The Lagos State Police Command has confirmed the completion of the exhumation process of the body of Nigerian singer, Ilerioluwa Olademeji Aloba, known as Mohbad. This action was part of further investigations into his death.
Benjamin Hundeyin, the spokesperson for the state police command, announced on Thursday that the autopsy would now proceed after the successful exhumation.
It was previously reported that the nurse who treated Mohbad and administered an injection before his death had been arrested. Investigators had found that the musician had been beaten by individuals who had threatened him after a show in Ikorodu. Following the beating, he sought medical treatment at home and subsequently suffered convulsions, eventually passing away. One of the injections administered to him was reported to be an anti-tetanus shot.
In response to these developments, Mohbad’s father, James Aloba, expressed suspicions about the nurse who administered the injection, suggesting that it might have contributed to his son’s health complications.
The Lagos State Police Command had earlier set up a 13-man special investigation panel to look into the circumstances surrounding Mohbad’s death. The police commissioner, Idowu Owohunwa, also mentioned plans to involve INTERPOL in the investigation.
Mohbad, the Nigerian singer, passed away on September 12, 2023, and there have been allegations of assault on him by Naira Marley and his crew. Mohbad had previously posted about the incident, detailing an attack he and his associates suffered at Naira Marley’s house, where he was assaulted by his manager and other individuals. The incident led to injuries and a hospitalization for medical care.
Additionally, Mohbad had filed a petition to the Nigeria Police Force earlier, reporting threats to his life from Samson Balogun, also known as Sam Larry, among others. However, the police did not take action on the petition.
Furthermore, Mohbad’s mother believes that her son was killed, casting further doubt on the circumstances surrounding his death.
