|Late Consultant - Dr Thomas|
|Dr Thomas and her family|
The Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mr. Solomon Arase has ordered fresh investigations into the suspicious death of late Consultant Dr Hestia Thomas. This fresh investigation was as a result of the petition dated 3rd November 2015 which was sent to the IGP by Concerned Women Voices.The Group released a statement reproduced below regarding the IGP's orders.
As you can recollect Dr Hestianna Idiodi - Thomas, a Consultant Paediatrician was rushed to the hospital by her husband on Tuesday October 13th with fatal injuries sustained in her home.
The IGP has assigned the case to the Homicide Dept of Zone 2, Onikan which is in charge of Lagos and Ogun States.
Concerned Women Voices hereby expresses it's appreciation to the IGP for approving the petition and making efforts to ensure that the questions being asked by the coalition are answered.
Every human life is sacred.
This is particularly commendable as it is coming a day after the IGP pledged his commitment to enforcing the just enacted Violence Against Persons Prohibition Law which was signed in to law by President Jonathan just before he left office.
This law amongst other things prohibits all forms of violence against women and girls.
