At first, Umar instructed that Onnoghen should be offered a seat. But after few minutes, he realized that  him (Onnoghen) was still standing and asked him directly to sit on a seat in the dock.

“‎My Lord, sit down”, he said, but Onnoghen replied him, and said, “I will use the seat when I need it”.
