The Lagos State Police Command has inaugurated a 13-man special investigation team to probe the death of Nigerian singer, Ilerioluwa Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad.
Speaking at a press conference in Lagos on Monday, the Commissioner of Police in the state, Idowu Owohunwa, noted that the command will use all its powers to fish out everyone indicted, no matter where they are.
“Do not forget, we have unique access with INTERPOL. Everybody linked to it (the death of Mohbad) will be identified and they will be brought to establish their level of involvement,” Owohunwa stated.
Recall that Mohbad, a former signee of Marlian Records owned by Azeez Faashola, popularly known as Naira Marley, died at the age of 27 last Tuesday.
Naira Marley, while mourning the death of Mohbad in a post on his Instagram page last Friday, described him as “more than an artiste or signee but brother and dear friend” to him.
“From inception, we recognised Mohbad was a force to be reckoned with. His music gave so many people love and light. Mohbad touched us all with his heartfelt lyrics, story telling, infectious smile and energy. The news of his passing has left us with a permanent hole in our hearts,” the statement read in part.
In another post on his Instagram handle, he posted a video of the late singer with the caption, “Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji’un. Rest in perfect peace my broski 💡 🕊. I’m shattered 💔💔#Imole’sWorld💡. Got u forever bro.”
