The police in Lagos have issued a stern warning that its “hands will not be forced” in the ongoing probe to unravel circumstances surrounding the death of the late rapper, Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad.
Mohbad died on Tuesday, September 12 in a mysterious manner that has led to several Nigerians demanding justice, calling for a thorough investigation into the matter.
In a statement on Saturday, the Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, said that the investigation will not be turned into a media trial.
Hundeyin stressed that the police will follow laid down protocols, amid calls by several people for certain people to be questioned and the result of Mohbad’s autopsy to be made public.
“This is not trial by media. The right questions will be asked and answered at the right place, before the right people, but most importantly, at the right time.”
“Our hands will not be forced. Nonetheless, rest assured that every single homicide investigation protocol is being followed, as there is zero tolerance for shoddiness,” he said.
