Autopsy Reveals Possible Cause Of Mohbad’s Death


The autopsy results from the examination conducted at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH) were acquired by TheCable Lifestyle on Thursday.

The report indicated that various samples were taken from the late singer Mohbad’s body for toxicology testing, including gastric content, blood, bone marrow, liver, kidney, and lung.

The findings revealed an injury on his right forearm and moderate to severe decomposition.

Despite this, no significant gross findings were linked to his death. The toxicology results showed the presence of Diphenhydramine, an anti-histamine, but not at a fatal level.

Anti-histamines are commonly used to manage allergy symptoms and other conditions like stomach issues, colds, and anxiety.

The report concluded that the exact cause of death could not be determined, but there is a possibility of a drug reaction based on the post-mortem and toxicology results.

“It is noteworthy that the body neither had an autopsy nor 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,” the report read.
