The Lagos Coroner Court sitting at Ita-Elewa, Ikorodu, on Wednesday, said the most crucial aspect of an autopsy to determine the cause of death of late singer, Ilerioluwa Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad, is being conducted in the United States of America (USA).

The state counsel, O. Akinde, told the Coroner Magistrate, Adetayo Shotobi, that the autopsy into the external body of the deceased had been completed.

Akinde made this known following the insistence of other counsel to the father of the deceased, David Fadimu, that of TNKay Music Worldwide, David Nawoola, and representative of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) Ikorodu, O.S.A. Aranmolaran.

“The toxicology test, which has to do with the internal body, is being done in the US,” he said.

MohBad died on September 12, 2023, and was buried in the Ikorodu area of Lagos, the next day.

Following the outcry which trailed his death, the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Kayode Egbetokun, ordered a forensic Investigation to unravel the cause of the death.

Based on the IGP’s directive, the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Idowu Owohunwa, placed a 10-man team, including a pathologist to exhume his corpse and investigate Mohbad’s death.

However, before his corpse was exhumed, there were issues on paternity test of Mohbad’s son.

This was triggered by the controversial comment of a social media commentator known as the VeryDarkMan.

Amid the raging storm, Omawunmi, widow of the late singer, broke her silence on the controversial death of her husband.

In a chat which was posted by ace Nollywood actress, Iyabo Ojo, the widow stated that she would rather not talk till the inquest performed on her late husband was complete.

The post read, “Hello ma. I’ve decided not to speak on anything until the 7th of November which is the coroner’s inquest because I do not want any side distraction, all I want is justice for my husband which I believe the Nigerian government are working on, after everything I’ll either grant an interview or tell my own story before the whole world, and also DNA is definitely a must!!!”

On Tuesday, the late singer’s mother revealed that the artiste’s father refused to bury him after police handed the corpse over to him.

Few days ago, MohBad’s father released a video saying his son would not be buried until a DNA test is conducted to determine if the child the singer left behind is truly his.
