The Lagos State Commissioner of Police Adegoke Fayoade, on Wednesday, said the command was yet to receive the much awaited toxicology report that was conducted on popular singer, Ilerioluwa Alboa also known as MohBad, three months after the singer’s death.

MohBad, 27, died on September 12, 2023, under a controversial circumstance and was buried the next day.

The nurse who administer a vaccine on him was arrested after she was found to be unlicensed.

Following public outcry, the police set up a panel to probe his death. His corpse was exhumed and some tests were carried out.

Fielding questions from Crime Reporters at the Command Headquarters during parade of suspects on Wednesday, the Lagos State Police boss said the command was still awaiting the report.

He blamed the delay on the destruction of a state-of-the art laboratory that was built by the state government during the EndSARS protest.

According to him, the police launched a homicide investigation and the singer’s corpse was exhumed for autopsy to gather crucial evidence and determine the cause of his untimely passing.

“You will recall that some years back, the Lagos State government built a state of the art laboratory, however quite unfortunately, sane laboratory what millions of naira was destroyed by urchins during the EndSars protest. If that laboratory was not destroyed we wouldn’t have had cause to send the sample from the deceased to the US for toxicology examination.

“It is sad to say that we are yet to receive the toxicology report. We are still awaiting the arrival of the report from the US. We will make public the outcome when we receive it” he added.

During the EndSARS riot of 2020, hoodlums destroyed multi-billion naira properties in Lagos, including the DNA and Forensic Center built by the administration of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode.
Former President Muhammadu Buhari had commissioned the project in Ikeja, the state capital, at the time.
The center, an ISO 17025:2017 accredited forensic DNA center, was set up to enhance public safety and assist with criminal and civil investigations.
Before the attack, the center offered Forensic Serology, Relationship DNA Analysis, Forensic DNA Analysis and Crime Scene Processing.
