JOSHUA PEPPLE Undergoes AutopsyLatest reports yesterday revealed that plans are underway for the remains of the late Poland-based player Joshua Pepple, who slumped and died during a league game last weekend, to undergo an autopsy to determine the cause of death.

Pepple’s friend and colleague, Charles Okere, told National Mirror yesterday that he had contacted the prosecutor in charge of the remains, who assured him the autopsy would be carried out as soon as possible.

“I have also told the family about this latest development and the father, Evangelist Edward Pepple, whom I have also given all the contact information,” Okere added.

Okere said the Nigerian Ambassador to Poland would visit the prosecutor and the officials of the club of late Pepple for talks on the matter.

It is however not clear at press time yesterday if the late player would be flown back to Nigeria for burial, although Evangelist Pepple had declared his wish to have his son buried at home.

“I’m making arrangement to fly to Poland to meet with the club and the Nigerian embassy with a view to flying his remains back,” elder Pepple said yesteday.

“I have spoken to the ambassador and Mr. Okere, but I am still waiting on the club.”

Meanwhile, Okere has said information on the player’s demise has been passed on to Nigerians based in Poland.
