Perez Medcare Hospital, where the late Nigerian singer Mohbad, whose real name was Ilerioluwa Aloba, was taken before his death on September 12, 2023, has stated that he was brought in already deceased.
Contrary to some reports, their medical team attempted resuscitation but found no signs of life, leading them to categorize it as a “brought in dead” case.
There have been several conflicting reports since the singer’s death, including allegations being injected by a nurse.
According to Perez Hospital, the nurse in question was not affiliated with them.
A statement of the Lekki based hospital partly read: “We consider it pertinent to put on record that at about 04:30 p.m. on September 12, 2023, the lifeless body of Mr. Aloba was brought to our medical facility.
“Our medical team immediately sprang into action and after assessment, it was discovered that there was no sign of life, no central or peripheral pulse, no heartbeat, no recordable vital signs and his pupils were fixed and dilated.
“On attempting CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation), rigor mortis (stiffening of some parts of the body in relation to death) was observed and the persons who brought him to our facility were informed that it was a case of BID (Brought in dead).
“Upon enquiry about the circumstances leading to the emergency, our team was informed that the deceased was being treated at home by a nurse and that she administered injections on him.
“Our team thereafter advised that the body be taken to the nearest Government Hospital where he can be deposited in the morgue.”
Furthermore, Nigerians have expressed concerns about the circumstances of the singer’s death, with accusations aimed at his former label Marlian Music boss, Naira Marley and his pal Samson Balogun aka Sam Larry.
The Lagos State government, as well as the Lagos State Police Command, have initiated investigations into Mohbad’s demise, with a special 13-man team assigned to the case.
The police, who are expected to provide an interim report within two weeks of their investigation, confirmed that the singer’s body had been exhumed and an autopsy has been conducted but the final is not available yet.
Mohbad does at the age of 27, but has some hot songs in his name’s, including “Feel Good”, KPK (Ko Por Ke), and ‘Once Debe’ featuring Davido to mention few
