Prof Ojo, who works with Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospital, Ile-Ife, Osun State, was the first prosecution witness called by the defence.

He was being led in evidence by counsel to the 2nd, 4th and 5th defendants.

The Professor said he joined a team compromising of seven other professionals after his Head of Department, Prof. Akin Komolafe, who got invite from Prof. E. Afolayan to participate in the autopsy on the corpse of late Adegoke.
