The Lagos state police command says the body of Mohbad, the late street pop singer, may be exhumed for an autopsy.
Mohbad, born Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba, 27, passed away on Tuesday. He was laid to rest on Wednesday.
The police announced a comprehensive investigation into Mohbad’s death on Thursday.
Benjamin Hundeyin, the state’s police spokesperson, in a chat with Daddy Freeze, the media personality, said the investigation will be initiated as ordered by the force PRO.
He said the police are open to exhuming Mohbad’s body for an autopsy if it becomes necessary to determine the cause of death.
Hundeyin also urged anyone with information about Mohbad’s death to come forward and speak to the authorities.
“The force PRO issued a statement this evening (Thursday) saying that investigation will commence and that is what we are going to do,” he said.
“If need be, the body will be exhumed. It is not too late. The body can be exhumed and an autopsy can be performed.
“The statement also states that people should bring whatever information they have to the commissioner of police in Lagos state.
“That is because we do not want to do hierarchy anymore. Take it to Force CID, bring it to Lagos Command. It does not matter. We are going to harmonise it within ourselves and ensure that justice is done.”
The cause of Mohbad’s death is still unknown.
But Joseph Aloba, his father, revealed he died shortly after an auxiliary nurse was invited to give him an injection.
Omowunmi, the partner of Mohbad, also recounted the singer’s struggles when he was alive.
