Lagos Govt’s Claim on Mohbad’s Autopsy Report Disputed by US Laboratory

Police Announces Date to Give Update on Mohbad's Death

New developments have emerged in the investigation into the death of singer Ilerioluwa Aloba, aka Mohbad, as the National Medical Services Laboratories in Pennsylvania (NMS Labs), United States (US), has denied conducting a toxicology test on the deceased.

This denial contradicts the Lagos State Government’s earlier claim that Mohbad’s body was sent to the US facility to determine the cause of death.

In response to inquiries, NMS Labs stated that they had no record of Mohbad’s case, with Client Services Associate Esther Dede citing compliance with HIPAA privacy regulations.

However, the Lagos State Commissioner for Information, Gbenga Omotoso has reacted to the denial, stating that the laboratory was identified by the state DNA and Forensic Centre as one of their affiliate facilities.

Recall that the development came after Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu announced in December 2023 that a toxicology test was sent abroad due to the lack of facilities in Nigeria, following the destruction of the state’s forensic laboratory during the #EndSARS protest in 2020.

Sanwo-Olu had stated that the investigation was ongoing, with suspects in detention awaiting the test results.

The conflicting accounts have raised questions about the investigation’s progress and the accuracy of information provided by the Lagos State Government.

As the case continues, clarity on the circumstances surrounding Mohbad’s death remains elusive.
