The police briefing of journalists today over the allege murder of our late Joy Odama, a 200 level Mass Communications student of Cross River State University of Technology (CRUTECH), has ended with the police insisting the late Ms. Odama died of generator fume as against the first autopsy report, which attributed the cause of her death to “acute cocaine poisoning”.
The police also alleged that the first autopsy report was inconclusive hence the second one it did was more extensive which revealed the cause of her death.
While responding to questions from journalists, the FPRO, CSP Moshood Jimoh said the major suspect in Odama’s death, Alhaji Usman Adamu, who he said is in custody will soon be charged to court.
He also said, the court may in its wisdom decide to order for a fresh autopsy when the matter gets there.
It would be recalled that the representative of the Yala Community and president of Basic Rights Enlightenment Foundation, Bar Godwin Offiono and Augustine Okechukwu respectively have raised the alarm over the move by police pathologists to attribute the cause of the late Joy Odama’s death to generator fume.
That fear has now been confirmed.
The police also promised to get back to journalists when it would be set to arraign the suspect in court.
Earlier there was an attempt to cover up what may be a planned homicide before right groups and journalists and bloggers intervened to make the story go viral and put pressure on the police to act.
