The hospital where the late musician Mohbad was supposedly proclaimed dead after being brought there, Perez Medcare Hospital, has spoken out about the incident.
Mohbad was taken into the hospital on Tuesday, September 12, at around 4.30 p.m. with no indications of life, according to a statement the hospital released on its Instagram page.
As soon as Mohbad was brought in, their medical staff sprung into action, and following an examination, they discovered that he had fixed and dilated pupils as well as no heartbeat, no central or peripheral pulse, and no apparent vital signs. The hospital stated that he was already stiffening up in several places. According to the hospital, when they asked about the singer’s care at home, they discovered that a nurse had been injecting him there.
The hospital also stated that the companions were instructed to transport Mohbad’s body to the closest general hospital and deposit it in the mortuary.
The statement 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.
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.
Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba (AKA Mohbad), we also lend our voice to the call for thorough investigation into the circumstances of his sudden death.
