The late Mohammed Fawehinmi’s family has stated that he will be buried only after an autopsy.

Mrs Basirat Fawehinmi-Biobaku, Gani Fawehinmi’s eldest child, corroborated this.

Fawehinmi-Biobaku made the announcement on behalf of the family at a news conference in Lagos on Thursday.

Mohammed, the eldest son of late legal legend and activist Chief Gani Fawehinmi, died on Wednesday at the age of 52 in a Lagos hospital following a brief illness.

Fawehinmi-Biobaku stated that the family would not know the cause of his death until the autopsy results were released.

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

Fawehinmi-Biobaku added that the family was also waiting for the younger brother of the deceased, Mr 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 was said to have complained of breathing difficulties and was taken to a hospital, where he later died.

He had a law degree from the University of Buckingham, England, and was called to the Nigerian bar in 1998.

The deceased was the Chairman of Nigerian Weekly Law Reports before his demise.

In 2003, he had an accident in Lagos, which affected his spinal cord, confining him to a wheelchair.
