An Abuja Magistrate, His Worship, Ibrahim Mohammed, of Magistrate court 2, Wuse zone 6, Abuja, has ordered policemen at the Court to arrest, handcuff a Lawyer, Eburu Ekwe Barth, for disagreeing with him on the summary of the case before the Magistrate.

The Magistrate thereafter sentenced Mr Eburu Ekwe to 2months imprisonment for contempt in the face of the court.

The lawyer was put on handcuff  and led out of the courtroom.

A lawyer present during the dramatic Court proceeding told BarristerNG that the lawyer's crime was that he interjected when the Magistrate was delivering a ruling on an application by the the opposing Lawyer.

The lawyer's ground of interjection was that the Magistrate was ascribing what he never said to him in his ruling. The lawyer further queried whether there was a conspiracy between the magistrate and the Plaintiff lawyer.

His interjection angered Magistrate Ibrahim Mohammed as he immediately ordered his arrest and sentenced him for contempt.

Plea for mercy from many lawyers present during the proceeding to the Magistrate was not granted.

The lawyer has been taken to Suleja Prison
