Police ordered autopsy on Adeleke – Pathologist

Dr. Taiwo Sholaja, the pathologist who carried out the autopsy on late Osun State governor, Isiaka Adeleke, on Friday said the postmortem examination he carried out on the deceased was authorised by the police coroner and not the family as being claimed in some quarters.

Sholaja stated this while being led in testimony by the senior legal officer of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH) Teaching Hospital, Mrs. Oyindamola Daramola, and Mr. Bashir Ajibola, a legal practitioner and observer at the coroner hearings.

The pathologist said he received an order dated April 23 and signed by the Police Coroner, Ajiboye Dorcas Olubunmi, for postmortem to be carried out on the late senator.

He said another form relating to the particulars of the deceased was also given to him by the Police Division, Dugbe, Osogbo, for him to provide the force with findings of his examination.

He said at no point was he authorised by Adeleke’s family to carry out autopsy on the deceased.
