Opalola, however, said that the deceased’s body was deposited at UTH as against Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospital, which she erroneously mentioned during a radio programme “based on misinformation.”

She also said that no part of the deceased’s body was removed when it was exhumed in the presence of his family members, the police and the pathologist, as being rumoured.

“The family has indicated that they will be available on Monday (tomorrow) for the conduct of the autopsy.

“I will like to add that the deceased’s family members were equally present when the remains of the deceased were exhumed.

“The police, a pathologist and family members of the deceased witnessed the exhumation of the body and the family members can attest to it that no body part of the deceased was missing,” she said.

Adegoke was said to have travelled to Osun to sit for an examination at OAU Distance Learning Centre, Moro in Ife North Local Government Area when he was declared missing on Nov. 7.

Justice William Olamide of the State High Court, while delivering the judgment, said all evidence by the convict to absolve himself of culpability in the allegation of stealing government money lacked substance.

However, the judge acquitted the second defendant, Azeez Musa as he emphasized that Aminu solely committed the offence.
