Politician Prince Ned Nwoko has revealed plans to propose a Senate bill requiring a mandatory autopsy before burial.
This comes as he expressed concerns on Instagram about the quick burial of singer Mohbad and questioned the absence of an autopsy.
On Instagram, Nwoko wrote that he aims to address this issue to ensure thorough investigations into such cases.
’The unfortunate and untimely death of Mohbad has raised many issues that should be addressed promptly. The circumstances of his death and the cause of death should not be left to speculations. The police and the DSS should wade in immediately but more importantly the state government should order for an autopsy report without further formalities. This should have been done and report to the station for clearance before he was buried. As a matter of fact I hope to introduce a bill that will make it mandatory nation wide for an autopsy to be done within a specific time before anyone is buried and the cost. of such reports must be paid by the governments. (Local governments and states) The cause of death of anyone should not be left to the wild imaginations of people. The innocent should be protected and the guilty punished. Situations like this gives rise to new laws for the good governance of the country.”
