The family of Ifedolapo Oladepo, a member of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) who died in Kano orientation camp, has said that the exhumation plan by the panel investigating the death is not necessary.
Ifedolapo’s father insisted that there was no need to exhume the remains of his daughter because the result of the autopsy would only reveal what caused the death and not the negligence of the medical personnel at the NYSC camp clinic, which he insisted led to her death.
Speaking with Punch, he confirmed that a Commissioner of Police called him from Abuja on behalf of the Inspector-General of Police, Mr Ibrahim Idris, and told him of the plan to exhume his daughter’s corpse.
“The person said I would take them to the place where Ifedolapo was buried, adding that we should bring the evidence we have.
“I told him that I would not provide any evidence now until they produce the call log of the conversations between the family and medical personnel at the NYSC camp clinic when Ifedolapo was taken there.
“Some of my daughter’s colleagues, who were at her bedside at the camp clinic, are ready to testify against the medical personnel at the camp clinic,” he added.
Ifedolapo, a first class graduate of Transport Management from the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Ogbomoso, Oyo State, was said to have died because the medical personnel at the NYSC camp administered a medication which she reacted to immediately.
