|Late Dr. Hestianna Thomas and her husband|
Thomas as reliably gathered, submitted himself to policemen at Ajao estate division immediately his wife was certified dead at the LUTH last week.
However during interrogation, he reportedly told policemen that his wife could have committed suicide, maintaining that he knew nothing about her death.
Sources explained that although Dr Thomas was the complainant “ but with the marks of violence on the body of the deceased, it leaves us with no option than to detain him until the contrary is proved”.
Spokesman for the Lagos State Police Command, Mr Joe Offor, a Deputy Superintendent of Police, DSP said, “ We do not know the cause of her death yet. But there were marks of violence on her body. Investigation is however still on. The corpse has been deposited at the LUTH morgue”.
However, Management of the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, LUTH, Idi Araba, Lagos, has urged the public including to refrain from speculations about the cause of death of one of its consultants.
The Nigerian Medical Association has promised the autopsy results will be out before this weekend.
NB- Dr. Hestianna's husband is yet to be found culpable in her death. Only the police and autopsy results can indict him. So he is innocent till proven guilty.
