The Lagos State Council of The National Association of Nigeria Nurses and Midwives (NANNM) has stated that the individual arrested for allegedly injecting the late musician Mohbad is not a registered nurse.

The association, through its Lagos State Secretary, Toba Odumosu, also cautioned the media to verify the qualifications and professional status of individuals before labeling them as healthcare professionals.

Mohbad, also known as Ilerioluwa Aloba, died on September 12, and his father, Joseph Aloba, claimed that the singer passed away after receiving an injection from 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.”

The Police have exhumed Mohbad’s body for autopsy and have promised a thorough investigation into his death.

The Lagos State Council of NANNM expressed their condolences to the family and stressed the importance of professionalism in reporting and conducting the ongoing investigation.

“The National Association of Nigeria Nurses and Midwives, Lagos State Council, expresses its deepest condolences to the family and associates of the late musician, Ilerioluwa Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad, during this difficult time. Our thoughts and prayers are with them as we mourn his tragic passing.

“We fully support the ongoing investigation into the circumstances surrounding his death and urge the relevant authorities to leave no stone unturned in the pursuit of justice for him.

“However, we must stress the importance of professionalism in reporting and conducting this investigation. NANNM is closely monitoring the situation with keen interest.

“Our preliminary investigations indicate that the individual reportedly taken into custody by the police for providing care to Mohbad is not a registered Nurse.

“We emphasise the critical need to verify the qualifications and professional status of individuals before labelling them as healthcare professionals.”

The council said it was regrettable that Nigeria’s healthcare system faces significant regulatory challenges, leading to the presence of unqualified individuals performing medical roles they are not trained for.

In Nigeria, to be recognised as a Nurse, one must complete a rigorous five-year Bachelor of Nursing Science programme at a university, followed by an additional year of internship.

Alternatively, one can undergo training at an accredited School/College of Nursing and become registered and licensed by the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria.

“We wish to clarify that the term ‘Auxiliary Nurse’ has no place within Nigeria’s healthcare system or its laws. An individual is either a qualified Nurse or an unqualified individual performing tasks beyond their competence.

“Furthermore, we call on the investigating authorities and the media to exercise caution and accuracy in their reporting during this investigation.

“We will not tolerate any misrepresentation of Nurses and the Nursing profession.

“We demand that all media outlets that inaccurately reported the arrest of a Nurse take immediate corrective action to rectify their stories,” the body added.
