Mohbad: Autopsy shows potential cause of singer’s death

The autopsy of the late singer Ilerioluwa Aloba, aka Mohbad, revealed the possible cause of death.

The study stated that the cause of death could not be determined, however it did mention the likelihood of medication responses based on any major post-mortem and toxicology findings.

According to the postmortem results from the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH), samples of Mohbad’s gastric content, blood, bone marrow, liver, kidney, and lung were collected for a toxicology test.

According to TheCable, anatomical and pathological findings revealed that Mohbad sustained an injury to his right forearm, and his body was excavated with moderate to severe decomposition.

The autopsy also revealed that “no significant gross finding” could be linked to the singer’s death.

The toxicology report “revealed the positive finding of diphenhydramine, an anti-histamine; however, this concentration was not in a fatal or lethal range” .

According to the report, antihistamines are medications used to alleviate allergy symptoms. They are also used to treat a wide range of other illnesses, including gastrointestinal issues, colds, and anxiety.

“It is noteworthy that the body neither had an autopsy nor embalmed prior to interment on the second day,” according to the report.

The body was neither autopsied or embalmed before being interred on the second day, according to the report.

“Following the Order for Exhumation, the body was unearthed on September 21, 2023, eight days after burial.

“The autopsy revealed moderate to substantial deterioration of the organs. Aside from a superficial injury on the right forearm, no substantial gross findings could be linked to death.

“Against this backdrop, samples were collected for toxicology. This is to assess whether there was an allergic reaction, substance addiction, overdosage, or normal household poisoning.

Toxicology revealed positive findings of Diphenhydramine, an anti-histamine; however, this concentration was not in a fatal or lethal range. The other analytics were unremarkable.

“In determining fatal anaphylactic shock, blood sample needs to be taken as quickly as possible.

“Unfortunately, this was prevented or made impossible by the burial of the deceased on the second day. In the light of the foregoing, cause of death could not be ascertained.

“However, the possibility of a fatal anaphylactic shock (drug reaction) could be considered in view of the absence of any significant post-mortem and toxicology findings.
