The panel will according to David S. Odaibo who is the Director of Administration of the hospital investigate the process of admission of Muhideen Obamomo, management and the eventual release of his  corpse.
It will also investigate motives behind the concealment of accurate information provided by the patient’s relatives, investigate the role played by Prof A.K Salami and make appropriate recommendations.
Meanwhile the hospital management has ordered that Prof A. K Salami be suspended whilst the investigation continues.
‘The Management of  the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital here by suspends Prof A K Salami as Senior Consultant in the hospital.
