The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Idowu Owohunwa, has assured Nigerians that the report on MohBad’s death will be ready in two weeks.
The Lagos Police boss stated this when a team of entertainers led by actress Iyabo Ojo paid him a visit at his office on Wednesday.
Ms Ojo, Foluke Daramola, Kiekie, Chioma, and other stars accompanied by legal representatives met with the Commissioner of Police to make several appeals and raise important issues related to the tragic passing of Mohbad, as well as concerns regarding cyberbullying on social media.
In his response, Owohunwa expressed gratitude for their commitment to seeking justice for the late Afrobeats singer.
The commissioner revealed an ongoing collaboration with the state government to initiate a coroner inquest, adhering to due legal procedures. He outlined the protocol for dealing with suspects once evidence is cleared.
“We are looking for justice, I have related to several groups. Not everyone is looking for justice. What you represent is societal justice. I appreciate you. I think you have set a standard. We agree to walk in partnership to deliver justice, You have given me the courage and assurance for a stable state,” he began.
“One thing is that under my watch in Lagos, whether Mohbad or any low-level citizen, I stand for justice. The farthest we can go is by much evidential quality.
“We are working out the coroner inquest with the state government, it has a legal process. Let’s follow due process. Speaking on the arrest of the suspects, he said that once evidence is cleared, the first tool to use is to declare them wanted and the second tool is the Interpol.
“You should get full information and results about Mohbad’s death in two weeks. We are working on the videos as it gives us a wider picture. Give us the space of two weeks,” he assured.
Owohunwa pledged his unwavering dedication to upholding justice for all citizens, irrespective of their social status.
The Police Commissioner revealed ongoing efforts to establish a state-of-the-art complaint response unit in Lagos, designed to streamline and digitize the reporting process, making it accessible from the comfort of one’s home.
