The Lagos State Police Command has confirmed that the late singer Mohbad’s autopsy report, which sparked outrage, has not been formally submitted to them.
It has been two months since the late Mohbad’s body was exhumed for autopsy as of Tuesday, November 21, 2023.
Mohbad, who was originally signed to Naira Marley’s record label, died in questionable circumstances on September 12, 2023.
The Lagos state government has ordered a coroner’s investigation into the 27-year-old singer’s death.
As the autopsy investigation continues, unanswered questions highlight the need for answers about the talented singer’s death.
Despite the swirling rumours, the police emphasise their commitment to depend on confirmed facts rather than rumours.
Updating on the autopsy, the state police public relations officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, confirmed to The Punch newspaper on Monday, November 20, that the command had not officially received the report.
“The autopsy report has not been given to us. Some people have been carrying rumours that it’s ready. It’s one thing for it to be ready, it’s another thing for it to be given to us officially – that we would receive and sign a copy that we have received it. So, we don’t work with rumours, we work with facts.”
Hundeyin added that only the singer’s family lawyer can request the release of the autopsy result from the pathologists. Otherwise, it will be provided independently to the police once it’s ready.
This is coming after Joseph Aloba, the father of the late singer, Mohbad, warned that nobody should collect his son’s body for burial without his approval.
