In response to the recent controversy surrounding the untimely demise of the popular street pop singer, Mohbad, Perez Medcare Hospital has come forward to clarify the circumstances of his death.
The hospital, which had been at the center of speculation regarding the singer’s passing, released an official statement addressing the situation.
Mohbad, whose real name was Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba, tragically lost his life on Tuesday, September 12, 2023. His passing has ignited debates and discussions on various social media platforms.
In a statement issued on Monday, Perez Medcare Hospital refuted claims that Mohbad had passed away within their facility. The hospital maintained that the singer was brought to them already deceased, displaying no signs of life, central or peripheral pulse, heartbeat, or recordable vital signs.
The official statement from Perez Medcare read: “The attention of the management of Perez Medcare Hospital has been drawn to the misleading and false information being circulated in some social media platforms that Mr. Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba (AKA Mohbad) died in our medical facility.”
The hospital continued, “We consider it pertinent to put on record that at about 04:30 pm 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. 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.”
The statement further revealed that the hospital attempted Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR), but rigor mortis had already set in, leading the medical team to conclude that the singer had been brought in dead.
“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).
“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. Our team thereafter advised that the body be taken to the nearest Government Hospital where he could be deposited in the morgue.
“Let it be known that Mr. llerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba (AKA Mohbad) was not a patient of Perez Medcare Hospital and was never admitted at our hospital at any material time whatsoever. Also, the nurse who was said to be administering treatment on him at home is not a staff of Perez Medcare Hospital.”
It has been reported that Mohbad’s father, Joseph Aloba, disclosed that his son had passed away after receiving an injection administered by an “auxiliary nurse.” Subsequently, Nigerian actress Iyabo Ojo confirmed the arrest of the “auxiliary nurse” by the Lagos police.
As investigations continue into the circumstances surrounding Mohbad’s tragic death, Perez Medcare Hospital’s statement sheds light on the events leading up to the singer’s arrival at their facility, clarifying that his demise occurred prior to his arrival at the hospital.
