FG To Exhume Late Corp Member’s Body For Autopsy

The Minister of Sports Solomon Dalung on Thursday hinted that the Federal Government may request that body of the youth corps member, Ifedolapo Oladepo, who died recently at the Kano State NYSC Orientation Camp,  be exhumed for autopsy.

The National Youths Service Corps had, in its investigation’s report, said the girl, a first-class graduate of Transportation Management from Ladoke Akintola University Ogbomosho, died of a kidney infection.

President Muhammadu Buhari had yesterday ordered an independent investigation into the circumstances that led to the death of Ifedolapo who has since been buried.

But the sports minister explained today that the independent investigation ordered by Buhari would require an autopsy to balance the government’s conclusion on the incident.

“The report given by NYSC is normal and it’s natural that after investigation, they must present their own report on what has happened. But in view of the fact that there 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 (President Buhari) not trusting the process; but gauge the report alongside other opinion; then, we’ll now be able to tell Nigerians that there were 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,” Dalung said.
