Crusco had told the court that the dead bodies of the set of twins were deposited at the UPTH mortuary by the Police Officer who handed them over, ill at the time to her foundation on the 7th of June 2021.
Crusco added that the babies were confirmed dead at the Police clinic on the 9th of June.
The trial Chief Magistrate, Rita Ogugwo, in the ruling, directed that the Chief Medical Director of UPTH, through the Police Officer in charge of the matter furnish the Court, on the next adjourned date, with the whereabouts and relevant documents of the twins—especially as it concerns the depositing of their remains at UPTH morgue.
