The death of Nigeria music artist, Ilerioluwa Aloba, aka Mohbad, has continued to generate more attention from the authorities as governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State, has invited the Department of Security Services—DSS, to join their police counterpart to investigate the death of the artist who died mysteriously last week Tuesday.
The latest development was confirmed in a statement made by the Lagos State commissioner of information and Strategy, Gbenga Omotoso.
In the statement, the state government also condoled with the family and fans of the former Marlian Records signee.
“We feel the pains of losing such a talented and promising young man, who made a name for himself in a highly competitive industry. May the Almighty grant his soul rest and comfort his bereaved family and fans,” the statement reads.
“Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu has invited the DSS to join the investigation and widen the dragnet with inter-agency collaboration and use of best-in-class technology to unearth the truth.
“Mr. Sanwo-Olu has directed that all those who may have played any role whatsoever in any event leading to the death of MohBad be made to face the law after a thorough investigation.
“Consequently DSS has also joined the investigation so as to get justice for the youngster, his family and teeming fans,” it added.
