FCT - Abuja-based human rights lawyer, Pelumi Olajengbesi, has urged the police authorities to ensure justice is served in the ongoing investigation over the death of the late singer Ilerioluwa Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad.
Olajengbesi said it would be unheard of for justice not to be served after conducting an autopsy on the exhumed corpse of Mohbad.
He made the call in a statement issued via his Facebook page on Friday, September 22.

"Let it not be said that after the autopsy conducted on Mohbad's remains on Thursday, September 21, 2023, justice won't eventually be served by the 13-man police investigation committee on the matter," Olajengbesi said.

Police must deliver justice on Mohbad's death
The human rights lawyer called on the police to ensure their investigation is top-notch as they are expected to deliver on this case.
He urged them not to spare those persons in their probe.
"In the case of Mohbad, fingers have been pointed in the direction of certain persons. The police authorities and the Lagos State Government should not spare these persons in their probe. The investigation must be thoroughly done. Culprits should be made to face the music no matter how highly placed or connected they are. There should be no sacred cows.
"Beyond playing to the gallery because of public outcry, the police must deliver. Justice must be served. For social misbehaviour only abounds when justice is asleep. And this is dangerous for our nation."

The state police spokesperson, Benjamin Hundeyin, disclosed this in a post on X, formerly Twitter, @BenHundeyin.
