Daughter of Charles Okah, who is facing charges over the October 1, 2010 Independence Day bombing in Abuja, has written the trial judge seeking release of her father.
Tarila Okah who lives in Canada, has pleaded with Justice Gabriel Kolawole of an Abuja Federal High Court to speedily dispense with her father’s case to enable him attend to his deteriorating health as well as her forthcoming wedding.
In the letter, which was read in court yesterday, Tarila criticized the delay in the prosecution of the case and the denial of bail to her father to enable him seek medical care for pile and other ailments.
After reading the letter, Okah’s counsel Samuel Zibiri (SAN) apologized to the court for the way the judge was addressed and the issues raised in the letter.
Prosecution counsel, Alex Izinyon (SAN) denied delaying the case, saying delays arose from the applications brought by the defendants.
He informed that the federal government has paid medical bills for the treatment of Okah at the National Hospital in Abuja.
The case has been adjourned to Feb 22 for hearing.
