Commenting, the commissioner of police, Lagos State Police Command, Hakeem Odumosu said, “Based on the result of the autopsy, the court order that we got elapsed and we released the housemaster and the others on bail.

“There was nothing that indicted them of murder. It is a murder case that is not bailable. Every other offense is bailable and they had been in custody for more than 20 days and that is an infringement on their fundamental human rights.

“Since medical and legal reports have not indicted them so far, I think there is a need to allow them to have their freedom because bail is not the end of the case.”

“We are not yet at the peak, but we have concluded our investigation and we have sent the report to the Directorate of Public Prosecution (DPP) for legal advice.

“We have gone through the medical one, which is the post-mortem. The post-mortem we carried out in Delta State, was also carried out in Lagos. The one done in Delta State was only witnessed by the parents of the deceased.

“After I held a meeting with the parties concerned, a post-mortem was carried out in Lagos. The corpse was brought from Delta to Lagos.

“The post-mortem was carried out in Lagos with all the parties involved, that is, parents of the deceased, parents of the students accused, the school authority, and government. These were the four parties that witnessed the post-mortem.”
