The Lagos State Police Command has announced that they are still awaiting the official release of the autopsy report for the late musician Ilerioluwa Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad. Despite the completion of the autopsy two months ago, the report has not been formally handed over to the police.
Mohbad’s death on September 12 triggered a nationwide outcry, leading the police to launch an investigation. In September, the Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, had stated that the autopsy was concluded, but they were awaiting the results.
In October, Commissioner of Police Idowu Owohunwa identified prime suspects connected to Mohbad’s death. He disclosed that the singer had experienced adverse reactions after being injected three times by a nurse named Feyisayo Ogedemgbe on the fateful day.
Several suspects were subsequently charged, and last Friday, singer Naira Marley and Balogun Samson were released on bail after meeting the bail conditions. They had been arrested in connection with the investigation following online videos depicting assault against Mohbad.
Responding to inquiries about the release of the autopsy report on Monday, Hundeyin clarified that the command had not yet officially received the report. He emphasized the importance of official communication rather than relying on rumors.
Meanwhile, artist Bella Shmurda took to social media to appeal for the swift release of Mohbad’s remains, expressing concern over the prolonged delay in conducting a dignified funeral. Bella urged the police to expedite the process and promptly disclose the autopsy results.
Hundeyin further noted that only the family’s lawyer could request the pathologists to release the autopsy result officially, or it would be independently provided to the police when ready. The situation has left many, including the artist community, seeking clarity on the progress of the investigation and the release of crucial information surrounding Mohbad’s untimely demise.
