A monarch in Rivers State, Chief Vincent Nnamdi-Otto has been sentenced to one month in prison by A Rivers State High Court, Port Harcourt for shouting on the president judge in a land dispute case where he was a respondent. He also threatened to deal with the judge and his rival.

The monarch, had, while responding to cross examination from the witness box on the disputed land suit, raised his voice at the presiding judge, requesting to know his interest in the matter. He also said he was not aware of an interim order restraining him from interfering with the land in dispute at Elelenwo, near Port Harcourt.

He went further to tell the judge the he knew his rival, whom he described as a crook, and that the court was condoning him.
