The Social Democratic Party (SDP) on Monday urged aggrieved fans to shun violence over the sudden death of a Nigerian musician, Ilerioluwa Aloba, aka Mohbad.

Its South-West zonal secretary, Femi Olaniyi, told journalists in Lagos that the party commiserates with the family and associates of the late singer

“Let all the aggrieved wait for outcome of the investigation ongoing by the security, ” said Mr Olaniyi. “Nobody should take law into his or her hand under any guise, no matter how hurtful it is, issues surrounding the death of the singer. ”

His appeal comes as Nigerians have continued to seek justice for the singer’s death. Music lovers were on September 12 hit with the news of the singer’s death. 

Mohbad, 27, died a few weeks after he had petitioned the Assistant Inspector-General of Police heading the Force Criminal Investigation Department, Lagos, over threats to his life by socialite Sam Larry and thugs who allegedly attacked him with guns, cutlasses and other weapons while shooting a video with Zlatan. 

Mr Olaniyi, who is also the Lagos State chairman of SDP, urged the Nigeria Police to do due diligence to unravel all secrets that led to the death of the young musician.

“We want the police to display professionalism in their dealings and investigation, and do us proud in all the operations to unravel issues around the death of Mohbad.

“We want the police to do a good job that will make Nigerians, especially aggrieved associates of the singers, to have confidence in the police again.

“Justice must be done diligently without any form of interest from the rebellion,” Mr Olaniyi said.

The Commissioner of Police in Lagos State, Idowu Owohunwa, has constituted a special team to unravel the cause of Mohbad’s death.
