Afuye Not Poisoned – EKSUTH Clears Air On Autopsy


The Management of Ekiti State University Teaching Hospital, Ado Ekiti, has debunked the rumours making the rounds that the autopsy result of the late Speaker of Ekiti State House of Assembly, Hon. Funminiyi Afuye, was found to be “poisoning.”

While responding to the news, the Chief Medical Director of the Hospital, Professor Kayode Olabanji, urged the public to disregard the misinformation.

The CMD noted that, even though an autopsy was done on the late Speaker, the preliminary results did not indicate he was poisoned or any foul play suspected.

He explained that the final reports, which require laboratory investigations, will take some days, and it’s not likely to have a significant change in the earlier findings.

According to him, procedures, rules, and regulations guide autopsy results, saying whenever the result is ready, it will be given to his next of kin and not the public.

He added that Forensic Pathologists would never issue a social media report on the dead as it’s against medical ethics.

Prof Olabanji advised the public to ignore the rumours, stressing that it is the handiwork of mischief makers.
