Anyone indicted in Mohbad’s death won’t go unpunished – Police

THE spokesperson for the Nigerian Police Force (NPF), Muyiwa Adejobi, stated today that anyone indicted in the killing of Afrobeats musician Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba, also known as Mohbad, will not go unpunished.

Adejobi stated this in response to a post on X (previously Twitter) stating that many Nigerians are awaiting the conclusion of the police investigation despite the fact that an accused suspect in the case is currently out of the country.

“Anyone who is indicted in this case won’t go unpunished. Whatever it is, there must be investigation concluded and report forwarded for necessary action,” Adejobi said.

“If it is on this Mohbad matter, the matter has received due attention. Except there are hidden agendas that certain individuals want to use to cause unrest or incite the public against the government in Nigeria.

“I think we need to allow the investigation team formed by the police to carry out its investigations. There can’t be justice without investigation. Investigation encompasses so many things.

“Don’t be surprised that those you don’t know or you have not mentioned might be indicted. In the security business, we say trust no one. So, let us allow the team to do its job.”

Meanwhile, the spokesman for the Lagos State Police Command, Benjamin Hundeyin, stated last Thursday that the late musician Mohbad’s remains could be exhumed for autopsy.

Hundeyin made the remarks during an Instagram live session with media personality Ifedayo Olarinde, commonly known as Daddy Freeze, while answering questions about Mohbad’s death.

He mentioned this after Adejobi said in a statement on Thursday that the Police will conduct a thorough investigation into the late musician’s death.

The police have also urged family members and close associates of the late Mohbad who have vital information to contact the Lagos State Commissioner of Police to help with this investigation.

Police further urged people not to make statements or engage in activities that could damage the ongoing investigation, as people’s trust and support are greatly valued.
