The report of the autopsy carried out on the late Ronke Shonde is finally out and reveals that the deceased did not die because of the marks found on her body.
According to reports from Punch…That the result, which was still sketchy, showed that the cause of the death might be more complex than earlier thought.
A source on Tuesday said the report was still being compiled, adding that only a phase had been completed.
He said, “As of now, the report showed that the marks of violence on the victim have nothing to do with her death. Other areas are still being explored. The actual thing that killed her has not been stated.
The Lagos State University Teaching Hospital only began an autopsy on the late Shonde a week after her death, after her husband surrendered himself to the police.
Meanwhile, there is a new twist to the story. The management of Learn Africa, the company where Ronke Shonde and her alleged Lover Kayode worked, claims that the duo had left the firm before the tragic incident.
Recall that Kayode, who worked as the General Manager of the firm was accused of going on trips with her while having an affair, but the GM denied the claims, insisting that their relationship was purely professional. You can read it up here.
Now, the management of the publishing firm claims that both Shonde and Kayode left since March.
According to the reports: A statement from the company on Tuesday, said both Ronke and Kayode left the employ of the organisation on the 8th and 10th of March 2016, respectively.
The statement read in part, “Late Mrs. Ronke Shonde and Mr. Kayode Oluokun were former employees of Learn Africa Plc. However, as of the time of Mrs. Shonde’s death, they had ceased to be workers of Learn Africa Plc since the 8th and 10th of March 2016, respectively.
“During the period of their employment, the management is not in a position to confirm or deny the existence of a relationship between these former employees in any other capacity other than as colleagues.”
Speaking on the latest developments, the Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmos, confirmed that the police have not received the report.
“I just spoke with the people in charge now and they said the result is not complete yet,” Badmos said, adding, “I will advise we exercise patience and caution. The police are also monitoring the case and we intend to get the report soon. This will be disclosed to the public.”
