The recent autopsy on the late singer Ilerioluwa Aloba, known as Mohbad, has pointed to a drug reaction as a possible cause of his death. Conducted at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, the tests suggest that a fatal anaphylactic shock or drug reaction may have been involved.

The toxicology report revealed traces of Diphenhydramine, an antihistamine, in Mohbad’s system. This drug, commonly used to treat allergies and other conditions, was found in non-lethal concentrations. Despite this, the autopsy found no significant physical cause of death, apart from an injury on Mohbad’s right forearm and moderate to severe decomposition of his body.

The decomposition was notable because Mohbad was exhumed eight days after burial, following an order for exhumation. The autopsy highlighted that timely blood sampling is crucial to determine fatal anaphylactic shock, which was not possible due to the delayed exhumation.

The report underscores the importance of prompt medical examinations in sudden deaths. It noted that, given the absence of significant post-mortem and toxicology findings, a drug reaction remains a plausible explanation for Mohbad’s untimely demise.

Mohbad, a 27-year-old artist formerly signed to Marlian Music, died on September 12, 2023, sparking widespread speculation and controversy. In response, the Lagos State Police Command formed a special investigation team to probe the circumstances of his death.

The investigation led to the arrests of several individuals, including Naira Marley and Sam Larry, as authorities continue to seek clarity on the events leading to Mohbad’s tragic passing.
