The court was yet to commence sitting when the incident occurred.

Witnesses said the deceased was in court to stand as a witness in a case involving his friend.

A staff member of the court, who spoke on condition of anonymity, 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, “he said.

Another witness, Tunde Ariyo, said policemen from the Enu-Owa Police division were called in to take the deceased to the mortuary.

Police sources at the Enu-Owa Police Division confirmed the incident and said the case had been transferred to the Homicide Section of the Police headquarters in Akure.
