Abuja-based human rights lawyer, Pelumi Olajengbesi, has urged the police authorities to ensure justice prevails in the ongoing investigation into the death of the late singer Ilerioluwa Aloba, widely known as Mohbad. Olajengbesi stressed the importance of delivering justice following the recent autopsy conducted on Mohbad’s exhumed remains.
In a statement posted on his Facebook page on Friday, September 22, Olajengbesi called on the police to conduct a thorough and top-notch investigation, leaving no stone unturned. He emphasized that those implicated in the case should not be spared, regardless of their social standing or connections. Olajengbesi highlighted the necessity of holding wrongdoers accountable and ensuring that justice is served.
He stated, “Fingers have been pointed at specific individuals in the Mohbad case. The police and the Lagos State Government must not shy away from investigating these individuals rigorously. The investigation should be comprehensive, and those responsible must face the consequences, without any exceptions. There must be no room for impunity.”
Olajengbesi concluded by underscoring the significance of justice in maintaining social order and preventing misconduct. He called upon the police to deliver a thorough and fair investigation, emphasizing that justice must prevail to safeguard the nation.
Meanwhile, it has been reported that the Lagos State Police Command has successfully exhumed Mohbad’s remains, as confirmed by the state police spokesperson, Benjamin Hundeyin. The next step in the process is to conduct an autopsy on the exhumed corpse.
