A MAN accused of murdering Drummer Lee Rigby in Woolwich casually blew kisses to his friends in court today as he requested he now be referred to as Mujaahid Abu Hamza. Holding a copy of the Koran, Michael Adebolajo made his first court appearance today at Westminster Magistrates’ Court today.
Wearing all white, Adebolajo blew a kiss to a man in the public gallery, and they both pointed to the sky. As he was asked to stand, Adebolajo said: “May I ask why? May I ask why?” When told it is customary to stand, he said: “I want to sit.” After standing when asked to at the end of today’s short hearing, he asked Deputy Chief Magistrate Emma Arbuthnot: “May I respond to you? You would prefer me not to speak to you. I am only a man. “I would like to alleviate the pain if I may?” He then kissed the Koran and raised his arm into the air.
