A consultant pathologist at the Military Hospital, Yaba, Chikodili Nwigwe, has said that due process was followed when a second autopsy was conducted on the remains of Sylvester Oromoni Jnr, the 11-year-old student of Dowen College, Lekki, Lagos.

In an interview with AriseTV, Nwigwe, who was among the eight doctors that witnessed the autopsy at the Lagos State Teaching Hospital, said the necessary protocols were followed in conducting the autopsy on Sylvester. According to her, the autopsy was transparently done and the findings can be reproducible and taken to any other place in the whole world. 

“Due process was followed. All the necessary protocols, methods, laboratory tests, radiological testing, were performed. We had about 8 pathologists there, at the Lagos State University hospital morgue where the second Autopsy was carried out.

As you know, there was an autopsy that had been done before somewhere before his body was brought to LASUTH where we all came together and did the autopsy. 

The autopsy was recorded from start to finish. Photographs were taken, not by one, by many. So whatever you have documented can be corroborated with video and picture evidence.


This can be reproducible, can be taken anywhere by other pathologists, whether in this clime or outside this clime can actually go through the findings, the picture, video evidence. The laboratory test results are all available, the toxicology results are all available and it says, “no poison, no toxin” because that was what was being queried.

Microbiological analysis were done, we proved yes, he had bacterial infection and this was sepsis. There was no bias in the process.”
