Udom’s Witness Feigns Blindness, Wets His Clothes As Petitioner’s Counsel, Prof. Ojukwu Offers Assistance
A mild drama ensued at the Akwa Ibom State Governorship election tribunal in Uyo on Friday August 2,2019 when the 1st respondent’s witness from Ukanafun LGA, Mr. Ime Umanah suddenly developed blindness and couldn’t read out exhibits given to him by the Petitioner’s counsel, Prof. Ernest Ojukwu, SAN.
Prof. Ojukwu SAN, out of compassion offered his pair of glasses to enable the witness read out exhibits to the hearing of the Court.
Mr Umanah showed a great deal of discomfort as a result of massive revelations of electoral malpractices in his ward in Ukanafun local government area as no accreditation or signs of same took place on March 9, 2019 during the governorship election in the state.

Umanah emerged from the witness box with his trousers wet. It could not be immediately ascertained if the wetness was sweat or urine.
Commenting on the development, an eye witness who preferred not to be named, said “Ime Umanah came all the way from Ukanafun to lie and defend the indefensible, the outcome is the disgrace now”.
