How Mohbad’s fight with Primeboy resulted to his death — Lagos CP
The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, CP Idowu Owohunwa, has disclosed that the death of late rapper, Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba also known as Mohbad, was a result of mismanagement of the injury he sustained after a physical fight with his childhood friend, Ibrahim Owodunni also as Primeboy, in Ikorodu.
CP Owohunwa revealed this at a press briefing on the state of the investigation into the rapper’s death on Friday.
According to the Lagos CP, Mohbad and Primeboy had a physical fight at the end of the rapper’s last show in Ikorodu.
He disclosed that the injury sustained from the fight, however, was not properly managed, which later resulted in his untimely death.
“At the end of the show, Mohbad and Ibrahim were engaged in a violent fight, during which Mohbad got injured. The management of the injury subsequently resulted in his death. So he is being treated as a suspect.”.
According to the Commissioner, Mohbad was brought to the hospital lifeless and was declared dead on September 12 by the attending physicians.
The Police chief said the auxiliary nurse (Feyisayo Ogedemgbe) was called to inject the singer at his home by Mohbad’s friend Ayobami Sodiq Isiaka, aka Spending.
Ogedemgbe gave the singer three injections that are believed to have resulted in a series of events that led to the singer’s death.
“Auxiliary nurse administered multiple and highly potent injections which reacted rapidly and eventually occasioned the death of Mohbad.
“At about 14:35hrs of 12th September 2023, Miss Feyisayo (nurse Ogedemgbe) eventually arrived. Armed with one pack of Ceftriaxone injection, one paracetamol injection…. several needles, and syringes. Mohbad began vomiting and developed goosebumps after the injections,” Owohunwa said.
Meanwhile, the Police have also stated out the roles played by other suspects in Mohbad’s death.
The other suspects include Primeboy, who knew Mohbad from childhood.
The police commissioner revealed that Primeboy and Mohbad went to a concert together on September 10, which a vital misunderstanding occured between the two.
The ensuing fight from the altercation caused harm to the late singer.
“The management of the injury subsequently resulted in his death,” Owohunwa said.
Sam Larry, whose actual name is Samson Balogun, was detained and is still in custody over his role in the Afrobeats star’s death. He is being questioned for bullying and violence.
Owohunwa further explained that Abdul-Aziz Fashola, aka Naira Marley, was also detained and is still in custody due to accusations against him.
