The Lagos Police Command has officially announced that the body of the late singer, Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba, known as Mohbad, has been transported to the mortuary.
Benjamin Hundeyin, the State Police Public Relations Officer, confirmed this development during an interview on Friday.
Hundeyin clarified that the deceased singer’s remains were taken to the mortuary after the completion of the autopsy, which took place in the Ikorodu area of the state on Thursday.
Furthermore, Hundeyin dismissed speculations suggesting that the remains had been reburied, emphasizing that the body had been placed in the mortuary.
“It is at the mortuary,” he said.
It was earlier reported that the State Police Command on Thursday confirmed the conclusion of the autopsy on the remains of the late singer.
The police in a statement issued via its X platform (formerly Twitter), confirmed the successful completion of the autopsy and promised to provide additional information to the public once the results become available.
The 27-year-old singer died under mysterious circumstances on the 12th of September 2023 and was buried in Ikorodu, Lagos State, the next day.
The death of the popular artist sparked widespread reactions, with some Nigerians accusing his former boss, Naira Marley, and music promoter, Sam Larry, of being responsible for his demise.
This prompted Nigerians to call for justice, while others have taken to the streets in Lagos, Ogun, and other parts of the country, urging the police to fish out his killers.
