Two weeks after the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Idowu Owohunwa, promised Actress Iyabo Ojo and her team a robust investigation into the death of late Afrobeat singer, Ilerioluwa Aloba popularly known as MohBad, the police boss has revealed the progress made so far.
The Lagos Police Command confirmed at a press conference on Friday that the auxiliary nurse, Feyisayo Ogedengbe, who treated the late singer is a principal suspect in the case as the treatment she administered to him was largely responsible for his death.
Owohunwa listed 26 suspects linked to MohBad’s death that have been interrogated, but said five of them were detained, including the Marlian record boss, AbdulAzeez Adeshina, popular as Naira Marley and socialite, Samson Erinfolami Balogun a.k.a. Sam Larry.
The police boss also stated that the result of the autopsy and toxicology tests carried out were not ready yet.
Furthermore, he said a detailed report by a team of investigators identified some illegal acts and professional negligence in the manner the drugs were administered on the deceased by the principal suspect, Ms Feyisayo Ogedengbe.
He said, “Feyisayo Ogedengbe ‘f’, who as an auxiliary nurse administered multiple and highly potent injections which triggered an immediate reaction that eventually occasioned the death of Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba (Mohbad) is the principal suspect in the homicide case.
“Feyisayo Ogedengbe is not a qualified registered nurse, and her illegal and medical negligence are believed to have been directly responsible for the chain reactions and eventual death of Mohbad at 1543hrs on 12th September, 2023.”
MohBad was said to have attended a musical concert at Ikorodu Town Hall on September 10th, 2023 when a fight broke out between the late singer and his friend, Ibrahim Owodunni, causing him an injury on his forehand.
The late singer’s alleged refusal to immediately treat the injury was said to have led to a more difficult situation, which made Mohad’s friend, Ayobami Sadiq, invite his personal nurse to treat him.
The police insisted that Naira Marley, Sam Larry and their gangs were indicted to have bullied the late singer.
