The coroner’s inquest into the death of singer Oladimeji Aloba better known as Mohbad began sitting on Friday at the Magistrate Court in Ikorodu, Lagos.
The coroner fixed October 13, 2023, for the appearing of witnesses before it.
Funmi Falana, who represented Mohbad’s family, alongside other lawyers, had closed-door proceedings to discuss the modalities for hearing of evidence.
Speaking to journalists after the proceedings, Falana said, “What we did today was to decide how and when the procedures would help get justice. The date has been fixed and we will be bringing our witnesses.”
The lawyer assured family and fans of the late singer that Mohbad would get justice.
“We are representing the interest of justice, we should allow peace to reign but justice must be served. We are going to get to the cause of the death,” she added.
The coronor inquest comes barely 24 hours after the police arrested show promoter, Sam Larry over an ongoing investigation into the circumstances leading to Mohbad’s death.
Sam Larry and musician Naira Marley have been at the centre of public outrage over the singer’s death.
