Man wins GHC 73,000 in court one year after his death

In a rather bizarre case of justice even after death, a deceased man, Salia Adams, has won a lawsuit against Ecobank Ghana and he is set to be paid GHC 73,000.

YEN.com.gh has come by the issue of a deceased man, Salia Adams, who has apparently won a lawsuit filed against continental financial powerhouse, Ecobank.

Adams, according to Ghanaweb.com, used to work with Selemok Ghana Limited when he was alive.

He sued Ecobank Ghana for unauthorised transactions that occurred in its account through online banking.

Represented by Lamtiig Apanga, Salemok Ghana Limited led by Adams, filed a suit alleging that the bank transferred money from its account between 22, 2014 and about December 24, 2014 an amount of $8000 or about GHC 45,000 in current exchange rate, without Salemok's say-so.

Though the suit was filed in 2014, the case was in court for about 4years till the plaintiff was asked to testify in 2018. Unfortunately, Salia Adams passed on few weeks after testifying in the case.

Exactly a year upon the death of Salia, an Accra High Court in charge of the said case ordered Ecobank to pay the plaintiff the sum of approximately GHc73,000 being the refund of $5,000, interest on the said amount from December 2014 to date of final payment, GHc10,000 as damages for negligence and cost of GHc8,000.

Meanwhile, a man has reportedly met his untimely death after his girlfriend's lover found him on the bed of the sidechic.

According to information making rounds on social media, the man who has a wife and kids was shot dead on the sidechic's bed after her boyfriend came to meet him.
