BEVERLY HILLS, December 08, (THEWILL) – The Minister of Sports, Solomon Dalung, has revealed that the corpse of a 2016 batch B National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) member, Miss Ifedolapo Oladepo, who died at the Kano Orientation Camp, will be exhumed for autopsy.

The Minister who spoke with State House correspondents on Thursday at the Presidential Villa, Abuja claimed that the report given by the NYSC was normal and natural but with the investigation ordered by President Muhammadu Buhari, on Wednesday , the remains of the late corper, who had already been buried, would require have to be exhumed.

“After investigation, they must present their own report on what has happened. But in view of the fact that there are many versions on what led to the death of the NYSC member, it would be fair to look at another version of what happened to be sure of what actually transpired,” he said.

“It doesn't have to do with not trusting the process; but gauge the report alongside other opinion, then, we will now be able to tell Nigerians that this is the circumstance on how she died.

“Don't forget that the report of the NYSC has no autopsy and an independent investigation will require an autopsy and now the autopsy alongside the report will balance and it will fortify the conclusion the government will make.”

THEWILL recalls that President Buhari had ordered investigation into the cause of death of dolapo following cries and allegations of negligence that greeted her demise.
