A septuagenarian who showed up to testify in a case involving his friend has reportedly slumped and died inside an Ondo State High Court in Oka, Ondo.


He collapsed suddenly without any apparent interaction or collision with anyone or anything. An eyewitness 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.
