A Lagos State Government’s Delegation led by the Deputy Governor of Lagos State, Dr Obafemi Hamzat, has visited the mother of Ileri Oluwa Oladimeji Aloba, also known as MohBad to condole her over the Afrobeat Star’s death.
Hamzat assured the family of the deceased singer that Justice will be done on this matter, while announcing that the Government will assist the family in all ways possible and that Mohbad’s 5-month-old child will be well taken care of by the State.
Other members of the delegation include, the Chief of Staff to the Governor, Tayo Ayinde; Commissioner for Youth, Mobolaji Ogunlende; Commisioner for Information, Gbenga Omotoso and the Special Adviser on Tourism, Idris Aregbe.
Meanwhile, the state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, earlier today, invited the Department of Security Services to join the probe of the death of MohBad.
This was contained in a statement signed by Lagos state Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Gbenga Omotoso, on Tuesday.
Mohbad, a former signee of Naira Marley at Marlian Records, died last Tuesday at the age of 27.

In addition to the police special investigative team in Lagos to probe the death of Mohbad, “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.”
