There was a mild drama at the Federal High Court in Abuja as the alleged mastermind of the October 1, 2010 Independence Day bombing, Charles Okah attempted to commit suicide in court.

According to Channels Television, Okah, who is standing trial for terrorism, sought permission of the trial judge, Justice Gabriel Kolawole, to air his views over what he termed “endless trial”, owing to the absence of his lawyer in court.

Justice Kolawole obliged his request, and Okah said that he had been incarcerated for about five years now and he had a family to cater for.

He further said that his children would grow up without feeling the warmth of their father.

Charles Okah, who expressed frustration about the endless trial, ended his emotional statement after about five minutes, reached for a chair in the court and quickly moved towards a window.

He was, however, overpowered by lawyers and other litigants who prevented him from breaking the louvers.

Justice Kolawole consequently adjourned the suit till October 20, 2015 for continuation of trial.
