Ayilara upheld the autopsy report carried out on the late Adeleke at the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology Teaching Hospital as well as the toxicology report on the deceased.

“I have critically gone through all the evidences before me. From the totality of evidences, the possibility of poisoning of the deceased is not sustainable. I have not been able to trace any link to the poisoning by anybody. The autopsy report and the toxicologist report are very specific to say there was no traces of poison or heavy metal in the blood of the deceased. Therefore, it is my firm opinion that he was not poisoned, I so hold,” he said.
