How Witness Slumped, Passed Inside Court

CONFUSION ensued at an Ondo State High Court following the slumping and tragic passing of a witness and septuagenarian during a sitting on Wednesday.

The deceased was reportedly in the court in Ondo, headquarters of Ondo West LGA, to bear witness in a case involving his friend.

A court clerk, who pleaded anonymity, told Daily Trust that the 70-year-old man suddenly collapsed inside the court while the case was mentioned for appearance.

“The man was in court with his friend and suddenly, he stood up where he was seated and fell down, hitting his head on the tiles and he passed on.

“He didn’t look like someone who was sick and he didn’t interact with anyone but suddenly gave up,” he said.

It was gathered that policemen from the Enu-Owa Division in Ondo picked up the corpse and deposited it at the morgue.

Funmilayo Odunlami-Omisanya, Police Public Relations officer (PPRO), in the state, confirmed the incident, stressing that the case had been transferred to the homicide section of the police headquarters in Akure.
