Lagos official reveals when Mohbad’s autopsy result would be ready


Lagos official reveals when Mohbad

Dr Richard Somiari, Director of Lagos State DNA and Forensic Centre, said that the results of an autopsy conducted on deceased singer Ilerioluwa Aloba, a.k.a Mohbad, would be ready in the next three weeks or four weeks. 

 

Somiari disclosed this on Wednesday, March 20, while testifying during a coroner’s inquest into the death of the singer.

 

The witness was cross-examined by the defence counsel in the inquest.

 

Recall that the musician died on September 12, 2023, at the age of 27 years. 

 

His death generated controversies, prompting Lagos State Government to direct a coroner’s inquest into the death. 

 

The inquest began on October 13, 2023. 

 

During the last inquest hearing on March 20, Somiari told the Coroner, Magistrate Adedayo Shotobi: “We expected to get the first set of autopsy results in three to four weeks and re-confirm to authenticate the cause of the death. 

 

“We searched for multiple possibilities, to check if poison was involved in the death of Mohbad since no actual cause was mentioned.” 

 

The forensic expert assured the public of adequate security and monitoring of samples for the autopsy. 

 

“We have a place where items are stored for safety and security of results. There is a procedure for monitoring samples moved abroad,” he said.
