Posted by badgeBusayo on 0

Renowned human rights lawyer, Femi Falana (SAN), has taken a significant step in the pursuit of justice by formally requesting a Coroner’s Inquest into the demise of Nigerian singer, Ilerioluwa Aloba, widely known as Mohbad.

This development comes amidst the swirling controversies surrounding Mohbad's unfortunate passing on September 12, 2023, followed by his burial the next day.

Falana's request was presented in a letter addressed to the Chief Coroner of the High Court of Lagos State in Ikeja.

In this letter, Falana explicitly noted that his law firm had been made aware of the "very tragic death" of Mohbad and emphasized the need for a thorough investigation. He called for an inquest "to be conducted into the cause of death of this young promising musician and make appropriate recommendations pursuant to Section 15 of the Lagos State Coroner’s Law 2007 which provides that an inquest shall hold whenever a coroner is informed that the death of a deceased person within his Coroner District is as a result of a death in a violent, unnatural or suspicious situation.”

The formal request, bearing the signature of Folakemi Falana and dated September 18, 2023, concluded with a plea: “We hereby request Your Lordship to conduct an inquest into the circumstances surrounding the tragic death in Lagos State and we are confident that Your Lordship will accede to our request with utmost urgency.”
