Danladi Umar reacted angrily to the lawyers request and threatened to charge him for contempt before sending him out of the court room.
Interestingly, the video of Umar flaring up angrily has circulated through different online mediums and the majority of the Nigerian community on Twitter has condemned his attitude as a presiding judge losing his temper easily when it is obvious that his job entails that he'd be met with stiffer provocations as provided for both the defense and prosecution team.
A twitter user, @Adekunle025, described Umar's attitude as unprofessional of presiding judge and chairman of a Tribunal for that matter.
Another twitter handle, @ said: Danladi Umar yelled at a fellow lawyer and shouted "Shut Up". This clearly shows that he's biased and doesn't want to entertain arguments.
