Perez Medcare Hospital, a Lagos-based medical centre, says Mohbad, the late singer, was brought into their facility dead.
Perez Medcare was reacting to a viral claim the singer had lost his life in their hospital.
Mohbad, 27, the street pop singer, died on September 12.
The circumstances surrounding his death have stirred up contentions on social media.
In a statement on Monday, the hospital said Mohbad was brought into its facility dead.
It said the singer showed “no sign of life, no central or peripheral pulse, no heartbeat, no recordable vital signs”.
In the statement, Perez Medcare said they never admitted Mohbad into the hospital but had “attempted to resuscitate” him.
“The attention of the management of Perez Medcare Hospital has been drawn to the misleading and false information being circulated in some social media platforms that Mr. Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba (AKA Mohbad) died in our medical facility,” the statement reads.
“We consider it pertinent to put on record that at about 04:30 pm on the 12th of September 2023, the lifeless body of Mr. Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba (AKA Mohbad) was brought to our medical facility and our medical team immediately sprang into action and after assessment, it was discovered that there was no sign of life, no central or peripheral pulse, no heartbeat, no recordable vital signs, and his pupils were fixed and dilated.
“On attempting CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation), rigor mortis (stiffening of some parts of the body in relation to death) was observed and the persons who brought him to our facility were informed that it was a case of BID (Brought in dead).
“Upon enquiry about the circumstances leading to the emergency, our team was informed that the deceased was being treated at home by a nurse and that she administered injections on him. Our team thereafter advised that the body be taken to the nearest Government Hospital where he could be deposited in the morgue.
“Let it be known that Mr. llerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba (AKA Mohbad) was not a patient of Perez Medcare Hospital and was never admitted at our hospital at any material time whatsoever.
“Also, the nurse who was said to be administering treatment on him at home is not a staff of Perez Medcare Hospital.”
On September 14, Joseph Aloba, Mohbad’s father, revealed he passed away after receiving an injection administered by an “auxiliary nurse”.
Iyabo Ojo, the Nigerian actress, later confirmed the arrest of the “auxiliary nurse” by the Lagos police.
