The Consultant Pathologist of Osun University Teaching Hospital (UTH), Dr Waheed Oluogun, on Monday confirmed that the remains of late Timothy Adegoke, a postgraduate student of Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife, Osun, were with the hospital for autopsy.

Oluogun, who spoke at the hospital complex in Osogbo, said the hospital management was waiting for the arrival of family members of the deceased or their representatives to commence the autopsy process.

“We are waiting for the relative or pathologist or any physician from the relative of the deceased to be present for the autopsy before we commence the post-mortem examination on the late Timothy Adegoke.

“The hospital can carry out the autopsy with the permission from the deceased’s family lawyer, but a relative still have to be present to re-identify the body so that there will not be any bias in the report,” he said.

He said the autopsy process would take about two hours, while the result would take about two to three weeks to be ready.
