Mohbad: Police Speak on Involving Interpol and Declaring Suspects Wanted

The Lagos state police command has released information about its investigation into Mohbad’s death.

The 27-year-old rising star died on September 12 and was buried the following day.

The circumstances surrounding his death have sparked debate on social media.

At a press conference on Wednesday, the state commissioner of police, Idowu Owohunwa, stated that the force will meticulously investigate every piece of information, person, or location associated to Mohbad’s death.

He stated that the police had issued letters to those of interest in the singer’s death, inviting them to come forward and clear their reputations.

The Lagos police chief warned that anyone who did not respond to the invitation will be labeled wanted.

Owohunwa further stated that if persons of interest in the investigation are not in Nigeria, the force will seek the assistance of the International Criminal Police Organization (Interpol).

“All pieces of Information, all personalities, all centers linked to it would be reviewed within the radar of our delegation. Mohbad’s case should be utilised to save the upcoming or those that are still educating bullying in silence,” he said.

“Steps have been taken, contacts have been made, formal letters sent and we have started the process of even effecting arrest. And everybody that is remotely connected or directly connected, we have listed them all out and we have established contact with them.

“If they say there is an allegation against you, you have a choice. Come and clear your name. If you refuse to do that, we have options; the first option is to declare you wanted. The second option is to deploy our interpol teams wherever you are in this world.

“The DCO, the OCSID should immediately now extend police protection to the family of Mohbad.”

The meeting, which was monitored by HowNG via Instagram live, had #JusticeForMohBad campaigners like Iyabo Ojo, Foluke Daramola, and Kiekie among others in attendance.

Ojo had already planned a rally from Oba Akran to the Lagos state executive and legislative buildings on Wednesday.

The actress eventually canceled the gathering due to “law enforcement agents’ reservations that it could be hijacked by unscrupulous persons and miscreants.”

On Monday, the Lagos Police Department established a 13-man special investigative team to look into the singer’s death.

The Lagos governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has also requested DSS agents to participate in the ongoing investigation into the singer’s death.
