A person is said to have died of a ‘medical cause’ when there is a traceable and demonstrable medical pathology that is related to the death. The term ‘natural medical cause’ is not medical.

Oyewole said, ‘When one is said to have died of a ‘medical cause’ when there is a traceable and demonstrable medical pathology that is related to the death. The term ‘natural medical cause’ is not medical.

‘For instance, if the person had suffered a heart or cardiovascular event just before he or she died, that is a traceable medical cause.

‘If the person also had an underlying medical condition like an enlarged heart but an event triggered a shock to the system to have caused the death, it is also a medical cause.’ Oyewole explained.
