Spain on Monday repatriated to Nigeria the body of Nigerian first lady Stella Obasanjo, who died after undergoing treatment at a cosmetic surgery clinic in a Spanish resort town. The plane carrying the embalmed body of Obasanjo left from the southern city of Malaga to Nigeria's capital Abuja around 7pm (1700 GMT), said a spokesman of the Nigerian Embassy in Madrid. He added that Nigerian's ambassador in Madrid Kingsley Ebengi was aboard to accompany the body home. Obasanjo, the 59-year-old wife of President Olusegun Obasanjo, died Sunday in the nearby city of Marbella after falling ill while recovering from cosmetic surgery that she underwent last week. Earlier Monday, coroners performed an autopsy to investigate the possibility of medical malpractice, said Antonio Garcia de Galvez, director of the Malaga Institute of Forensic Medicine, where the autopsy was carried out. He declined to discuss the results of the autopsy, saying the data will be turned over to a judge investigating the case. He also would not say what kind of cosmetic procedure Obasanjo underwent.
