Alleged mastermind of the October 1, 2010 bombing in Abuja, Charles Okah, is currently at the National Hospital in the Federal Capital Territory recuperating from haemorrhoids (piles) surgery.
Okah who is standing trial before a Federal High Court in Abuja was absent in court yesterday, as his lawyer explained to the judge that his client was on the 18thof February taken to the national hospital in Abuja for surgery.
Even though the other defendant was in court, the case was adjourned due to the absence of the 1st defendant (Okah). The case has now been adjourned till March 19th.
It will be recalled that only last week, his Daughter, Tarila granted an interview asking that her father be released to his family who are 'dying' to have him back in their arms because he is innocent of the crimes they are accusing him off.
