The Truth Behind Mohbad’s Untimely Death
After the investigation by the Special Investigation Team concerning the sudden death of the late Nigerian rapper, Ilerioluwa Aloba, aka Mohbad, Lagos State Police Command yesterday came up with a provisional report on what they believed caused Mohbad’s death on September 12, 2023.
Owohunwa reported, “ The Auxiliary Nurse who was contacted and invited by Ayobami Sadiq (a.k.a Spending), a friend of Mohbad, on 11th September 2023 to treat the singer at his residence at Lekki-Lagos. She eventually came on Tuesday, September 12, 2023, and administered three different injections which are believed to have occasioned the chain of reactions that directly resulted in the death of the singer.
“She is the Principal Suspect in the death of Mohbad. She acknowledged that it was the injections that she administered to the deceased that triggered the reactions which eventually led to Mohbad’s death. Other expert opinions and witnesses’ statements corroborated her admittance. Her actions of administering doses of Tetanus Toxoid, Paracetamol (IV), and Ceftriaxone injection (IV) on Mohbad at his residence on September 12, 2023, immediately and directly triggered the reactions
“This criminal liability is further heightened given the evidential fact that as an auxiliary nurse, she is not qualified to administer such medications or function as a qualified nurse. She also did this in a non-clinical environment and in a professionally negligent manner that negated standard medical protocols.
“ Mr. Ayobami Sodiq, a friend of Mohbad who invited the auxiliary nurse to treat him is being suspected of conspiracy in the death of the singer.
His action in inviting a person known to him as an auxiliary nurse to attend to the deceased in a non-clinical setting occasioned Mohbad’s death. He is being held for conspiracy to commit a felony”.
For Abdulazeez Fashola (a.k.a Naira Marley) and Samson Balogun Eletu popularly called Sam Larry, he revealed that “written testimonies of the witnesses aided detectives in gaining a clearer insight into the allegations of assault and bullying leveled against them.
“Many witnesses alleged that the deceased was indeed bullied and assaulted several times by AbdulAzeez Adeshina Fashola (a.k.a. Naira Marley) ‘m’ and Samson Erinfolami Balogun (a.k.a. Sam Larry) ‘m’ and their gangs. It was affirmed that sometime in 2019, the deceased was allegedly signed by Naira Marley into a record label known as Marlians Music Limited. Due to disagreement on terms of the contract, the deceased, Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba (a.ka. Mohbad) pressed for the revocation of his contractual relationship with Marlian Music Label, while also pushing to relieve his then manager who was a brother to Naira Marley.
“It was alleged that these moves irked the suspects, AbdulAzeez Adeshina Fashola (a.k.a. Naira Marley) ‘m’ and Samson Erinfolami Balogun (a.k.a. Sam Larry) ‘m’ who in consequence, allegedly on several occasions conspired, bullied, and assaulted the deceased. It was also asserted by some witnesses with corroborative video evidence that before his demise, Mohbad had raised an alarm that his life was being threatened. He was being bullied and assaulted by Naira Marley and Sam Larry.
Upon their arrest, AbdulAzeez Adeshina Fashola (a.k.a. Naira Marley) and Samson Erinfolami Balogun (a.k.a. Sam Larry) denied allegation of complicity in the death of Mohbad by pleading to the alibi that they were both out of the country when the incident occurred and that they were not in any manner involved in the chain of events that occasioned his death between 10th – 12th September, 2023. However, there is a preponderance of evidence linking both Naira Marley and Sam Larry to the allegations of threat to life, cyberstalking, and sundry crimes committed against Mohbad in his lifetime and they are being held liable”.
“For the fifth suspect, Ibrahim Owoduni (a.k.a PrimeBoy) who was the deceased’s Childhood friend, he was discovered to have attended the show at Ikorodu with the deceased on September 10, 2023, at the end of which they both engaged in a violent fight during which Mohbad was injured. The management of the injury subsequently resulted in his death”.
Speaking concerning the measures the Special Investigation Team took in discovering the truth, he said: Exhumation and Autopsy on Mohbad’s body, Toxicology Tests, which results he said were still being awaited, as well as a visit to Mohbad’s home which was described as the crime scene, to review the Close Circuit Television footages covering days of the incident which he said was out of order.
“The engagement led to the recovery of remnants of the drugs, injections, and other test kits administered by the auxiliary nurse, including; one Tetanus toxoid injection, three used syringes, two used syringes filled with suspected medicine contents, one packet of ceftriaxone solution, procaine penicillin injection, empty broken of diclofenac injection, paracetamol diluted with water, water for injection, six hand gloves, one bandage, one plaster and one iodine solution. Also separately recovered is the Mobile Phone of the deceased. All were registered as exhibits”, Owohunwa said.
He went on to say that detectives also visited Cura-Med Hospital and Perez Hospital, both in Lekki area of Lagos where Mohbad was taken to and pronounced dead on arrival, as well as Chandelier Night Club, in Victoria Island Lagos, and Elegushi Beach, Lekki-Lagos, where he was said to have been assaulted and bullied, some months before his death.
In addition, Medical Experts were sent to interview the Auxiliary nurse, he said, “ On September 26, 2023, a team of Medical Doctors, Pharmacist, and Nurse drawn from the Pharmacists Council of Nigeria, Nigerian Medical Association, and the Nigeria Police Force Medical Services jointly interviewed the Auxiliary nurse.
“A detailed report which is being utilized as an expert opinion and critical evidence of high prosecutorial value has been submitted. It specifically identified some illegal acts and professional negligence in the manner the drugs were administered to the deceased by the principal suspect.
The Report also ascertained that as an auxiliary Nurse, Ms. Feyisayo does not have the competence, knowledge, brief, or certification to diagnose, prescribe, or administer drugs and injections to patients as she was supposed to work under the directives and supervision of a qualified medical doctor or nurse while on duty. The Report also strongly propelled that there is a link between the medical carelessness of Auxiliary Nurse Feyisayo Ogedengbe and the death of the late singer, Mohbad.
Concerning the Autopsy conducted on Mohbad, he said, “Although the result of the autopsy and toxicology tests are being awaited, substantial grounds have been covered well enough by the Special Investigation Team to support the processing of the casefile to the Director of Public Prosecution.
“Consequently, the casefile is being duplicated and forwarded to the Director of Public Prosecution for vetting and legal advice, the outcome of which could inform further investigative actions and prosecution.
“While re-assuring that the Command will sustain its firm determination to ensure justice in this case, I wish to assure that the members of the public will be availed of any further development in relation to the outcomes of the Autopsy and Toxicology Reports, DPP advice, feedback from NDLEA and any other development in the investigation into this case”, he said.
