"Anybody wey sha rig the autopsy all of them go join Mohbad."

"This issue is becoming annoying... Everyone have been talking about how angry they feel.. I guess I feel more than anger in me now... I tuned to radio and its his song everywhere!! Dmn death you do this one sponsored by Naira and Samlarry!!! Dmn!!"
"I think a bill should be passed stating that an autopsy should be carried out immediately someone is confirmed dead."
"Chaiii so this guy die true true I was still hoping on last minute miracle ooo."
"They should sha take the body to different autopsy center. Because 1 center can’t be trusted."
There is nothing wrong with the quickness of the autopsy, at least not yet
In an exclusive chat with Dr. Damian Avar, popularly known online as Sabi Doctor, he explains the time frame it takes for an autopsy examination to be concluded and the number of weeks it will likely take to confirm the result.
"Now, understanding the peculiarities of the Nigerian system, many observers are suspicious of how very quickly the autopsy was carried out. They fear that, perhaps, the quickness of the autopsy may imply lack of thoroughness or a possible collusion to pervert the course of justice.While these concerns are very real and appreciated- considering the Nigerian factor- I want to bring to the notice of Nigerians that there is nothing wrong with the quickness of the autopsy, at least not yet. And if at all there are plans to pervert the course of justice by interested parties, the speed with which the autopsy was carried out does not suggest so.
"I say this because most autopsies are generally concluded under 4hrs, during which the pathologist, in most cases, is able to determine the time of death (TOD), or even the suspected cause of death (COD)- in addition to a few other basic details.
"That said, it may take a few weeks (2-6 weeks) before every relevant detail is accounted for. Tissue samples collected during dissection are sent to the lab for analysis and/or toxicology screening. These screenings often take some time. So, while the autopsy may have appeared "too quick" to many observers, the complete analysis and determination of details relevant to his death may take some time before they are known."
Sam Larry speaks from hideout the second time, addresses the government
