Her request was denied because one of the presiding judges claimed that he was a Seventh Day Adventist and his religion wouldn’t allow him to seat past 6 pm. Below are so many beliefs practiced by the said religion that you probably didn’t know existed;

A Day begins from sunset to sunset.

The world believes that a day begins from noon but for the seventh day Adventist, a day begins from 6 pm when the sun sets to the next day when the sun gets to set again.
