Mohbad: Autopsy Reveals Drug Reaction as Possible Cause of Late Singer’s Death

An autopsy conducted on the body of Ilerioluwa Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad, at Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH) has left the cause of his death uncertain.

Samples were taken from Mohbad's gastric content, blood, bone marrow, liver, kidney, and lung for toxicology tests. The findings revealed an injury on his right forearm and moderate to severe decomposition of his body, which was exhumed eight days after burial.

The toxicology report detected Diphenhydramine, an anti-histamine commonly used to treat allergies, colds, stomach issues, and anxiety. However, the concentration found was not within a fatal range.

The autopsy report noted, "No significant gross finding could be attributed to the singer’s death," and the toxicology findings were largely unremarkable. This means no clear evidence was found to pinpoint a specific cause of death, leaving medical experts to consider the possibility of a fatal anaphylactic reaction, despite the absence of significant toxicological evidence.

The report emphasized the complications arising from the immediate burial and lack of an initial autopsy. "In determining fatal anaphylactic shock, blood samples need to be taken as quickly as possible," the report stated. The delay in exhuming the body and the subsequent decomposition further hindered the investigation.

The findings underscore the difficulties in ascertaining the cause of death after burial without an initial autopsy, leading to a lingering uncertainty surrounding the circumstances of Mohbad's demise.
