She is the main suspect in Mohbad’s death, the speaker continued. She admitted that the injection she gave the deceased caused the reactions that ultimately resulted in Mohbad’s death. Her admission was supported by other professional assessments and testimony from witnesses.
Her actions of giving Mohbad doses of Tetanus toxoid, paracetamol, and cetrazone injection intravenously on September 12, 2023, at his home, immediately caused the reaction including vomiting, goose bumps, and convulsion that ultimately led to the singer’s death.
