Mohammed Fawehinmi

The late lawyer Mohammed Fawehinmi will be buried after an autopsy is conducted, the family said on Thursday.

Basirat Fawehinmi-Biobaku, eldest child of the deceased’s father the late Gani Fawehinmi, who spoke on behalf of the family, made the announcement at a news conference in Lagos.

Mrs Fawehinmi-Biobaku said the family could not preempt the cause of his death until the release of the autopsy result.

She added that the deceased would be buried once the family concludes necessary arrangements.

Fawehinmi-Biobaku added that the family was also waiting for the younger brother of the deceased, Saheed Fawehinmi, from the United States.

She said the family, though still saddened and in shock, would announce his funeral arrangements in due course.

“This is after consultations with all relevant stakeholders, both in the country and outside the country,” she said.

Mohammed complained of breathing difficulties and was taken to a hospital where he died.
