Mohbad’s father, Joseph Aloba, on September 14 claimed that the singer passed away after receiving an injection administered by an auxiliary nurse.
He said: “According to what I heard from people, I do not believe in that. The only thing I can think of is maybe this auxiliary nurse that used to treat people which is a very bad idea. I do not know the kind of level the woman is.
“They said they called her to give him an injection and that is a very bad idea and that injection can result in any length. He had wounds but I do not know the kind of wounds he had.”
