US lab distances itself from toxicology test on Mohbad


The National Medical Services Laboratories in Pennsylvania, USA, have refuted the Lagos State Government’s claim about the toxicology test conducted to ascertain the cause of death for singer Ilerioluwa Aloba, also known as Mohbad.

This rebuttal from NMS Labs emerged amidst ongoing investigations into the circumstances surrounding the musician’s passing.

Before this development, public concern escalated following statements made by a pathologist in the Coroner’s Court on Wednesday, May 15.

The pathologist had initially stated that an autopsy couldn’t establish Mohbad’s cause of death due to the state of his remains.

Earlier reports indicated that in November 2023, O. Akinde, representing the state government, informed the Coroner’s Court about a crucial toxicology test conducted in the United States to determine the cause of Mohbad’s death.

Backing up this information, Gbenga Omotoso, the state Commissioner for Information and Strategy, mentioned during a live phone call with Ahmad Isah on the Brekete Family online program in February 2024 that the toxicology test was carried out at NMS Labs in Pennsylvania, USA.

Omotoso explained, “The matter is being handled by the state DNA and Forensic Centre, but they are doing skeletal services, and they have affiliate centres which are three.”

He further added, “So, if there is an emergency like this one that we have, they will not say they cannot handle it. So, there are three of them in the US and the one handling this particular one is the NMS in Pennsylvania, USA.”

Reports indicated that the test results arrived in Nigeria in April 2024 and were passed on to a pathologist for analysis.
