Body of dead Corper to be exhumed for autopsy

Report says Federal Government may order that the body of Ifedolapo Oladepo be exhumed for autopsy to determine the cause of her death.

Ifedolapo died in Gwoza General Hospital, Kano, weeks ago after she fell sick in NYSC camp and was not properly treated as claimed by her family.

The Sports and Youth Development minister, Solomon Dalung gave the indication while speaking with State House Correspondents on Thursday.

“The report given by NYSC is normal and natural, that after investigation they must present their own report on what has happened but in view of the fact that they are many versions on what led to the death of the NYSC member, it would be fair to look at another version of what happened to be sure of what actually transpired.

It doesn’t have to do with not trusting the process but gauge the report alongside other opinion.

Then we will now be able to tell Nigerians that this is the circumstances on how she died. “Don’t forget that the report of the NYSC has no autopsy and an independent investigation will require an autopsy and now the autopsy alongside the report will balance and it will fortify the conclusion the government will make,” he said.
