Gov. Biodun Oyebanji of Ekiti, has urged the police to unravel the mysteries surrounding the death of a singer, Ilerioluwa Aloba aka Mohbad.
This is contained in a statement issued in Ado-Ekiti on Tuesday and signed by the Governor’s Special Adviser on Media, Mr Yinka Oyebode.
According to the governor, the minimum the country owes the deceased and his family is justice.
“This can only come through a thorough investigation of the circumstances leading to his death as well as various revelations that came out thereafter.”
“Our condolences go to the family and fans of the late singer, Mohbad.
“We feel their pains at this crucial moment and join other well- meaning Nigerians to demand a thorough investigation into the circumstances leading to his death”, he said.
Oyebanji said this became necessary as some Ekiti youths planed to hold a procession in Ado-Ekiti, the State capital to mourn the late singer and demand justice for him.
He described a 27-year-old musician as a talented singer, who had already carved a niche for himself in the entertainment world with several hit songs to his credit.
The governor said the death of the singer at the peak of his career and the circumstances surrounding it were highly regrettable.
While extending condolences to members of the late singer’s families as well as his fans worldwide, the governor urged the police to investigate the death and ensure that justice was done.
