Her lawyer, Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa told newsmen that she was released on Wednesday March 24.

He also disclosed that the Directorate of Public Prosecutions (DPP) in their advice said the office shall not prosecute his client for the offences of conspiracy to murder as the medical report attached to the duplicate case file establishes that the cause of the deceased’s death were acute cardiac failure and hypertensive heart disease.

Adegboruwa said;

“In the course of time, Kari Ann’s lawyer discovered, upon further investigation, that the case file had been forwarded to the Lagos State Ministry of Justice a long ago and that a legal opinion had been issued by the Director of Public Prosecutions, to the extent that there was no prima facie case worthy of prosecution.

“In the Legal Advice dated March 5, , and signed by the DPP, it was stated as follows:

“The medical report attached to the duplicate case file establishes that the cause of the deceased’s death were acute cardiac failure and hypertensive heart disease.

“They should therefore be discharged and released if still in custody, as there is no case to be established against them from the facts presented in the duplicate case file.”
