Tragedy As Witness Dies In Court

A septuagenarian witness has slumped and died inside an Ondo state high court session in Oka, Ondo State.

Gatekeepers News reports that the tragic incident occurred before the court proceedings had begun.

Eye witnesses confirmed that the deceased was a witness in a case involving his friend.

According to one of the court staff member, the elderly man who was in his seventies suddenly collapsed without any collision with anyone or anything.

He said “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 did not collide with anything or anybody that we may say is the cause of his death.”

Another witness, Tunde Ariyo, said the police took the deceased to the mortuary.

The case has been transferred to the homicide section of the police headquarters in Akure, Ondo state for further investigation.
