Ekiti State Teaching Hospital on Sunday said its autopsy report on the Speaker of the state house of assembly, Fuminiyi Afuye, did not infiythatnhe was poisoned.

In a statement by the Head, Corporate Affairs, Rolake Adewunmi, the hospital said the preliminary results did not show any trace of foul play.

It reads: “The Management of Ekiti State University Teaching Hospital, Ado Ekiti, has debunked the rumours making 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 fake 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 neither was 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, there are procedures, rules and regulations guiding autopsy results. Saying whenever the result is ready, it will be given to his next of kin, and not the public.

He added that that Forensic Pathologists will 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.”
