Mohbad's Autopsy Result Reveals Drug Reaction As Possible Cause Of Death

An autopsy conducted on the body of the late Nigerian singer, Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad, at Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH), has revealed that his death is possibly tied to a drug reaction, News About Nigeria

According to the autopsy result, which was made available to newsmen on Friday, although the exact cause of Mohbad’s death is still uncertain, there is speculation about a potential drug reaction based on limited post-mortem and toxicology findings.

According to the report, samples of the late singer’s gastric content, blood, bone marrow, liver, kidney, and lung were collected for a comprehensive toxicology examination.

The result of the test then revealed the presence of diphenhydramine, an antihistamine, in Mohbad’s system.

The result added that the concentration detected was not deemed fatal or lethal.

Antihistamines like diphenhydramine are used to treat allergies, stomach ailments, cold symptoms, and anxiety.

Also, the anatomical and pathological examination showed an injury on Mohbad’s right forearm, and his body was found to be severely decomposed upon exhumation.

The result reads, “It is noteworthy that the body neither had an autopsy nor was 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, overdosage or common household poisoning.

“Toxicology revealed positive findings 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. 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.”
