Court grant Mohbad’s family to perform second autopsy

The magistrate court sitting in Ikorodu, Lagos state has granted the family of the late singer Mohbad request to conduct a second autopsy.

It would be recalled  that the singer’s family had expressed dissatisfaction with the initial autopsy results, which were deemed inconclusive.

The 27-year-old singer died under controversial circumstances on September 12, 2023, and was immediately buried the following day.

However, after several calls from the public to ascertain the cause of his death, his body was exhumed on September 21, 2023, for an autopsy by the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, LASUTH.

His family, however, rejected the result of the autopsy over its failure to reveal the cause of death. And she pleaded with the coroner’s inquest’s presiding magistrate to ensure that an independent toxicology report is submitted to the court before the final report is submitted to the authorities.

However, during a hearing on Wednesday, June 26, 2024, Ikorodu magistrate court granted Mohad’s family and their legal representatives permission for a second autopsy.
