger who boarded an Abuja-Lagos flight, Obiajulu Uja, has been arraigned before the Zuba Magistrates’ Court in Abuja and remanded in prison custody.

Naija News learnt that Uja was charged with public nuisance, resistance to a lawful arrest, threatening violence, and conduct likely to cause a breach of peace contrary to sections 396, 267,188,172, and 144 of the Penal Code Law.

Recall that some security agents, last week Friday evening, forcefully removed Uja from an Ibom Air flight over unruly behavior before the take-off.

The man reportedly shouted inside the airplane that on no account should the President-elect, Bola Tinubu be sworn in as Nigerian leader.

His strange behavior attracted the attention of other passengers and flight attendants who called in some security personnel and forcibly removed him from the plane.

His lawyer, Ejike Ugwu, in an interview with PUNCH said Uja was hurriedly charged to court after he was admitted to the Muhammadu Buhari Police Hospital, sadly, the hospital did not have a psychiatrist doctor, and psychologist to examine him.

Ugwu, however, said a doctor was invited from National Hospital, Abuja to examine his client but the efforts unfortunately were futile.

According to him, they were deceived as all medical test conducted on Uja was abandoned following the arraignment adding his client’s bail application will be coming up on Thursday.

The lawyer said, “He was arraigned at the Zuba Magistrates’ Court after they deceived us because yesterday he was taken to Muhammadu Buhari Police Hospital, Area 11 Abuja.

“While we were there, it was around 3pm they told us that they wanted to arraign him in Zuba Magistrates’ Court.

“We reminded the court that the same police invited the doctor to examine him, and the same police instead of waiting for the doctors to examine him hurriedly charged him to court.

“Even with the test we did, we spent almost N40,000 at the Police clinic, all the tests they conducted we abandoned all of them; they have not prescribed any medicine.

“The way the police are handling it is as if they have an interest in the matter because you took somebody to a police clinic, you are coming to court to tell the court you want the person to be remanded in prison because you want to continue the investigation.

“Until now we do not know the result of the test that was conducted in the hospital because they hurriedly took him away from the hospital”
