The Lagos State Government has received the toxicology test results to ascertain the cause of death of the late music star, Ilerioluwa Aloba, known as Mohbad. The government stated that the results have been forwarded to the police for further action.

Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr. Gbenga Omotoso, confirmed the receipt of the test results. Richard Somiari, the Director of Lagos State DNA and Forensic Centre, had earlier stated on March 20 that the toxicology results would be ready within three to four weeks.

Somiari, while testifying during a coroner’s inquest into the death of the singer said, “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,” he said.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.

Mohbad passed away at the age of 27 on September 12, 2023, sparking controversies on social media regarding the circumstances of his death. As a former signee of Marlian Music, owned by Naira Marley, Mohbad parted ways with the label in February 2022. On September 18, 2023, the Lagos State Police Command established a 13-man special investigation team to look into the singer’s death.

Following his demise, Naira Marley and controversial Lagos socialite, Balogun Eletu, also known as Sam Larry, were arrested, along with others. They were later released on bail pending further investigation. Mohbad’s body was exhumed for autopsy on September 21, 2023.
