Mohbad: Autopsy, while, inconclusive, reveals possible cause of death

The autopsy conducted on the late singer Ilerioluwa Aloba, professionally known as Mohbad, has revealed the potential cause of his death, even though it is said to be inconclusive.

This comes nearly four weeks after a forensic scientist and pathologist at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH), Sunday Osiyemi, informed coroner Adedayo Shotobi, a magistrate, that the autopsy had not determined the cause of the celebrity’s death.

In its Friday report, the Cable newspaper said the autopsy and toxicology tests conducted at Lagos State University Teaching Hospital suggested that a fatal anaphylactic shock or drug reaction could have been the cause of Mohbad’s death.

Anaphylactic shock is a severe and potentially life-threatening allergic reaction. It’s caused by the immune system releasing chemicals that can lead to shock, such as a sudden drop in blood pressure and narrowed airways that make it hard to breathe.

The report also said the hospital retrieved samples of Mohbad’s gastric content, blood, bone marrow, liver, kidney, and lung for toxicology testing.

The anatomical and pathological findings also revealed that Mohbad had an injury on his right forearm, and his body was exhumed with moderate to severe decomposition eight days after his burial.

The autopsy, according to the paper, showed no significant gross findings that could be attributed to the singer’s death.

Additionally, the report indicated that toxicology results revealed the presence of Diphenhydramine, an antihistamine.

Antihistamines are medications used to treat symptoms of allergies, stomach issues, colds, and anxiety, among other conditions.

The autopsy report concluded that the concentration of the drug found in the singer’s system was not fatal or harmful enough to cause his death.

The report added that the cause of Mohbad’s death could not be determined.
