The Lagos State Police Command has announced that it has completed the exhumation of the body of Nigerian singer, Ilerioluwa Olademeji Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad.
The police had said they would exhume his remains to conduct an autopsy as part of further investigation into his death.
Benjamin Hundeyin, the spokesman for the state police command on Thursday tweeted that the autopsy would now commence following the exhumation.
“Exhumation completed. Autopsy to commence,” he tweeted.
OBSERVERSTIMES earlier reported the arrest of the nurse who treated the late singer and reportedly gave him an injection before his death.
A police source confirmed the investigators had established that the musician was beaten by the same people who always threatened and harangued him, after a show he had in Ikorodu.
He was said to have sustained injuries following the beating, leading him to seek the services of a nurse at home. It was learnt that Mohbad started convulsing after being given injections, one of which was said to be an anti-tetanus shot.
A tetanus shot is a toxoid vaccine that prevents tetanus, a life-threatening bacterial infection.
“Investigators have established that he was beaten by the same people that have always harangued him after his show in Ikorodu and he sustained some injuries.
“When he returned home, he complained of body pains and a nurse was brought to treat him. One of the injections administered to him was an anti-tetanus injection. He started convulsing and died at home after the treatment. He was confirmed dead at the hospital. Meanwhile, the nurse has been arrested; the nurse was arrested three days ago,” the source said.
Mohbad’s father, James Aloba, had said in an interview that he suspected the auxiliary nurse who injected Mohbad before he died.
