MYSTERY! Lawyer Slumps, Dies While Cross-Examining Witness
An Aba based lawyer has reportedly slumped and died during a court session.
Obinna Onuoha slumped on Wednesday while cross examining a witness to the opposing party at High Court I in Obingwa Local Area.
The incident caused pandemonium as people scampered for safety rather than making effort to revive Onuoha.
It was learnt that Onuoha died before he was rushed for medical attention.
A source close to the family said the legal practitioner died of cardiac arrest. It appears an autopsy was conducted later on Wednesday.
A lawyer, who pleaded to remain anonymous, lamented the death of Onuoha whom he said could have been saved if there was an emergency unit within the court premises.
“I don’t really know the man too well. But I was told that the man is an Ngwa man. It is a pity that such a thing could happen. It could happen to anyone. Lawyers are human beings after all.
“I suspect that it could be stress or something related to heart attack which could have simply been dealt with if there were any medical personnel or even a Para-medic around to attend to him.
“I believe that we should always check our health status frequently which I am sure that will help to reduce incidence of such because constant checkup and visit to our physicians would help to reveal some of the hidden things in our body system.”
Another lawyer however said that they suspected that the colleague died because of an internal head injury as, the “man was said to have landed, hitting his head on the ground.”
The chairman, Aba branch of Nigeria Bar Association (NBA), Bob Ogu in a telephone conversation confirmed the incident and lamented the loss.
Ogu stated that late Onuoha was more than a colleague to him.
