Minister of Youth and Sports Solomon Dalung, whose ministry supervises the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), disclosed this while fielding questions from newsmen at the State House in Abuja on Thursday.

Dalung said: “In view of the fact that there are many versions of what led to the death of the NYSC member, it would be fair to look at another version of what happened to be sure of what actually transpired.

“It doesn’t have to do with not trusting the process; but gauge the report alongside other opinion, then, we will be able to tell Nigerians that this is the circumstance on how she died.

“Don’t forget that the report of the NYSC has no autopsy and an independent investigation will require an autopsy and now the autopsy alongside the report will balance and fortify the conclusion the government will make.”

The late Ifedolapo’s younger sister, Kemi Oladapo had accused the NYSC and a student doctor of killing the deceased.

“NYSC killed you with their negligence and stupid student doctor that knows nothing who gave you the injection, saw how your body reacted to it and turned off your phones. May the wrath of God be upon such people and may they have unending sadness in their lives..” Kemi wrote on her Facebook wall.
