OSUN State police commissioner, Wale Olokode, at the weekend said that the autopsy on the remains of Timothy Adegoke, the Master in Business Administration (MBA) student of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, who was killed last week, would be conducted today (Monday).
Olokode, who made this known in Osogbo, also hinted that the Force Headquarters is not taking over the case as being rumored in some quarters.
On the autopsy, the police boss said: “The autopsy would have been conducted last Friday at the UNIOSUN Teaching Hospital, Osogbo, but it was later shifted because the family of the deceased wanted a medical expert who would represent them during the procedure to be part of the medical team.
“The person who was to represent the family did not show up on Friday, forcing the shift of the autopsy to Monday (today) to enable all the parties to be represented.
“We planned to have the autopsy on Friday, but the family of the deceased said they would want an expert who would represent them to observe the procedure.
“We expected them throughout Friday and we did not see them, that is why we chose Monday for the procedure. If not for that, it (autopsy) would have been conducted. We will do our best to ensure that justice prevails.”
While commenting on the rumored taking over of the case by the Force Headquarters, the police boss said, “The headquarters is not taking over the matter. In any case, if the headquarters wants to take over the investigation, I don’t have options. I can’t stop them.
The NIPOST CEO said the family would wait on the police to conduct its investigations diligently, but said that the case would be one of those the police would use to demonstrate to Nigerians that no crime is beyond its capacity to unravel.
Also, the senator representing Oyo South in the National Assembly, Senator Kola Balogun, called on the police to carry out thorough investigation into the murder.
Balogun, in a condolence message he sent to the family of the slain chartered accountant, released by his Special Adviser (Media and Publicity), Mr Dapo Falade, described the killing of the late Adegoke as heinous and a great crime against humanity
