The presiding judge of the Kwara State Upper Area Court, Mr Sunday Adeniyi, which is hearing the case of Abdulazeez Adegbola aka Tani Olorun has warned parties in the case to desist from searching for his photographs over alleged evil purposes.
Adeniyi who is the judge trying the criminal defamation case involving Abdulazeez Adegbola aka Tani Olorun and Chief Ademola Olawoore, Oluwo Nla, gave the warning in Ilorin on Wednesday while hearing the bail applications of the two defendants in the case.
Tani Olorun and Oluwo Nla were facing five count charges of alleged criminal conspiracy, inciting public disturbance, disturbance of public peace, criminal defamation of character and intentional insult before the court.
The judge who spoke in the Yoruba language before going on a brief adjournment said, “I want to warn the parties in the case and their followers to stop searching for my photographs. I’m not the one that brought you to court. I’m only the judge and I will do my duty as required by the law. I have sworn to an oath that I will perform my duties as provided by the constitution. If you want to be fetish and practice your black power, you should direct it to yourselves or to your counsel but not to me.

“Leave me alone to do my job. I will be fair to all the parties. If I do it and you feel that it is short of expectations, leave God to do the final judgement,” Adeniyi said.
When the court later resumed to deliver the ruling on the bail application, Adeniyi displayed a spectacle camera which he said was seized from one of the people in the court, adding that, “This is the spectacle camera that was being used to take our photographs.”
In his ruling on bail for application, the judge granted bail to Chief Ademola Olawoore, Oluwo Nla of Tede who is the second defendant in the case in the sum of N500,000 and two sureties in the like sum.
