Man collapses at Edo poll tribunal

| credits:

 

There was pandemonium at the venue of the  Election Petitions Tribunal in Benin on Thursday as a man collapsed during the tribunal’s proceedings.

The incident happened as a witness for Maj.-Gen. Charles Airhiavbere (retd.), a governorship candidate for the Peoples Democratic Party, was being cross-examined.

The man whose identity could not be confirmed as at the time of filing this report, slumped during the resumed hearing of Airhiavbere’s petition challenging the re-election of Governor Adams Oshiomhole.

The man, who dressed in a native attire, fell and hit his head on the floor, resulting in serious bleeding.

Unconfirmed sources at the Central Hospital, Benin, where the man was rushed to, said he was epileptic.

The incident brought to an abrupt end proceedings at the tribunal as members of the panel retired into the inner chambers, while some party leaders left the courtroom to discuss the incident.
