The Lagos State Judiciary is set to commence a coroner’s inquest on the late singer, Ilerioluwa Aloba, known as Mohbad, beginning on September 29.
This inquest aims to determine the cause of his death. A coroner’s inquest is an investigation into the circumstances and cause of an individual’s death, typically conducted by a coroner to establish the identity of the deceased, the time and place of death, and the manner in which it occurred. Coroners are responsible for examining cases of sudden, violent, or unusual deaths.
The Chief Coroner of Lagos State, Mojisola Dada, officially announced the inquest through a letter dated September 26. The letter was addressed to Falana and Falana Chambers, in response to a request from Femi Falana (SAN), a rights activist and the owner of the chambers. Magistrate T. A. Shotobi will preside over the inquest, scheduled to take place at 12:00 p.m. in Court Three, Candide-Johnson Courthouse, Ita-Elewa, Ikorodu, Lagos.
Femi Falana had initially requested the coroner’s inquest on September 18, following the controversial death of Mohbad on September 12 and his subsequent burial. This request was submitted to the chief coroner of the High Court of Lagos State, Ikeja.
The announcement of the inquest follows a statement from The Perez Medcare Hospital in Lagos, where Mohbad was reportedly brought, already lifeless, on September 12 at approximately 4:30 p.m.
