-Calls for thorough probe into his death


The Senator representing the Lagos East Senatorial District, Senator Tokunbo Abiru, has commiserated with the family and the Nigerian youths over the death of the talented artiste, Mr. Ilerioluwa Aloba, popularly known as ‘Mohbad’.

Abiru, who is the Chairman, Senate Committee on Banking, Insurance and other Financial Institutions, in a statement issued by his media aide, Mr. Enitan Olukotun in Lagos on Wednesday, also urged security agencies to thoroughly investigate the controversies surrounding the deceased’s death and ensure that justice is done.

He described the death of Mohbad as painful and devastating.

“I commiserate with the family, fans of Late Mr. Ilerioluwa Aloba (AKA, Mohbad), and the entire Nigerian youths, on the death of the talented artiste. I am particularly pained that Mohbad succumbed to the cold hands of death when it was time to fully harness the rewards of his creativity and labour of his thriving music career”, Sen. Abiru said.

“Mohbad was one of the biggest success stories that ever came out of Ikorodu. He shattered socio-economic limitations occasioned by his family background, and broke into international limelight in the competitive music industry with hit tracks that gained traction across cultures and climes.

“I join concerned Nigerians, particularly the family of the deceased and Nigerian youths in demanding that thorough investigation should be carried out by the security agencies on the allegations of homicide and justice should be served.

“Let me also inform Nigerians that I have escalated the matter to the leadership of the Nigerian Senate. When the Senate resumes plenary on Tuesday, 26th September, 2023, I will formally present a motion on the need for thorough investigation on the unfortunate death of Mohbad.

“As the Senator representing Lagos East Senatorial District, which also covers Ikorodu, where Mohbad’s family lives, I join in grieving our departed son, brother and friend. Mohbad’s legacies live on. Adieu , The Legend!”, Abiru said.
