Mohbad’s family gets permission to conduct second autopsy

The family of late singer Ilerioluwa Aloba aka Mohbad has been granted permission to conduct a second autopsy on the body of the deceased.

The order was issued by the Ikorodu Magistrate’s Court in Lagos State.

Recall that the singer’s family had expressed dissatisfaction with the initial autopsy results, which were deemed inconclusive.

The 27-year-old singer died under controversial circumstances on September 12, 2023, and was buried the following day.

Following the calls from Nigerians to ascertain the cause of his death, his body was exhumed on September 21, 2023, for an autopsy by the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, LASUTH.

His family, however, rejected the result of the autopsy over its failure to reveal the cause of death. And she pleaded with the coroner’s inquest’s presiding magistrate to ensure that an independent toxicology report is submitted to the court before the final report is submitted to the authorities.

However, during a hearing on Wednesday, June 26, 2024, Ikorodu magistrate court granted Mohad’s family and their legal representatives permission for a second autopsy.
