Azuka, Okah, the wife of the leader of the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta, Mr. Henry Okah, on Thursday landed in the soup when her mobile phone rang at the Johannesburg Magistrates’ Court.

She found herself on the wrong side of the law during her husband’s bail application in the Johannesburg Magistrates’ Court on Thursday, the South African Press Association reports. When Azuka’s cellphone rang, the Magistrate, Mr. Hein Louw, ordered the court inspector to send her to the court’s holding cell.

However, Azuka pointed the inspector to her driver, who was seated in front of her, and he was sent to the court jail instead. When her driver was called to stand before the court, she claimed responsibility for the interruption.

The magistrate said, “She wilfully disturbed the court. My court is like Park Station. I have never seen my court this busy.

“Reporters are going in and out of my court, and I have warned people to switch off their phones.” Park Station is Johannesburg’s main railway station.

He said he understood that Azuka was under a lot of pressure, but could not accept the court being disrupted.

But Okah’s defence lawyer, Rudi Krause, pleaded with Louw for leniency in dealing with the matter. Krause explained that Azuka always had her phone off and that it was his fault that she switched it on.

“I was trying to get hold of her on her cellphone and I tried a number of times and could not talk to her,” Krause said.

Eventually, Azuka phoned Krause back and he asked her not to switch off her cellphone again. The charges she faces were not clear, but her case was postponed to Friday (today), SAPA reports
