G. Oshoala, the lead State Prosecutor. According to vanguard, it was discovered during the autopsy that the deceased’s brain was heavy, swollen and filled with water and it was highly unlikely that the deceased inflicted the injuries on herself because of the multiplicity of injuries.

During autopsy, it was also discovered that the deceased had black eyes (pupils) a tell-tale sign of brain injury. “We opened up the body and brought out all the organs. We also opened up the skull to bring out the brain. Blood collection was discovered in the skull, just beneath the skin. Ronke’s autopsy revealed that she had suffered past injuries to her brain. “We took samples from the hemorrhage (bleeding) in the brain, which suggest past trauma.” he added.

At the previous court proceedings on Sept. 20, Ronke’s sister, Miss Bolatito Bewaji, had revealed during her testimony that Ronke had approached a lawyer to file for divorce on the day she was allegedly murdered by Lekan. She also revealed to the court a history of domestic violence Ronke had endured from Lekan.
