Hon. Ibrahim Murtala Mohammed has cited the lead Counsel for the petitioners in the election case before the Supreme Court for contempt of court.

He explained that Madam Gloria Akufo, a leading member of the petitioners’ legal team, made certain utterances amounting to contempt when given a platform in the media to air her views on the court proceedings.

Addressing the court case during a panel discussion programme “Alhaji Alhaji” on Radio Gold, Hon. Murtala Mohammed raised concern over lawyers who make utterances which are contemptuous to the court.

He therefore found as inappropriate some comments made by the petitioners’ Counsel and therefore condemned her.

“You have a lawyer who makes a public statement and I thought it was contemptuous…From the petitioners, public statement on radio and on TV [Gloria Akufo] that we are winning the case; that was contemptuous. You don’t make such statements.” he said.
