Photo - Failed Judge Murder: Driver’s Father Prostrate In CourtIt was rather dramatic when the father of Quadri Kasali, a commercial bus driver, harged with attempted murder of Justice Ebenezer Adebajo interrupted proceedings, lying flat on the floor and pled with presiding Judge, Justice Christopher Balogun, at the Lagos High Court Igborsere on Tuesday.

Wailing heavily, the father begged the Judge to have mercy on his son, who has been standing trial for trying to run down Justice Adebajo on Moloney Street, Lagos Island, during a traffic brawl in 2012.

The judge directed an orderly to lead the father out of the court.

At the resumed hearing, defense counsel, Mr Oludare Falana, asked the court for an adjournment saying he just filed an application to quash the charge against the defendant.

The prosecution counsel, Mr Femi Adamson, however told the court that he already had his witnesses in court and would like to continue.

During cross examination, the first prosecution witness, Mr Adedayo Akinseye, personal assistant to Justice Adebajo, said he was in the car with the judge when the commercial bus driven by Qadri blocked traffic at Moloney Street, and the driver dared the cars behind him to fly.

Nevertheless when the defense counsel asked him if he saw what had transpired between the Judge and the commercial bus driver, he replied that he did not.

The second witness, a commercial motorcyclist Sherif Amao claimed he saw how the commercial bus hit the Judge and run away.

Justice Balogun adjourned to June 26 for the continuation of hearing.
