US Coroner conducts toxicology test on Mohbad

In the Lagos Coroner Court session at Ikorodu on Wednesday, it was disclosed that the critical phase of the autopsy for the late singer Ilerioluwa Aloba, also known as Mohbad, is underway in the United States. State Counsel Oluwaseun Akinde informed Magistrate Adetayo Shotobi that the external body autopsy has been completed, while the internal body’s toxicology test is being conducted in the US.

This revelation came after various counsels, including those representing the deceased’s father and TNKay Music Worldwide, sought clarification. Akinde explained that the decision to conduct the toxicology test in the US was influenced by the diverse substances associated with the deceased and the desire to avoid controversy over the autopsy report.

He emphasized that the global attention to the case and the potential involvement of substances made this choice necessary, ensuring a comprehensive and internationally recognized examination. The coroner inquired about the decision to go abroad for toxicology, questioning the absence of such facilities in Nigeria.

Akinde clarified that Lagos State opted for the US to maintain the integrity of the investigation and prevent any disputes over the final autopsy report, especially considering the worldwide significance of the case. Additionally, he emphasized the futility of presenting an incomplete report by inviting Prof. Soyemi, the local pathologist, to testify.
