Pursuant to s. 15 (1) of the Coroners System Law 2007 of Lagos State which provides thus: The Coroner shall hold an inquest whenever he is informed that the death of a deceased person lying within his Coroners’ District was a result of death in a violent, unnatural or suspicious situation. “We request that an inquest be convoked as required by the Coroners law of Lagos State. You may wish to assign the inquest to the appropriate district coroner,” Agbakoba stated.
