Update on DHL truck that killed LASU final year student

A few days ago, I posted the issue of a DHL truck that crushed Stanley, a final year student of LASU to death and the company is denying the truck. Read the story here if you missed it.

Below is the latest report I received this morning on the issue and it is my responsibility to keep TLBiers updated.
Up till now, DHL and Excel  contract Logistics  Nig. Ltd are still dilly dally. They sent SCIB insurance brokers and Lead-way  insurance company to us who has not been forthcoming after series of minutes at the law firm of the lawyer handling the case, L.O. Ozimende & Co at No.48, Allen Avenue, Ikeja, Lagos. We have submitted all the documents they requested for including that of the late Stanislus's son. and no response from them yet. Up till now  DHL and EXCELL LOGISTICS have not shown up.
We have done the autopsy and took the corpse home -Iviegbepui-Agenebode for burial on Friday 27/2/15 with so many of the student friends who shown support.
The criminal case is till in court at the OJO MAGISTRATE court.The DHL Truck is still in police custody at the order of the court and the driver in prison awaiting trial.
I attach here the charge sheet and petition sent to Panti already approved by the Deputy commissioner of police. The case comes up gain at the magistrate court next week 18/3/15. In the charge sheet the police surreptitiously omitted the fact that the truck that killed the deceased belonged to DHL which our lawyer pointed out in the court and was noted by the presiding magistrate.
The DHL and Excel contract logistics Nig Ltd have failed, refused and neglected to take responsibility in this case by paying the burial expenses and/or compensation to the deceased family to take care of the 7 months old son.
