The Lagos State police spokesperson, Benjamin Hundeyin, on Thursday said they are ready to go the extra mile to ensure that they unravel the circumstances surrounding the shocking death of Nigerian rapper Ilerioluwa Aloba, aka Mohbad.
Mr Hundeyin gave the assurance when he appeared on Daddy Freeze’s Instagram live show alongside singer and producer Samkelf.
“The Force PRO issued a statement this evening saying an investigation would commence. And that is what we are going to do. If need be, the body would be exhumed. It’s not too late. The body can be exhumed. An autopsy can be performed.”
On Thursday, the Nigerian Police released a press statement affirming their unwavering commitment to a meticulous investigation into Mohbad’s puzzling death amidst allegations and public outcry.
The 27-year-old singer died on Tuesday and was buried in Ikorodu, Lagos State, on Wednesday.
Mohbad was known for his streetwise and relatable lyrics that often touch on everyday life and experiences.
There have been several controversies surrounding the death of the Ponmo crooner, as he was in constant feud with his former boss, Naira Marley, when he split from Marlian Record in 2022.
However, Naira Marley seems not to be the only one who fell out with the deceased singer in recent times, as a petition written by Mohbad before his death over an alleged threat to life by music promoter Samson Balogun, aka Sam Larry and others, has surfaced online.
A petition dated 27 June 2023 alleges that Sam Larry, accompanied by 15 others, forcibly entered a video shoot location where MohBad and fellow artist Zlatan Ibile were working. Credit: premiumtimesng.com
