The Lagos state government ordered a coroner's inquest into the death of the 27-year-old singer.

Despite speculations, the police emphasize their commitment to working with verified information rather than rumours.
Giving an update on the autopsy, the state police public relations officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, on Monday, Novemebr 20, confirmed to The Punch newspaper that the command had yet to get the report officially.
“The autopsy report has not been given to us. Some people have been carrying rumours that it’s ready. It’s one thing for it to be ready, it’s another thing for it to be given to us officially – that we would receive and sign a copy that we have received it. So, we don’t work with rumours, we work with facts.”
But Hundeyin further said only the singer’s family lawyer could write to the pathologists to release the autopsy result or it would be independently given to the police when it is ready.
