A Yaba Senior Magistrate’s Court today summoned the Vice Chancellor, Lagos State University, LASU, Ojo, Professor John Oladapo Obafunwa who was the pathologist that performed the autopsy on the slain banker, Mrs. Titilayo Arowolo.

Senior Magistrate, Mrs. M. O. Olajuwon also ordered the Investigation Police Office, IPO, Supol Aghene of the State Criminal Investigation Department, SCID, Panti, Yaba, and Mrs. Toun Oyakhire, who reportedly saw the late Titilayo’s corpse to appear before the court on Friday, 18 November, 2011.

According to the court, the trio will give account of the late banker’s corpse on or about  24 June, 2011 when she was allegedly stabbed to death by her husband, Akolade Arowolo.

Meanwhile, in another murder case brought before Mrs. Olajuwon, she ordered Corporal Wasiu Adesina, 35, to be remanded in Ikoyi Prison, Lagos till 14 December.
