The Lagos State Police Command has made substantial progress in its investigation into the tragic death of Nigerian singer Mohbad, born Ilerioluwa Aloba. The prime suspect in the case has been identified as Ms. Feyisayo Ogedengbe, an auxiliary nurse.
Mohbad, at the age of 27, passed away on September 12, and the circumstances surrounding his demise have generated significant controversy, particularly as old videos of the singer alleging bullying and physical assault have resurfaced.
During a press briefing on Friday, Commissioner of Police Idowu Owohunwa revealed crucial details about the case. It was disclosed that Feyisayo Ogedengbe administered a combination of “multiple and highly potent” injections to Mohbad on September 12. These injections included Tetanus Toxoid, paracetamol, and Cetrazone, an antibiotic, which led to an immediate adverse reaction marked by vomiting, goosebumps, and convulsions.
Commissioner Owohunwa underscored the fact that Ogedengbe was not qualified to act as a home nurse and administered the injections in a non-clinical environment, indicating a severe lapse in professionalism.
Another individual implicated in the case is Ibrahim Oluwatosin Owodunni, known as Primeboy, who was described as a childhood friend of Mohbad. The police commissioner revealed that Primeboy had attended an event with Mohbad on September 10, during which a physical altercation between the two took place, ultimately resulting in the singer’s injury.
“The management of the injury subsequently resulted in his death,” Owohunwa stated.
Furthermore, Sam Larry, whose real name is Samson Balogun, has been arrested and remains in detention due to his alleged involvement in Mohbad’s death, as well as his connection to viral videos posted by Mohbad alleging bullying and assault.
Abdul-Aziz Fashola, popularly known as Naira Marley, has also been taken into custody over similar allegations.
Commissioner Owohunwa disclosed that on September 21, Mohbad’s remains were exhumed, and an autopsy, as well as toxicology tests, were conducted. The results of these investigations are still pending, promising further insight into the circumstances surrounding the untimely demise of the Afrobeats star.
