A yet-to-be-identified man has reportedly died at the premises of the Supreme Court shortly after the apex court delivered its judgment on the election petition.
The man who collapsed when the 2nd Respondent’s spokespersons were addressing the media was rushed to the Supreme Court first aid department but reportedly died shortly afterwards.
Eye witnesses confirmed they saw a Police vehicle conveying the remains of the unknown man out of the court premises to the morgue.
It is, however, not known if the man collapsed as a result of the verdict of the Supreme Court or from an unknown cause.
The seven-member panel of the Supreme Court has dismissed former President John Mahama’s suit challenging the 2020 election results.
In reading the judgment on Thursday, March 4, 2020, Chief Justice, Anim Yeboah stated that the petitioner failed to prove his case beyond a reasonable doubt.
He added that the errors announced by the Electoral Commission Chairperson, Jean Mensa, which were subsequently corrected cannot be used to invalidate the election.
