“Pastor contributed to my sister’s killing by husband”

Meanwhile, the Head of Department of Pathology and Forensic medicine, Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH), Dr. SS Soyemi, has rubbished the autopsy report that dominated the media, which claimed the deceased died of respiratory seizure.

“I am a civil servant and not permitted to speak to you. But we are embarrassed on what we read. The reports are baseless and mischievous.

“There is nothing like respiratory seizure or water in the head. If this interpretation is true, then it means she died of convulsion. Respiratory seizure in medical terms refers to convulsion.

“That is not what we forwarded to the coroner, the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) and the Lagos Police Command,” Dr. Soyemi said.
