The arrival of family members of Nigerian singer Mohbad at the coroner’s inquest on Wednesday has sparked discussions among netizens. The family is seeking to determine the cause of Mohbad’s death, and their presence as witnesses is a constructive step toward achieving this goal. The evidence they provide, along with any answers the arrested suspects may give, will help the coroner and lawyers represent the family and uncover the truth about this tragic event.
If a death occurs under questionable circumstances, a legal investigation called a coroner’s inquest is carried out to establish the cause of the death. This process typically takes several days and requires the presence of the deceased’s family members throughout the entire proceeding. During the coroner’s inquest, evidence is presented and witnesses are called to testify in order to gather information about the circumstances surrounding the death. The purpose of this thorough investigation is to ensure transparency and provide closure for the family, as well as to determine if any criminal charges should be pursued.
Netizens have reacted on socials as they expressed their views, while hoping justice is served when the inquiry ends.
