Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the governor of Lagos State, has finally responded to the unfortunate death of Nigerian artist Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Imole Aloba, commonly known as Mohbad.
Mohbad died mysteriously on Tuesday, September 12th, according to GISTLOVER. Since his death, there have been calls for justice because no one has been able to explain why he died.
Following Mohbad’s untimely death at the age of 27, his former music boss, Naira Marley, has been engaged in scandal.
In response to the tragic death, Sanwo-Olu posted images of late Mohbad on Instagram with the caption:
“I would like to assure everyone that I am not oblivious to the sad passing of Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Imole Aloba (Mohbad). We have been closely working behind the scenes with relevant authorities, and following keenly the ongoing investigations.
“However, in order to boost the investigations, I have invited the Department of State Services (DSS) to join the investigation and widen the dragnet with inter-agency collaboration and use of best in class technology to unearth the truth.
“I have instructed that all those who may have played any role whatsoever in any event leading to the death of MohBad be made to face the law after a thorough investigation.
“I hereby plead with all those who may have vital information that may assist the investigation process to avail the investigating team with such. I have also appealed to the investigating team to guarantee the confidentiality and protection of all witnesses who may come forward with vital information or indicative evidence that may assist the process.”
The Police and the DSS have been admonished to brief the public on their efforts periodically.
The governor further appealed to all friends and fans of the deceased to stay calm and refrain from making inflammary utterances and reaching prejudicial conclusions on the matter.
According to him, staying calm and following the process keenly will be most solemn tribute to the memory of the departed talent.
He also commiserated with Mohbad’s family, friends, colleagues, and fans all over the world on Imole’s sad demise.
