Judge adjourns Naira Marley’s trial as lawyers quarrel over seats

Trial adjourn till December 11 and 12, 2019
Thursday’s proceedings in the trial of musician Naira Marley for alleged credit card fraud was abruptly cut short as a quarrel ensued among lawyers over space to sit in the small courtroom.
The argument was between Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) counsel Mr Rotimi Oyedepo on the one hand, Marley’s counsel Mr Olalekan Ojo SAN and two other senior lawyers on the other hand.
Justice Nicholas Oweibo declined to make any other regarding the dispute but appealed to the lawyers to bear with the government over inadequate space in the courtroom.
The trial judge, Justice Nicholas Oweibo, was forced to adjourn the case till December 11 and 12, 2019 in the heat of arguments among lawyers.
The Federal High Court in Lagos where the trial is taking place has serious challenges over space, as the courtrooms are generally small.
It is not unusual to find lawyers and litigants fight over seat or space to stand in the courtrooms.
