Police asked celebrities and bloggers to stop utilizing Mohbad’s passing for follower-baiting or content farming.
Bloggers, social media influencers, and celebrities have all been issued a warning by the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) to desist from interfering unduly with the ongoing investigations into the death of the late musician, Ilerioluwa Aloba, better known as Mohbad.
On his old Twitter account, X, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, the Force Public Relations Officer, posted a warning.
The spokesperson for the police issued a further warning against attempting to utilize the artist’s passing for attention-getting or content harvesting.
He noted that the police or any security agency may be forced to invite anyone detected making positive remarks on the matter to corroborate or testify in the case, but he also cautioned the public to be careful with their words regarding the ongoing inquiry.
“I have warned the so-called bloggers and celebs to allow us to do our work. They should not use Mohbad’s death to cruise or mobilize followers. They need to wait for the outcome of the investigation.
“Anyone who makes comments (affirmatively) on the issue might be invited by the police or any security agency to corroborate or testify in the case. You’d better be careful and allow the law to take its course. The law is wide and complex and could, at the same time, be flexible. Be warned,” Adejobi’s post on Friday, September 22, 2023,
The police have completed the autopsy procedure for the deceased and promised to provide further information to the public regarding the outcome as soon as the results are available.
This came after his body was exhumed in the Ikorodu area of Lagos State on Thursday. However, contrary to the speculations that his remains had been returned to the grave after the autopsy, police confirmed that Mohbad’s corpse had been deposited at the mortuary.
