DNA is not a big deal - Actress Lizzy Anjorin speaks
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that actress Lizzy Anjorin shared her take on a DNA test being done for Mohbad's son.
For the indigenous movie star, having an autopsy performed is the worst possible outcome, and if an autopsy can be requested and fulfilled, then there's really no reason to be concerned about the results of a DNA test.
She went on to express her dismay that Mohbad's wife, whom she expected to be demanding justice for her husband, has been silent about the issue at hand.
