The Lagos State Police Command, have exhumed the remains of singer Mohbad and are set to begin autopsy.
Mohbad died last week in unclear circumstances with Nigerians protesting and calling for justice for Mohbad.
While the rapper, known officially as Ilerioluwa Olademeji Aloba, was buried less than a day after his death, the spokesman of the Lagos State Police Command Benjamin Hundeyin said Mohbad’s remains have been exhumed.
“Exhumation completed. Autopsy to commence,” he tweeted on Thursday afternoon, days after the police began a probe into the death of the former Naira Marley signee.
The Inspector General of Police (IGP) Kayode Egbetokun had ordered an investigation into the rapper’s passage, asking the Lagos State police authorities to carry out a thorough probe.
Spokesman of the Nigerian Police Force (NPF) Muyiwa Adejobi quoted the IGP as issuing a “direct and urgent directive to the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, instructing him to initiate a swift and comprehensive investigation into the tragic passing” of the singer.
