The Chrisland School management have been granted leave by Magistrate Olabisi Fajana to have access to the toxicology samples of tests conducted to enable an independent forensic pathologist’s assessment and evaluation.
The order was issued at the Corona inquest Holden on Tuesday 4th April, at the Samuel Ilori Court House, Ikeja District Court 13, Ogba.
The Magistrate affirms that the application for an independent review was served on both the State and the Counsel to the family and neither the family nor their Counsel filed any counter affidavit to oppose this motion for an independent reevaluation to unravel the truth.
Counsel to the State had earlier applied that the court should order the attendance of the State Pathologist at the cost of the Applicant which the Applicant did not object to.
With both the family and Chrisland school’s counsel aligned on this position, the Court therefore directed that the consultation by the independent forensic pathologist be carried out within Lagos State and the Pathologist of the deceased’s family granted access as an observer during the exercise.
