Mohbad Autopsy Results Set To Be Ready In Next 4 Weeks



In a riveting turn of events, Dr. Richard Somiari, Director of Lagos State DNA and Forensic Centre, took the stand on Wednesday, promising imminent closure to the mystery shrouding the untimely demise of beloved singer Ilerioluwa Aloba, better known as Mohbad. With the world eagerly awaiting answers, Somiari disclosed during a coroner’s inquest that autopsy results would be unveiled within the next three to four weeks.

The courtroom, already abuzz with speculation and intrigue, witnessed a dramatic exchange as defence counsel delved into questioning Somiari, probing for insights into the investigation. Mohbad’s passing on September 12, 2023, at the tender age of 27, left a void in the music industry and sparked a cascade of controversies that thrust the case into the public eye, compelling the Lagos State Government to launch a thorough inquiry.

Since the commencement of the inquest on October 13, 2023, at the Ikorodu Magistrates’ Court, authorities have meticulously combed through evidence, exploring various angles to ascertain the cause of Mohbad’s demise. Somiari’s testimony shed light on the exhaustive efforts undertaken, including considerations of poisoning as a potential factor in the tragic event.

Assuring the public of the integrity of the investigation, Somiari emphasized stringent security measures in place to safeguard vital samples and ensure the accuracy of results, even during their transit abroad. Meanwhile, eyewitness accounts, like that of Mr. Sadiq Ayobami, affectionately known as Spendy, provided poignant glimpses into Mohbad’s final hours, adding layers to the unfolding narrative.

However, amidst the legal proceedings, Mrs. Abiodun Kolawole, representing the African Women Lawyers Association, urged Mohbad’s family to seek resolution through proper channels, redirecting them from the tumult of social media to the sanctity of the courtroom. With tensions simmering and emotions running high, Magistrate T. A. Shotobi adjourned the case until April 15, underscoring the gravity of the matter and summoning all parties to reconvene.

As the world awaits the revelation of the autopsy findings, the saga of Mohbad’s demise continues to captivate hearts and minds, poised on the brink of closure while lingering in the realm of uncertainty.
