A medical examination carried out on the late Prof. Festus Iyayi to determine his cause of death has shown no evidence of bullets.
A source familiar with autopsy informed SaharaReporters that though there were holes in Iyayi’s body, they could not trace the piercings to any bullet, adding that medical examiners recovered no pellets from the late Professor’s body.
The autopsy was carried out by a team of expert pathologists, witnesses from ASUU, medical doctors at the University of Benin Teaching Hospital and the Nigerian government and it was unanimously determined that Mr. Iyayi was not shot.
The autopsy was reportedly done about a week before the commencement of Mr. Iyayi’s funeral and the official report of the autopsy is still being put together.
However, members of the late Professor Iyayi’s family and activists close to him said they are yet to be informed of the final results of the autopsy.
According to his son, Omole, the family had not received any official autopsy reports from doctors in Benin. He said they were therefore surprised at the conclusions.
The late professor’s funeral ended yesterday with a “thanksgiving Mass at Saint Mathew’s Catholic Church in Ugbegun, Edo State while his remains were buried in the same town on Saturday.
