Richard Somiari, the Director of Lagos State DNA and Forensic Centre, stated on Wednesday, March 20 that the autopsy results for late singer Ilerioluwa Aloba, also known as Mohbad, will be available within the next three to four weeks.

Somiari provided this assurance while testifying in a coroner’s inquest regarding the singer’s death. The witness faced questioning from the defense counsel during the inquiry.

Mohbad passed away on September 12, 2023, and was laid to rest the following day at the age of 27. His death sparked controversies, leading the Lagos State Government to initiate a coroner’s inquest, which commenced on October 13, 2023, at the Ikorodu Magistrates’ Court.

Mr Somiari told the Coroner, Magistrate Adedayo Shotobi: “We expected to get the first set of autopsy results in three to four weeks and re-confirm to authenticate the cause of the death.

“We searched for multiple possibilities, to check if poison was involved in the death of Mohbad since no actual cause was mentioned.”

The forensic expert assured the public of adequate security and monitoring of samples for the autopsy.

“We have a place where items are stored for safety and security of results. There is a procedure for monitoring samples moved abroad,” he said.

Also testifying, Sadiq Ayobami, popularly called Spendy, said that he saw the deceased last a day before his death.

He said that both of them attended a concert at Ikorodu and returned to his house after which he left before the singer’s death.

The Coroner adjourned the case to 15 April and directed all parties in the inquest to be present on that day.
