Perez Medcare Hospital where the late singer was taken to in Lagos has broken its silence on the death of MohBbad.
In a statement issued on Monday night by the hospital management, it stated that Mohbad was brought in dead to its facility.
The 27-year-old singer was dead on arrival on September 12 according to the statement.
After failed attempts to resuscitate him, the hospital stated that it advised the individuals who brought him to deposit his body in a morgue.
“We consider it pertinent to put on record that at about 4:30 p.m. on the 12th of September 2023, the lifeless body of Mr Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba (aka MohBad) was brought to our medical facility and our medical team immediately sprang into action,” said the hospital. “And after assessment, it was discovered that there was no sign of life, no central or peripheral pulse, no heartbeat, no recordable vital signs and his pupils were fixed and dilated.”
It added, “On attempting CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation), rigor mortis (stiffening of some parts of the body in relation to death) was observed, and the persons who brought him to our facility were informed that it was a case of BID (brought in dead).”
The statement added that “upon enquiry about the circumstances leading to the emergency, our team was informed that the deceased was being treated at home by a nurse and that she administered injections on him,” pointing out that the nurse “who was said to be administering treatment on him at home is not a staff of Perez Medcare Hospital and the video of the medical facility circulating in the media space in which the late Mr Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba (aka MohBad) is seen alive and receiving treatment is not Perez Medcare Hospital.”
The hospital insisted that MohBad was not its patient and “was never admitted at our hospital at any material time whatsoever.”
