Mohbad: Lawyer writes Lagos govt, calls for coroner’s inquest


A Lagos-based lawyer has called for a coroner’s inquest to unravel the circumstances surrounding the death of Ilerioluwa Aloba popularly called Mohbad.

“In line with Sections 14 and 15 of the Coroner’s Systems Law of Lagos State, we hereby request for a Coroner’s Inquest to investigate and determine the cause and circumstances of Mohbad’s death,” the letter reads further.

Giving reasons the coroner’s inquest needs to be set up, Mr Ogun said that those with the deceased in his final moments had been “unable to give any tangible explanation as to the circumstances and cause of his death.”

“Importantly, we humbly request that you exercise the power under Section 17 of the Coroner’s System Law to order the exhumation of his body for the Chief Medical Examiner to anatomically determine the cause of his death.

Festus Ogun in a letter to Mojisola Dada, the Lagos chief coroner, on Monday, said Mr Aloba’s death was strange and suspicious.
