Adegoke said, “The report has been submitted to Osogbo (Osun Command) and Abuja (Force Headquarter). We don’t know what is written inside. We have not been called, but we know they will call us soon.”

At the commencement of the procedure, the remains of Adegoke packed in a body bag was brought out of the morgue and taken out in an ambulance to Radiation Room, where an x-ray was done.
The body was later returned to the mortuary, as a team of pathologists commenced the post mortem after they had analysed the clothing that the deceased wore last before his death.
