Perez Medcare Hospital, Lagos, where late Nigerian rapper Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba a.k.a Mohbad, was taken to in his last moments, has broken the silence over his death.
Tribune online reports that Mohbad passed away on September 12 at the age of 27.
Following the death, there were unconfirmed reports that he was admitted at the hospital where he later gave up the ghost.
Reacting to the development in a statement on the hospital’s Instagram page late Monday night, the medical centre stated that Mohbad was brought in dead to their hospital with no sign of life in him.
According to the statement, the hospital disclosed that those who brought him to the hospital confirmed that he was treated at home by a nurse who was not a staff member of the hospital.
The hospital, however, commiserated with the family, friends, and fans of the late rapper during this difficult time.
The statement reads in full:
“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.
“We consider it pertinent to put on record that at about 04:30pm 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 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. 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 can be deposited in the morgue.
“Let it be known that Mr. Ilerioluwa 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 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.
“We are compelled to issue this statement to set the records straight and correct the wrong and false misinformation being circulated about Perez Medcare Hospital. We urge everyone to desist from spreading false information and be mindful of the sensitivity of this matter.
“While we express our condolences to the family and friends of the deceased Mr. llerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba (AKA Mohbad), we also lend our voice to the call for thorough investigation into the circumstances of his sudden death.”
