Mohbad: Lawyer Send Formal Letter to the Attorney General of Lagos, Urging the Initiation of a Coroner’s Inquest


Festus Ogun, a lawyer representing his law firm, has formally written to the Attorney General of Lagos State, Moyosore Onigbanjo, seeking a Coroner’s Inquest into the suspicious demise of the Nigerian singer, Ilerioluwa Aloba, known as Mohbad.

The Lagos Police Command recently established a specialized 13-member investigation team to delve into the mysterious death of Mohbad, which occurred last week.

Lagos State Commissioner, Idowu Owohunwa, emphasized their cooperation with INTERPOL, assuring that anyone associated with Mohbad’s demise will be identified and held accountable for their level of involvement.

In his statement on Monday, Ogun pointed out that once news of Mohbad’s passing surfaced, there were strong indications that his sudden death was not natural. Disturbing videos circulated on social media, depicting Mohbad in agony and recounting the suffering he endured at the hands of certain individuals.

There were also credible reports suggesting that Mohbad had been persistently subjected to bullying, harassment, torture, assault, and intimidation by certain tormentors who continued to plague him and his promising musical career up until his demise.

Ogun highlighted that those who were last with Mohbad before his death could not provide a coherent explanation for the events leading to his passing. Their accounts were inconsistent and lacked credibility.

Furthermore, Ogun criticized the hasty and rushed burial of the artist, deeming it suspicious and concerning. He expressed valid reasons to suspect that the circumstances surrounding Mohbad’s death were unnatural and questionable.

In accordance with Sections 14 and 15 of the Coroner’s Systems Law of Lagos State, Ogun formally requested a Coroner’s Inquest to thoroughly investigate and determine the cause and circumstances surrounding Mohbad’s death.

Upon the completion of the Coroner’s Inquest, there is an expectation that the investigative findings will be made public, and those found culpable will face appropriate sanctions from the relevant authorities.

Ogun conveyed full confidence in the competence and integrity of the Lagos State Coroner System to uncover the truth behind Mohbad’s untimely demise. He urged that this request be expedited in the pursuit of justice and fairness.
