In response to the controversy surrounding Mohbad’s death, the Lagos State Police Command claims not to have received the official autopsy report.
The late Mohbad’s body was unearthed for an autopsy on Tuesday, November 21, 2023; that was two months ago.
The controversial passing of Mohbad, who had previously been signed to Naira Marley’s record label, occurred on Tuesday, September 12, 2023.
As directed by the Lagos state government, a coroner looked into the death of the 27-year-old singer.
The police emphasize that they are dedicated to relying solely on correct information, even in the face of spreading rumors. An update on the autopsy was given by state police public relations officer Benjamin Hundeyin.
“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.”
Only the singer’s family attorney may ask the pathologists to divulge the autopsy results, according to Hundeyin. If not, when it’s ready, the police will receive it on their own.
This comes after the late musician Mohbad’s father, Joseph Aloba, issued a warning to anyone who could try to take his son’s remains for burial without his consent.
