An autopsy conducted on the remains of the late singer, Ilerioluwa Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad would be ready in the next three or four weeks.

The Director of Lagos State DNA and Forensic Centre, Dr Richard Somiari, disclosed this while testifying during a coroner’s inquest into the death of the singer on Wednesday.

ThePressNG was cross-examined by defence counsel in the inquest.

But on September 21, the police exhumed Mohbad’s corpse for autopsy and are awaiting the results.

This was due to the controversy surrounding his death.

His death generated controversies across the country and beyond, prompting Lagos State Government to direct a coroner’s inquest into the death.

Somiari told the Coroner, Magistrate Adedayo Shotobi: “We expected to get the first set of autopsy results in three to four weeks and re-confirm to authenticate the cause of the death.

“We searched for multiple possibilities, to check if poison was involved in the death of Mohbad since no actual cause was mentioned.”

The forensic expert assured the public of adequate security and monitoring of samples for the autopsy.

“We have a place where items are stored for safety and security of results. There is a procedure for monitoring samples moved abroad,” he said.
