Lagos State Govt condemns alleged second autopsy on Whitney Adeniran

“Whilst we have not received any such official communication requesting for exhumation, however, if and when we do receive such a request, we shall be opposed to it.

“The circumstances for exhumation under the Coroners’ Systems Law, 2015, do not arise in this case. “Additionally, it is not our intention to further traumatize the deceased’s family.

“We are working closely with the police who have given their reassurance that the duplicate case file would be forwarded on March 6 to the Directorate of Public Prosecutions to aid speedy issuance of legal advice,” it added.
