The coroner inquest into the death of singer Ilerioluwa Aloba aka Mohbad will begin at the Lagos Magistrate Court in Ikorodu on Friday.
The Coroner, Magistrate Taofikat Shotobi, disclosed this via a letter dated September 26 and addressed to the Falana and Falana Chambers.
The law firm had on September 19 demanded a coroner inquest into the 27-year-old singer’s death.
Mohbad died on September 12 and was buried in a cemetery in the Ikorodu area of the state the following day.
The Lagos State police command last week conducted an autopsy on the deceased in a bid to unravel the cause of his death.
In the letter, Shotobi said the state’s Chief Coroner, Justice Mojisola Dada, had directed to conduct an inquest into the singer’s death in line with Sections 14 and 15 of the Coroner’s System Law of Lagos State, Cap C15, Laws of Lagos State 2015.
