According to Iyabo Ojo, a Nigerian actress, the nurse who injected Mohbad before he died has been arrested.
Mohbad, a street singer, died on September 12 and was buried the next day.
Mohbad’s father, Joseph Aloba, disclosed on September 14 that his son died after receiving an injection from an auxiliary nurse.
The Lagos state police command established a 13-member special investigative team to look into the singer’s death.
The Lagos governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has also invited the Department of State Services (DSS) to participate in the ongoing inquiry into Mohbad’s death.
Ojo first proposed a Wednesday rally from Oba Akran to the Lagos state executive and legislative buildings.
She later canceled the demonstration owing to concerns about rowdy elements disrupting the event.
The actress, however, added that her team will continue to visit Lagos state government offices to lodge their complaints.
Ojo gave an update on Mohbad’s case during an Instagram live session.
She verified that arrests had been made, including the nurse who had been caring for Mohbad.
She also said more arrests are underway, adding that police authorities are calling on “some people to turn themselves in”.
“They are going to do the autopsy… they have made some arrests,” she said.
“The nurse has been arrested, that I know. That is the only information I can give you right now… they have arrested some people. They are asking some people to turn themselves in.”
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.
During the briefing, which included Ojo, Owohunwa stated that the police had written invitation letters to persons of interest in the singer’s death, inviting them to come forward and clear their names.
The Lagos police chief warned that anyone who did not accept the invitation would 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).
Thousands of fans have taken to the streets around the country to demand justice for the late musician, with some organizing candlelight procession in his honor.
Davido, the Afrobeats singer, has confirmed his return from the United Kingdom to participate in Mohbad’s candlelight procession in Nigeria.
