Not Funny: Man Poos In Court To Evade Trial


SAN FRANCISCO, October 11, (THEWILL) –¬†An 18-year old man identified as Abdullahi Mohammend Tuesday caused a stir at the Oredo Magistrate Court when he defecated on his body shortly before he was to be arraigned.

Abdullahi who was accused of stealing four cartons of powder milk belonging to one Favour Nwachukwu was brought to the court by some policemen led by Sergeant Aigbochie Iruonagbe.

After defecating on his body, he started walking around the court premises even while policemen that brought him looked for alternative clothes for him.
