The Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, has directed operatives of the Special Investigation Panel , SIP, to carry out a comprehensive probe of the death of three National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members.
Reports stated that the SIP headed by a retired Assistant Inspector-General of Police, Ali Amodu, was set up by the IG to handle high profile investigations and he also contacted a renowned pathologist, Dr. Wilson Akhiwu, to assist in the investigations.
A source disclosed to Punch that arrangements had been made for the pathologist to meet with the police detectives handling the case. “A renowned police pathologist, Dr Wilson (Akhiwu) would be flying into Abuja from Ibadan by Tuesday morning (today) to assist with the investigations.
”Arrangements have been concluded for the exhumation of Ifedolapo’s body for a thorough medical examination.
“The probe would present an independent report on what actually transpired because the NYSC has been giving conflicting reports. The parents are saying one thing; the NYSC is saying another thing and the President had ordered that an investigation should be conducted. The report will be very comprehensive,” the source added.
The deceased, Chinyerun Nwenenda Elechi, Ifedolapo Oladepo and Monday Asuguo Ukeme, belonged to the 2016 Batch ‘B’(Stream 1) Orientation Course.
