The Lagos State Police Command has taken the step of exhuming the body of the singer Ilerioluwa Aloba, widely known as Mohbad, as investigations into his death continue.
Mohbad’s death last Tuesday raised concerns and led to accusations directed at the Marlian Record Label’s owner, Afeez Fashola, professionally known as Naira Marley.
Allegations and counter-allegations have also arisen among his distant relatives regarding his estate in the days following his demise.
Many Nigerians questioned why he was buried in Ikorodu, Lagos, immediately after his death, but his father explained that it was by Yoruba customs.
Nigerian youths have organized peaceful protests demanding justice for Mohbad, prompting both the Nigerian police and Lagos police command to pledge investigations. Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has also called for the Department of State Service (DSS) to join in the investigation.
On Thursday morning, Lagos police spokesperson Ben Hundeyin confirmed that Mohbad’s body had been exhumed, with an autopsy set to follow.
Hundeyin made this announcement on X, stating, “Exhumation completed. Autopsy to commence.”
