Nigerian actress Iyabo Ojo has provided an update on the ongoing investigation into the death of late singer, Mohbad.
The actress, through her foundation, Pinkies Foundation for the Empowerment of Young Persons, Women, and those with Disabilities, along with the Concerned Citizens of Nigeria, sought further information regarding the toxicology results.
In a recent statement, Iyabo Ojo revealed that they had inquired about the toxicology result and were informed that the file had been sent to the Lagos State Ministry of Justice, Department of Public Prosecution. However, there has been no feedback on the test results from the authorities.
The police authorities have clarified that the case file is no longer under their purview, indicating that it is now awaiting prosecution.
In her words, ” *UPDATE ON MOHBAD CASE*
We, the Pinkies Foundation for the Empowerment of Young Persons, Women and those with Disabilities and the Concerned Citizens of Nigeria (including notable entertainment gurus, reputable Nollywood artistes and host of others)
May we most respectfully inform the general public that, sequel to the release of the police investigation report, we sought for further information in respect of the toxicology result and we were made to understand the file had been remitted to the Lagos State Ministry of Justice, Department of Public Prosecution with no feedback on the test.
Consequently, the Police authorities have made it clear that the case file is no longer within their purview but awaiting prosecution.
Our dilemma at the moment is hinged on the non-availability of information on the toxicology result.
Taking cognisance of this development, we shall formally write to the Commissioner of Justice and Attorney General of Lagos State, Lagos Department of Public Prosecution, Lagos State Police Command and will also go a step further to copy the Honourable Attorney General of the Federation and Minister for Justice with all other necessary federal and state agencies lawfully empowered to avail us the necessary updates.
We shall also be paying a courtesy visit to these offices to avail the general public in getting familiar with the ensuing development for the purpose of public policy, promotion of public peace, and transparency.
Because every Nigerian life matters,we therefore promise not to relent at getting justice for Mohbad despite the stumbling blocks on our way we have vowed to conquer.
Thank you, #nodistractions #JusticeForMohbad #justforourchildren #Igetcoconuthead
