The Lagos State Police Command said it has not received the autopsy report of the late musician, Ilerioluwa Aloba, also known as Mohbad, which was completed two months ago.
It is already two months since the late singer, Mohbad’s body was exhumed and an autopsy conducted to determine the cause of the singer’s death.
After Mohbad’s murder on September 12 caused controversy both within and outside of Nigeria, the police formed an investigation team to find out the circumstances surrounding the musician’s death.
In September, Benjamin Hundeyin, the public relations officer for the state police, tweeted that an “autopsy has been concluded” and the authorities were “awaiting result.”
In October, Mohbad’s murder was linked to a number of main suspects, including then Commissioner of Police, Idowu Owohunwa, who said Mohbad had experienced vomiting and goose bumps following three injections from nurse Feyisayo Ogedemgbe on September 12, 2023.
Following it, charges were brought against a few of the suspects.
However, last Friday, the state Police Command freed singers Azeez Fashola, aka Naira Marley, and Balogun Samson, aka, Sam Larry, after they fulfilled their bail requirements.
With the release of footage online showing the late singer being assaulted, the duo were taken into custody as part of an inquiry into Mohbad’s death.
In response to a question regarding the release of Mohbad’s autopsy report, Hundeyin said the report had not yet been officially received by the command.
Hundeyin said, “The autopsy report has not been given to us. Some people have been carrying rumours that it’s ready. It’s one thing for it to be ready, it’s another thing for it to be given to us officially – that we would receive and sign a copy that we have received it. So, we don’t work with rumours, we work with facts.”
