The Lagos Police Command is set to conduct an autopsy on the body of the slain Super TV boss, Usifo Ataga.
Naija News earlier reported that Ataga was gruesomely murdered by his girlfriend, a 21-year-old student of the University of Lagos (UNILAG), Chidinma Ojukwu.
It was learned that the autopsy is, however, been delayed by the pathologist who is expected to carry out the exercise.
A source at the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) told Nigerian Tribune on Monday: “We are ready for the autopsy, but we are waiting for the pathologist to give us a date.”
The source also continued that “the outcome of the autopsy will determine a lot of things in the course of investigations.
“Apart from the number of times that the man was stabbed, the autopsy will also reveal if he was poisoned or drugged before his eventual death.”
The police source also stated that “the outcome of the autopsy will also reveal if the death was pre-planned and we can then know who and who is involved.
“It will also determine the number of charges to be prepared against the suspect and any other person involved in court.”
A senior police source at the state police command also confirmed to the newspaper the readiness of the police for the autopsy.
He said: “There is no new thing for now. An investigation is still ongoing and after the conclusion of our investigations, we will charge whoever is culpable in the crime to court.”
