Politician Prince Ned Nwoko says he hopes to introduce a bill in the Senate that will make it mandatory for an autopsy to be carried out within a specific time before a deceased person is buried.
Nwoko said this in a post on Instagram while reacting to the demise of singer Mohbad. He criticised the decision to hurriedly bury Mohbad without carrying an autopsy.
‘’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.”
