Lagos state government condemns plans to exhume the body of late Whitney Adeniran

The Lagos state government has denounced alleged intentions to exhume the corpse of Whitney Adeniran, the Chrisland student who was electrocuted while participating in inter-house competitions at her school.

Recall that her mother, Blessing Adeniran, claimed that the Chrisland School administration had contacted the cops and requested a new autopsy. This would imply that the late Whitney’s corpse, which was buried on March 2, would be unearthed.


The Lagos state Ministry of Justice has stated that it will oppose any plans to exhume the late Whitney’s corpse in a statement issued this afternoon, March 4.


The statement read;

“The Lagos State Ministry of Justice is aware of the current ongoing dialogue about the alleged plans to exhume the body of the late Whitney Omodesola Adeniran, a student of Chrisland Schools whose death as revealed by the autopsy, conducted by Lagos State University Teaching Hospital was as a result of asphyxia and electrocution.
Whilst we have not received any such official communication requesting for exhumation, however if and when we do receive such a request, we shall be opposed to it.
In any event, the circumstances for exhumation under the Coroners’ Systems Law, 2015 do not arise in this
case.
Additionally, it is not our intention to further traumatize the deceased’s family.
We are working closely with the police who have given their reassurance that the duplicate case file would be forwarded on Monday, 6th of March, 2023 to the Directorate of Public Prosecutions to aid the speedy issuance of Legal Advice.”
