The autopsy conducted on the body of late singer Mohbad failed to ascertain the cause of his death.


Wahab Shittu, a senior advocate of Nigeria (SAN), gave an update on the autopsy result while addressing journalists at the coroner’s inquest held in Lagos on Wednesday.

Shittu said the pathologist in charge of the autopsy told the coroner that the deceased’s body had decomposed by the time the test was conducted.

“In summary, he is saying the cause of death cannot be ascertained. When you say the cause of death cannot be ascertained, it means it is suspicious, it is not clear. No particular reason,” the SAN said.


According to Shittu, the pathologist added that Mohbad may have died as a result of a reaction to certain drugs administered to him.

Born Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba, Mohbad died under mysterious circumstances on September 12 and was buried the next day.

On September 21, the body of the artiste was exhumed. An autopsy was carried out that same day after which the police announced that they were awaiting the results.


The toxicology test was conducted in the United States.

Mohbad’s demise has continued to elicit discussions on social media, including speculation about the paternity of Liam.

Joseph Aloba, Mohbad’s father, earlier vowed that Mohbad would not be reburied until a DNA test was conducted on Liam.

He also called on the police to probe Omowunmi, Mohbad’s wife, to unravel the cause of the singer’s death.


Wunmi agreed to the DNA test but requested it be conducted at three hospitals.

She also alleged that Aloba connived with some people to bully her and Liam on social media.

A magistrate court in Ikorodu, Lagos recently ordered that Wunmi be notified of a pending DNA test application by substituted means.

In March, Omowunmi alleged that her father-in-law wants Mohbad’s properties and sees his grandson as a “threat and competitor”.


She also claimed Aloba is working with the people who bullied her husband till his death.
