80 Dead Synagogue South African Members To Be Conveyed Home

BODIES of more than 80 South Africans, who died when a guest house of the Synagogue Church of all Nations (SCOAN) collapsed in Nigeria, could be taken home by the end of October, according to a report.

“We are looking at three weeks,” Professor John Obafunwa, chief medical examiner of Lagos State and vice chancellor of the state university, was quoted as saying by an online media.

 “I would be surprised if we had to wait till November. I expect all bodies to be out by that time. The inquest could drag on for weeks and months. But we’re not going to delay the release of bodies to family members because of that,” he said.

Obafunwa was overseeing the identification process and was speaking from Lagos University Teaching Hospital, where some of the remains were being kept.

Obafunwa said the autopsies had been completed and samples were shipped out for DNA analysis.

He said the process of identification had been slow because Nigeria did not have facilities to analyse DNA.
