An autopsy carried out on the body of late singer, Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba, aka MohBad, at Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH), has revealed findings suggesting the possible cause of his death.

The autopsy report suggests a drug reaction as the potential cause of death.

The report, obtained from the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, Ikeja, by TheCable reveals that various bodily samples were collected for toxicology testing, and while an injury on his right forearm was noted, no direct cause of death could be determined due to decomposition

In the medical report, samples of the gastric content, blood, bone marrow, liver, kidney, and lung of the late singer were retrieved for a toxicology test.

The anatomical and pathological examinations disclosed that the late singer sustained an injury to his right forearm, and his body was exhumed with moderate to severe decomposition.

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

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

Antihistamines are medicines used to treat symptoms of allergies. They are commonly used to treat a variety of other conditions such as stomach problems, colds, and anxiety, among others.

The medical report reads, “Aloba Promise Oladimeji Ilerioluwa, a 26-year-old male reportedly died after being injected by one supposed female Nurse on 12/9/2023.

“The deceased allegedly sustained an injury on the back of the right forearm following which the Nurse was invited to treat him. Shortly after the injection, it was alleged that the deceased went into convulsive episode and was rushed to the hospital where he was pronounced lifeless same day.

“It is noteworthy that the body neither had an autopsy not embalmed prior to interment on the second day. Following the Order for Exhumation, the body was exhumed on 21/09/2023 (8 days after the burial).

“Autopsy revealed moderate to marked decomposition of organs. Apart from the superficial injury on the right forearm, no significant gross finding could be attributed to death.

“Against this background, samples were taken for toxicology. This is to determine if there was any anaphylactic reaction, substances of abuse, over dosage or common household poisoning.

“Toxicology revealed positive finding 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.

“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.”
