One Chief Vincent Nnamdi-Otto who was sentenced to one month imprisonment at the Port Harcourt Correctional Centre for contemptuous action and threat to life has been granted pardon by the court.

Chief Nnamdi-Otto had while responding to questions during a cross examination from the witness box shouted at the presiding Judge, Justice Adolphus Enebeli and walked out of the witness box while threatening to deal with everyone involved in the matter.

 

The Presiding Judge, Justice Adolphus Enebeli however ordered that Chief Nnamdi-Otto be put back in the box and thereafter sentenced him to one month imprisonment before adjourning till 17th of May, 2021 for continuation of cross examination.

 

Our correspondent reports that Justice Enebeli however ordered that the convict be brought to court after spending fifteen days in prison following an apology letter by the Chief and a motion by his counsel, Jerry Amadi requesting for the bail of his client or that he should be made to pay a fine equivalent to the remaining days to be spent in prison.

 

Justice Enebeli in his ruling granted pardon to the convict without awarding any fine and but ordered that the chief must sign an undertaking which must be verified by the court.
