Mohbad’s family lawyer, Wahab Shittu revealed this during a press briefing at the coroner’s inquiry in Lagos State on Wednesday, May 15.

According to Shittu, the pathologist who was in-charge of the autopsy informed the coroner that significant decomposition had occurred by the time the examination was performed.

“The pathologist said the body ought to have been exhumed within 12 hours after it was buried to avoid decomposition. So the summary he is saying is that the cause of death cannot be ascertained, and when you say the cause of death cannot be ascertained, it means it is suspicious, it is not clear, and there is no particular reason,” Shittu told the press.

“He also went further to say that it may be attributed to reactions to certain drugs administered to him before he died. Again, he then qualified that to say he does not know whether it is those drugs that led to his death.” Shittu added.

The inquest has been postponed until June 11 for further questioning of a forensic expert.
