The musician died on Sept. 12 and was buried the following day. He was 27 years old.
His death has been generating controversies, prompting Lagos State Government to direct a coroner’s inquest into the death.
A preliminary meeting on the inquest took place on Friday at the court’s premises.
Mrs Falana told journalists that the meeting was to discuss the modalities for the inquest including a witness to bring before the court.
“I am sure you all know that the essence of the coroner’s inquest is to inquire into the cause of the death.
“By God’s grace, we want to assure the public that justice will definitely be served,” she said.
She said that by Oct. 13, witnesses would be testifying before the court, urging members of the public to be calm.
“We want to assure the public that justice will not be aborted.
“We are here to get to the root cause of the death of the young man, to serve as deterrent,” she said.
The controversy generated by the musician’s death also led the police command in Lagos State to set up a 19-man special team to investigate the incident.
The police have also exhumed the body of the late singer for investigation.
