The police have continued their investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death of singer, Ilerioluwa Aloba, known as Mohbad, on Thursday.

This came after Mohbad’s family and individuals implicated in the illegal embalming of his body were summoned for questioning.

Boluwatife Adeyemo, also known as Darosha, Mohbad’s Personal Assistant, underwent interrogation at Zone 2 Police Headquarters in the presence of Mohbad’s parents.

Following Darosha’s interrogation, the police requested further questioning of individuals mentioned in his statement.

Monisola Odumosu, head of the family’s legal team, disclosed that a second interrogatory meeting took place at Zone 2 Police Headquarters in Lagos State, emphasizing the police’s commitment to uncovering the identity of the “illegal mortician.”

“The police will reveal to the public soon, who illegally embalmed the body of the late singer, Ilerioluwa Aloba, widely known as Mohbad.

“The police stated they would work on their report and continue investigations which will be directed to the Legal Department of the force for a recommendation,” he said.

Mohbad’s family had previously petitioned the police, alleging that Darosha, Mohbad’s personal assistant, illegally embalmed the body, violating relevant laws.

“The meeting was held at Zone 2 and present at the meeting were Mr. Joseph Aloba (Mohbad’s father), Boluwatife Adeyemi (aka Darosha), Adura Aloba (Mohbad’s younger brother), Mrs. Abosede Olumuyi (Mohbad’s mother) and Cynthia Omowunmi Aloba (Mohbad’s wife). Others include Iya Lolade and Samuel (Mr. Joseph Aloba’s witnesses) and lawyers to the parties,” Odumosu added.

The controversy surrounding Mohbad’s death, exacerbated by social media posts, prompted calls for a thorough investigation to ascertain the cause of death.

Mohbad’s demise on September 12, 2023, triggered a series of events, including the formation of a special investigation team by the Lagos State Police Command and the subsequent arrests of individuals, including Naira Marley and Balogun Eletu.

While stating that the exhumation of Mohbad’s body for autopsy and toxicology tests depicts the gravity of the situation, the police revealed that they were awaiting conclusive results to shed light on the circumstances surrounding the singer’s death.
