Mohbad: Iyabo Ojo Calls For Action As Timeline Expires
Popular actress Iyabo Ojo expressed her disappointment today as the two-week deadline set by the commissioner of police for releasing the autopsy results in the MohBad case has elapsed without any update from the authorities.
Joined by the “Justice for MohBad” group, which she leads, protesters had gathered at the House of Assembly on September 20 to demand justice for the late singer. During their efforts, they met with Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Idowu Owohunwa, who implicated Naira Marley and Sam Larry in MohBad’s death and hinted at video evidence.
On October 4, Iyabo Ojo shared an excerpt of a conversation with the police, in which they requested 14 days to complete their investigation and provide the autopsy results. The police commissioner stated, “In two weeks, I should be able to gather all of us and say, ‘This is where we are. This is the progress we’ve made.'”
Iyabo Ojo responded by saying, “So we’re coming back here in two weeks?” to which her team confirmed, “Yes.” The police commissioner assured them they would be welcomed.
Now that the two-week investigation window has expired, Iyabo Ojo, on behalf of the Nigerian public, has demanded an update from the police regarding their inquiry into MohBad’s controversial death. She stressed the need for justice not only for the late singer and DJ Splash but also for all Nigerian children.
In her caption accompanying the video clip, Iyabo Ojo urged the police to provide an update, stating, “Sir, the whole world awaits to hear from you, sir.”
This ongoing case has garnered significant attention, and the public remains eager for answers regarding MohBad’s tragic passing.
Guardian had recently reported how the Nollywood actress along with Tonto Dikeh paid a visit to the late singers residence in lekki as part of a larger group seeking for justice. Mohbad died on the 12th of September, and currently investigations are on, to unravel the mysteries behind the death of the fast rising star.
