Mohbad: Coroner’s Inquest Set To Begin On Friday


The Chief Coroner of the High Court of Lagos, Justice Mojisola Dada, has initiated an inquest to investigate the circumstances surrounding the untimely death of music star Mohbad.

The decision comes in response to a formal request made by human rights lawyer Femi Falana, SAN, for a thorough investigation into Mohbad’s demise.

In a letter dated September 18, Falana cited the Lagos State Coroner’s Law of 2007, specifically Section 15, which mandates that an inquest be conducted when a Coroner becomes aware of a death within their jurisdiction resulting from violent, unnatural, or suspicious circumstances.

Acknowledging Falana’s request, the Chief Coroner has notified him that a preliminary inquiry into Mohbad’s death will commence on Friday, September 29, at Magistrate Court 3, Candide-Johnson Courthouse, Ita-Elewa, Ikorodu.

The letter from the Chief Coroner stated, “I have the directives of the Chief Coroner Lagos State, Hon. Justice M.A Dada, to notify your good office of his Lordship’s order to convoke an inquest into the death of the above-named Ilerioluwa Oladimeji aka ‘Mohbad’, in view of the letter from your office to the Chief Coroner over the tragic death which you stated occurred in Ikorodu Lagos State, in the circumstances which require the convocation of an inquest pursuant to the extant provisions of Ss. 14 & 15 of the Coroner’s system law of Lagos State, Cap C15, Laws of Lagos State 2015.

“Your office is hereby notified that preliminary enquiries into the death of late Ilerioluwa Oladimeji by the undersigned coroner will commence on September 29, 2023, at Magistrate Court 3, Candide-Johnson Courthouse, Ita-Elewa, Ikorodu.”
