Land Dispute: Witness Slumps and Dies before Testifying in Lagos Court



An Ikeja High Court was on Thursday thrown into confusion after an unnamed witness slumped and died in the court just before testifying before Justice O.A. Olayinka in a land dispute case.

The deceased, who was in his late 30s had come court to testify in a land dispute.

“Before the case was called for trial, he started coughing and gasping and had to leave the courtroom.

He was vomiting a lot of blood and onlookers were scared to go near him.

He collapsed on the corridors of the courtroom and a medical team came in an ambulance to take body away.

His lawyer informed Justice Olayinka of his client’s death and she immediately stopped proceedings for the day,” a witness said.

When NAN visited the courtroom, clots of blood were  seen on the corridors of the courtroom as well as the blood-stained shirt and leather slippers of the deceased.

    You need to take people to the court of God before meeting them anywhere
    This is a spiritual world
    Let’s be prayerful.

    Why must everything be attributed to the supernatural ? It’s more likely this guy was poisoned so as not to give evidence. Simply getting someone to slip something into his food – by someone who knows his movements us all that’s needed.
