The whole court turned to see Douglas as he was shouting and saying he wasn’t the one that took care of this lady. There was a little disorder in the court. As a policeman stopped Douglas from going out.
Douglas: Officer why are you blocking my way? Excuse me! I want to go out.
Officer: The case is still on sir and the lady just involved you in it so you just can’t leave yet. I’m sorry.
Douglas: But I have somewhere I have to be right this very minute. So please, if you don’t mind kindly step out of my way.
The lady still at the interrogation box has sensed that Douglas was trying to get away from the court and so she quickly shouted.
Lady: Please don’t let that man go o, don’t let him leave abeg. He is my witness in this case and he can’t leave.
The judge signalled that Douglas be brought forward.
Douglas: Me? God forbid! Do I know you? How can you say I am your witness? Are we related? What kind of talk is that? How am I your witness? Do you know me?
Lady: Ah! Mr. Douglas, what are you trying to do? Are you trying to deny me? Because if that’s what you are trying to do, you better have a rethink because it won’t end well.
Douglas became quiet.
Pastor Chuks’s Lawyer: Young lady what are you talking about? How is this man involved in this case?
Douglas: Lawyer, please o, I am not involved in this case o, Pastor Chris here is my pastor and I just came here to support him, I don’t know this lady and I don’t know what she is talking about o? (He turned to the lady) and you, do I know you? Do you know me? Why are you trying to drag me into what does not concern me? Was I there when Pastor Chris raped you? Why are you calling my name?
