Late Singer Mohbad’s Body Finally Exhumed For Autopsy
In a significant development, the Lagos State Police Command has successfully exhumed the body of renowned Nigerian singer Ilerioluwa Olademeji Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad. This action comes as part of an ongoing investigation into the mysterious death of the artist.
The police had previously announced their intention to exhume the remains to conduct a thorough autopsy, seeking to shed light on the circumstances surrounding Mohbad’s passing.
According to Benjamin Hundeyin, the spokesperson for the state police command, the autopsy is set to commence following the completion of the exhumation. In a tweet, he stated, “Exhumation completed. Autopsy to commence.”
Earlier reports by SaharaReporters had detailed the arrest of a nurse who treated Mohbad and allegedly administered an injection before his demise. Sources within the police force revealed that investigators had determined that the musician had been assaulted by individuals who had previously threatened him, immediately after a performance in Ikorodu. These attacks left Mohbad with injuries that prompted him to seek medical assistance at home.
Tragically, after receiving injections, including an anti-tetanus shot, Mohbad began experiencing convulsions and subsequently passed away at his residence. His father, James Aloba, expressed suspicions regarding the nurse’s role, suggesting that the injection may have contributed to his son’s deteriorating health.
Following Mohbad’s untimely death on September 12, 2023, there have been allegations of assault involving Naira Marley and his crew. In a series of posts dated October 6, 2022, Mohbad recounted a confrontation with Naira Marley and his manager, Tunde, which escalated into violence and led to injuries sustained by Mohbad and his companions.
The Lagos State Police Command, in response to public concerns, inaugurated a 13-member special investigation panel to uncover the circumstances surrounding Mohbad’s death. Commissioner Idowu Owohunwa also indicated that they would engage INTERPOL in their inquiry to ensure all those involved in the case are identified and brought to justice.
Meanwhile, Mohbad’s mother has voiced her belief that her son may have been deliberately killed. This ongoing investigation has raised questions and concerns within the Nigerian music industry, as fans and stakeholders anxiously await further developments in the case.
