Why blood stains were seen around Mohbad’s burial site – Doctor

As controversy continues to ravage the death of popular Nigerian singer, MohBad, an Internet celebrity doctor, Chinonso Egemba popularly known as Aproko doctor has revealed reason behind the blood stain seen at the burial site of the late singer.

Recall that fresh blood was sighted at the gravesite of late singer after his body was exhumed on Thursday.

Eyewitnesses at the gravesite reported seeing fresh blood and this has caused a stir online.

While attempting to answer the curiosity of Nigerians regarding the stain, doctor Chinonso Egemba gave an explanation for the development. 

According to him, “Your blood has a red colour because of a compound called haemoglobin. That’s what carries oxygen through your body.

“When blood is exposed to air, the cells that carry these haemoglobin die, and the haemoglobin becomes exposed to air abs starts to change colour to a darker one.

“This dark colour is because the haemoglobin is being changed to another compound called methemoglobin.

“Normally, when people die, they die with all the blood in their system but it doesn’t move because circulation has stopped, but it’s still there. Let’s not forget.

“Now, during embalming, this blood is usually replaced with another fluid. The question is, “Was he embalmed?”

“Even at that, you can’t get all the blood out! Some will still be left.

“We all want to know why it’s still red, right? There is one possible reason, in a closed compartment, there is very little air underground, so it’s possible that the haemoglobin is not exposed enough to change colour to the darker one.

“As to why it’s that much, we don’t have access to the body so we don’t know what other injuries we’re inflicted on his body, we remember his neck was in an unnatural position to fit in the coffin, it is possible that must have broken his vessels to cause some blood still in the system to leak out.

“All we can do is speculate. We will not be more knowledgeable than people with the body physically and examining it.”
