Mohbad’s Death: Police Announces Principal Suspects In Death Of Singer As Autopsy Result Is Awaited

The Nigerian Police Force’s Lagos Command has identified some of the main suspects in the death of Mohbad as being the auxiliary nurse Feyisayo Ogedengbe, his friend and fellow performer Ibrahim Owoduni, aka Prime Boy, and another friend Ayobami Sadiq.

Idowu Owohunwa, the commissioner of the Lagos State Police, disclosed this to the media while briefing them on the ongoing investigation into the singer’s death. According to Owohunwa, the police questioned 26 persons, and five suspects have already been named, taken into custody, and questioned about their suspected roles in the series of incidents that resulted in the singer’s murder.

He said,

“Miss Feyisayo Ogedengbe is the auxiliary nurse who was contacted and invited by Ayobami Sadiq, aka Spending, a friend of Mohbad, on September 11, 2023, to treat the singer at the deceased’s residence at Lekki-Lagos.

“She eventually came on Tuesday, September 12, 2023, and administered three different injections, which are believed to have occasioned the chain of reactions that directly resulted in the singer’s death.

“She is the principal suspect in the death of Mohbad.

“She acknowledged that it was the injections she administered on the deceased that triggered the reactions, which eventually led to Mohbad’s death. Other expert opinions and witness statements corroborated her admittance.

“Her actions of administering doses of Tetanus Toxoid, Paracetamol (IV) and Ceftriaxone injection (IV) on Mohbad at his residence on September 12, 2023, immediately and directly triggered the reactions (including vomiting, goose bumps, convulsion) that eventually resulted in the singer’s death.

“This criminal liability is further heightened granted the evidential fact that as an auxiliary nurse, she is not qualified to administer such medications or function as a qualified nurse.

“She also did this in a non-clinical environment and in a professionally negligent manner that negated standard medical protocols.”

Owohunwa stated that the deceased and Prime Boy got into an altercation soon after the former’s last gig in Ikorodu, Lagos. He stated:

“At the end of his performance at about 11 pm, as he made to exit the venue with his entourage, he discovered that his vehicle had been blocked by other vehicles, while some of his fans and ‘area boys’ also mobbed him. Mohbad, who from witnesses’ evidence, was said to be tipsy and hyperactive, became infuriated and as he attempted to come down to clear the road, Ibrahim, his friend, prevailed on him not to for security reasons. This further infuriated Mohbad and degenerated into a hot argument and physical fight between the two of them. In the course of an attempt to punch Ibrahim, Mohbad missed and smashed the rare window of the Prado Jeep they were being conveyed in, causing him an injury on his forehand, and he bled profusely. Eventually, the situation was brought under control, and they all departed for the Lekki residence of Mohbad excluding Ibrahim.”

According to the Lagos CP, Mohbad’s hand began to swell, and despite his wife and friends’ repeated pleadings, he allegedly refused to go to the hospital to have it examined and treated. According to the authorities, there is proof connecting Naira Marley and Sam Larry to cyberbullying, physical harassment, a threat to life, and an assault against the late Mohbad.

He said,

“While Naira Marley and Sam Larry denied allegations of criminal liability in the death of Mohbad and pleaded an alibi to justify their not being complicit in the incident that occurred between September 10 and 12, 2023, there are ample electronic and credible witness pieces of evidence linking them to cyberbullying, a threat to life, assault occasioning harm, and conduct likely to cause a breach of the peace against the deceased in his lifetime.”

The CP also stated that the Directorate of Public Prosecutions has received papers pertaining to the investigation for legal counsel. The death of Mohbad shocked the Nigerian music scene and caused widespread indignation and rumours, with many calling for justice for Mohbad and his family.
