75-Year Old Woman Slumps At Igbosere Magistrates’ Court

A 75-year old woman on Thursday afternoon slumped at the first floor of the Igbosere Magistrates’ Court Lagos after climbing the staircase to the first floor.

Following the unfortunate development, the chief security officer at the court, Mr. Lateef Bello raised an alarm which attracted his colleagues and other litigants who rushed there to rescue her. The woman passed out urine and started shivering on the ground as the rescuers tried to carry her.

When the victim could not talk or stand on her feet for about one hour, the commissioner for oath at the court, Mrs. O.A Mustapha went to the Lagos High Court on Igbosere Road, Lagos Island to bring a Toyota Hiace bus with the inscription ‘Lagos State Judiciary Probate Registry’ with registration number: EL822LSD to convey her to the Lagos Island General Hospital for treatment.


The woman could not be identified as at the time of writing this report as there was nothing on her to identify her.

Sympathizers who spoke about the incident said the victim must have slumped due to exhaustion in climbing the staircase at the court.
