The police boss however said that 13 pathologists and consultants from all the parties involved were present during the conduct of the autopsy test in Lagos.

All the suspects denied the allegations of torture, bullying and administering of poisonous substance to the deceased. “Allegation that the deceased was being forced to join a cult group was also not established as other students interviewed denied this.”
He warned warned those threatening to go to any length to protest the outcome of the investigations to go the legal way or be ready to face the full wrath of the law.
