Mohbad’s family rejects toxicology result

By Christopher Oji

After weeks of keeping mum over the inconclusive toxicology report released by a pathologist, the family of the late Nigerian singer, Ilerioluwa Aloba popularly known as Mohbad, has rejected the result, calling on the Lagos State government to run a new test and ensure transparency.

The Alobas also called on the Inspector General of Police, Kayode Egbetokun, to assist in investigating the cause of their son’s death and bring his killers to book.

Solicitors to the family Wahab Shittu and Taiwo Odumosu made this known yesterday during a virtual press conference, saying the family’s position followed a report on the denial of a US laboratory to have conducted a poison test on the late singer, as against the Lagos State government’s claims that the test was conducted there.

“We, the legal representatives of the Aloba family, express our profound dissatisfaction and disappointment with the recent announcement regarding the toxicology test results of the late Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba, which have been declared ‘inconclusive’ by the pathologist,” the solicitors said.

“This outcome is entirely unacceptable to us and the Aloba family and raises serious concerns about the integrity and thoroughness of the investigation by the police and the medical team into the untimely death of their beloved son, brother, and friend. The Aloba family and, indeed, the whole world demand to know where the toxicology test was carried out, as this has impugned its integrity.”

The legal team queried how the letterhead and the address of the National Medical Services Laboratories in the US state of Pennsylvania appeared on the toxicology test report if the test was not truly carried out in the Untied States.
