Perez Medcare Hospital, the facility where the late singer Mohbad was taken before his death, has finally spoken out amidst the ongoing investigation by Nigerians.
In a press statement posted on their Instagram page on Monday night, the hospital dispelled rumors that the singer had been declared dead while in their care or had been admitted to their facility.
The hospital clarified that Mohbad was, in fact, brought in already deceased, and the individuals who brought him to the hospital confirmed that he had received treatment at home from a nurse who was not part of their staff.
The statement partly read,
“The attention of the management of Perez Medcare Hospital has been drawn to the misleading and false information being circulated on some social media platforms that Mr. Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba (AKA Mohbad) died in our medical facility.

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.
