Autopsy for Mohbad’s death failed to determine cause – Pathologist reveals


The post-mortem examination of the late Nigerian singer Ilerioluwa Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad, has yielded no definitive cause of death, as reported during a recent press briefing in Lagos State.

Wahab Shittu, a distinguished Senior Advocate of Nigeria, shared that the examination was hindered by significant decomposition, preventing a clear determination of what led to Mohbad’s passing.

According to Shittu, the forensic expert conducting the autopsy explained that due to the advanced decomposition of the body at the time of examination, pinpointing the cause of death was not possible.

This uncertainty leaves the circumstances surrounding Mohbad’s death under suspicion and without a specific explanation.

Additionally, the pathologist raised the possibility of medications administered before Mohbad’s death potentially playing a role.

However, definitive confirmation of whether these medications directly contributed to his passing remains elusive.

As a result, the inquest into Mohbad’s death has been postponed until June 11th.

This delay aims to allow for further questioning and investigation to glean more insights from the forensic expert regarding the circumstances surrounding the acclaimed singer’s untimely demise.

Mohbad’s autopsy commenced eight months ago

The Lagos Police Command verified the exhumation of Mohbad’s body for post-mortem analysis on September 21, 2023, due to the suspicious nature of his passing.

Benjamin Hundeyin, the spokesperson for the Lagos Police, announced this through his official communication channels.

Additionally, Hundeyin reported the detention of the nurse implicated in delivering the lethal injection to the late musician.

In the early stages of the probe, the police constituted a 19-member panel to carry out a thorough investigation, which included tasks like exhumation, autopsy, inspection of the scene, medical evaluations, and gathering statements from suspects and witnesses.

The panel was charged with concluding their detailed investigation within a fortnight.


Mohbad’s death on September 12, 2023, in Lagos, ignited widespread controversy, with many calling for a thorough investigation into the events leading to his untimely demise.

His former managers, Naira Marley and Sam Larry, were taken into custody concerning his death, amid accusations of harassment and more.

On September 19, 2023, the nurse who had given him medications prior to his death, was arrested by the Lagos State Police Command upon discovery that she lacked proper medical licensing.
