According to the coffin maker, Mohbad's people requested the coffin to be made quickly, leaving no room for the usual measurement process.
The urgency, he said, led to the casket's standard size being used. He added that this resulted in the singer's neck appearing bent to fit inside.
“No time for measurement. You don't have to blame me for that cause they wanted it fast.”
Mixed reactions, backlash trail video of Mohbad's coffin maker
The video and photos of Mohbad's bent neck in the casket sparked outrage and condemnation from internet users.
Many expressed their anger and disappointment and criticised the coffin maker for alleged mishandling of the burial arrangements.
However, some netizens sympathied with the coffin maker.
“Why so fast? Mohbad was never dead. That boy is crying in the grave right now. The injection they gave him was to make him pass out for a few days to make him look like he's really dead and that's why they had to bend his neck in the coffin to avoid chances of him waking up. I keep feeling this way.”
“The father is to blame cos why will he bury your son in a rush way? This the craziest thing I've ever seen in my life.”
“Mohbad's father was one of the weapon fashioned against him.”
“Maybe they paid the father to keep quiet and act fast.”
“Wetin concern the maker for the, na the papa suppose answer many questions cos why tf were vou in a hurry.”
“What was the reason wanting to bury him fast when he is not even a Muslim? And also wanting a coffin made fast without even measuring his body if it would fit. You see how fishy this young man's demise is? You see the question marks surrounding the ordeal. What was the reason?”

“The question is: Why did they want the coffin fast? What happened to putting his body in the morque first?”
