The Cause of Mohbad's death could not be ascertained because the autopsy was conducted after his body had decomposed - Pathologist
Prof. Sunday Soyemi, a Pathologist at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH), informed a Coroner sitting at the Magistrates’ Court, Ikorodu that the reason for singer Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba's, aka Mohbad, death was marked as "uncertain" due to the advanced decomposition of his body during the autopsy. 

The expert conveyed to Magistrate Adedayo Shotobi that despite thorough attempts, the extreme level of decomposition made it impossible to reach a definite conclusion through the autopsy. 
He explained how the state of decomposition raised several unanswered questions about the circumstances of Mohbad's death. 

The autopsy, carried out at LASUTH, included the documentation of photographs, according to Prof. Soyemi. 

He highlighted that Mohbad's body was not embalmed and had already begun decomposing prior to the autopsy, which was delayed for approximately 21 days. 

The results indicated the presence of piritin, caffeine, paracetamol, and a superficial injury on Mohbad's left hand. The cause of Mohbad's death remained inconclusive. 

Prof. Soyemi refuted claims that Mohbad's neck was bent and still bleeding post-death. 

He detailed the challenges faced while exhuming Mohbad's body from the grave, mentioning the heavy stones that obstructed the process. 

Wahab Shittu (SAN), representing Mohbad's family, stated after the hearing, "The Pathologist suggested that the body should have been exhumed within 12 hours of burial to prevent decomposition. Thus, the uncertainty about the cause of death raises suspicion since no specific reason is evident." 
The lawyer addressed certain medications administered to Mohbad before his death, possibly contributing to complications that hindered determining the cause of death. 

Owoseni Ibrahim, a childhood friend of Mohbad, testified as another witness, depicting Mohbad as a composed, intelligent, and diligent individual. "Whenever I interacted with Mohbad, he appeared fine," Ibrahim mentioned. 

He recounted an incident while en route with Mohbad, Mohbad's wife Cynthia, the car driver, and two other friends, where a disagreement ensued between Mohbad and his wife, leading to quarrels. 

Ibrahim intervened but was perceived negatively by Mohbad, prompting him to leave the car to resolve the situation on the road while Mohbad continued arguing with his wife.
