Despite the reservations shared
by her doctor, the 1st Suspect
prevailed on the deceased and
the abortion was carried out
against medical advice.

Suspect contributed monetarily
to facilitate a kidney transplant
for the deceased.
It further stated that, However,
her situation worsened and the
ensuing medical complications
resulted in the avoidable death
of Ms. Ifeoluwa Dolapo. Curiously,
since the tragic demise of Ms.
Ifeoluwa Dolapo, no criminal complaint
has been made particularly given
the chain of events that led to her
death and that of the fetus.
