Notable Nigerians have continued to call for a comprehensive inquiry into the sudden death of a Nigerian artiste, Iireioluwa Aloba also known by his stage name (Mohbad).
A lawyer, Festus Ogun, has written to the Attorney General of Lagos State, Moyosore Onigbanjo, requesting a coroner’s inquest into the suspicious death of the talented singer. The rapper was said to have died tragically following an injection he received from an unknown nurse who was allegedly treating him for ear infections.
However, there are insinuations making the rounds that he died due to multiple injuries and abuse suffered from members of his record label known as Marlian music. The music company is owned by another music artiste, Azeez Adeshina Fashola, a Nigerian- British singer and song writer with stage name, Naira marley
According to unconfirmed report, the late musician told the record label that he needed a change of manager as he feels shortchanged in the skim of things. This led to serious arguments between the late artiste and members of the record label, Marlian music
In a statement on Monday, Ogun said that immediately after the news of MohBad’s demise became public, there were strong reports indicating that his sudden demise was not natural.
“In fact, there were videos circulating on social media where Mohbad was seen agonising and lamenting the pains he had gone through at the hands of some individuals.
There are equally credible reports suggesting that Mohbad was persistently bullied, harassed, tortured, assaulted, and intimidated by some elements who tormented him and his bright musical career even up until the time of his death,” he said.
Mr.Ogun further noted that those who were with him during the said sickness that led to his death, cannot pinpoint any serious issue that could have led to his untimely passing.
He condemned the quick and hurried burial of the artist, which he described as “a manner that calls for suspicion and concern,” adding that there are reasons to believe that the cause of Mohbad’s death was unnatural and suspicious.
