Barely twenty four hours after President Muhammadu Buhari ordered investigation into the death of some corps members who died recently in various orientation camps, it has emerged that the the Federal Government may exhume the body of one them, Miss Ifedalapo Oladepo, a 2016 Batch ‘B’ corps member, who died at the Kano Orientation Camp for autopsy.
Mr. Solomon Dalung, the mister of sports and youth development, gave the indication an interview Journalists at the state house on Thursday.
According to the minister, “The report given by NYSC is normal and natural, that after investigation they must present their own report on what has happened.
“But in view of the fact that there are many versions of 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.
“It doesn’t have to do with not trusting the process but to gauge the report alongside other opinion; then we will now be able to tell Nigerians that these are the circumstances surrounding her death.
“Don’t forget that the report of the NYSC had no autopsy; but an independent investigation will require an autopsy.
“The autopsy, alongside the report, will fortify the conclusion the government will make.”
