Joseph Aloba, the father of the late Mohbad, an Afrobeat singer, expressed his discontent with the ongoing police investigations.
In an interview exclusively with Trust TV on Wednesday, Joseph voiced his concerns and urged the government to intensify their efforts to ensure justice is served.
Mohbad passed away on September 12, 2023, and was laid to rest the following day.
Azeez Fashola, also known as Naira Marley, the owner of Marlian Records, Mohbad’s former record label, along with a few others including Sam Larry, were implicated in his untimely death.
However, Naira Marley released a statement on his Instagram account denying any involvement in the incident, asserting his innocence. Sam Larry also denied any connection to the tragedy.
During his interview with Trust TV, Mohbad’s father expressed his dissatisfaction with the progress of the police investigation.
“I am not satisfied with the police investigation. A lot of things have been said outside which are not right. When I carried Mohbad’s body to the police station, I expected that they would follow me to search his house or give me the police (autopsy) report which they had not given me. Those are the areas I am not satisfied with,” he said.
The father stated that he wanted the investigation to be thorough, urging the police to invite people who were living with Mohbad.
“They should ask them questions. Through searching their phones, they would know what killed Mohbad. A lot of people were living with him. So I am not satisfied with the investigation.
“We are still looking for justice….Delay can result in denial. I am begging the government to put more effort so that things can go on fine as people expect,” he added.
