The Lagos State Police Command has taken a significant step in investigating the untimely demise of Nigerian music artist, Ilerioluwa Aloba, who was widely recognized as Mohbad. A 13-member special investigation team has been officially inaugurated for this purpose.
The announcement came during a press conference held on Monday, as conveyed by Lagos Commissioner of Police, Idowu Owohunwa. He emphasized the commitment of the command to leverage every available resource and authority to uncover the truth behind Mohbad’s tragic death.
Commissioner Owohunwa made it clear that the Lagos State Police Command possesses unique access to INTERPOL, the international law enforcement agency.
