Contrary to what the Lagos State government alleged, officials at the US National Medical Service Laboratories (NMS) in Pennsylvania have denied doing toxicity tests on the late Nigerian musician Ilerioluwa Promise Aloba, also known as Mohbad.

The pathologist's claim on May 15 that an autopsy on Mohbad's decomposing corpse was unable to determine the cause of his death, prompted this revelation from NMS.

Recall that the 27-year-old Mohbad died under suspicious circumstances, igniting a national uproar and demonstrations.

A N50 million reward was announced by African Television and the African Foundation for Justice to anyone who could provide important information on Mohbad's murderers.

According to Esther Dede, the Client Services Associate for NMS's Forensic Divisions, the late singer's toxicity test was not carried out anywhere on the lab's premises.

When contacted on Wednesday, Gbenga Omotoso, the Lagos state commissioner for information, said that NMS Lab was the name of the laboratory that the state's DNA and Forensic Centre had submitted for Mohbad's autopsy.

Wahab Shittu, Mohbad's attorney, promised that the pathology report on the singer's autopsy test results would not be the end.
