Lagos CP Blames EndSARS Rioters for Delay in Mohbad Case Investigation

Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Adegoke Fayoade, on Wednesday, said the command was yet to receive the much-awaited toxicology report conducted on the late singer, Ilerioluwa Alboa, also known as MohBad, three months after the singer’s death.

Fayoade disclosed this while fielding questions from Crime Reporters at the Command Headquarters during the parade of suspects on Wednesday.

He said the command was still awaiting the report, blaming the delay on the destruction of a state-of-the-art laboratory built by the state government during the EndSARS protest.

Wiseloaded recalls that MohBad, 27, died in September last year under controversial circumstances and was buried the next day.

The nurse who administered a vaccine to him was arrested after she was found to be unlicensed.

In response to public outcry, the police set up a panel to probe his death. Mohbad’s corpse was exhumed and some tests were carried out.

However, the test results of the autopsy carried out on his body have not been released.

The Commissioner said, “You will recall that some years back, the Lagos State government built a state-of-the-art laboratory, however quite unfortunately, the same laboratory worth millions of naira was destroyed by urchins during the EndSars protest. If that laboratory was not destroyed we wouldn’t have had cause to send the sample from the deceased to the US for toxicology examination.

“It is sad to say that we are yet to receive the toxicology report. We are still awaiting the arrival of the report from the US. We will make public the outcome when we receive it” he said.
