Chrisland school has been granted permission to conduct another autopsy on the remains of Whitney Omodesola Adeniran, a 12-year-old student of the school who di£d during the school’s inter-house sport in Lagos.
Magistrate Olabisi Fajana granted the permission on Tuesday, April 4, while ruling on an application filed by Chrisland School, seeking leave to access some items obtained from the corpse of the deceased.
Channel Television reports that the school said this will enable it to consult with the independent forensic pathologist and to allow the consultant to testify accurately on his findings before the court.
The school told the coroner that the request was made because its representative pathologist, Olugbenga Oyewole, only attended the initial autopsy carried out by the government as an observer and did not carry out any tests or dealt with any samples.
The items ordered to be released to the applicant are the paraffin block of the skin sample and slides from which the diagnosis of electr%cution was made, the samples of the urine, bl%%d, and other body fluid collected at autopsy, samples of bone and muscle taken from the deceased for independent DNA analysis.
Other items are all photographs taken during the conduct of the autopsy, copies of any other working samples and documents made in the course of the autopsy, and the result of all toxicology tests conducted.
