The nurse who treated late Nigerian rapper, Ilerioluwa Olademeji Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad before his death has been arrested by the Operatives Nigerian police force.
Famous Nollywood actress, Iyabo Ojo disclosed this in a video message shared via her Instagram page on Wednesday night.
Iyabo Ojo was briefing her fans on the outcome of her visit to the Lagos State Commissioner of Police and the progress on the police investigation of Mohbad’s death.
However, it was also gathered from a police source that the musician was beaten by the same people who always threatened and harangued him, after a show he had in Ikorodu.
He was said to have sustained injuries following the beating, leading him to seek the services of a nurse at home. It was learnt that Mohbad started convulsing after being given injections, one of which was said to be an anti-tetanus shot.
A tetanus shot is a toxoid vaccine that prevents tetanus, a life-threatening bacterial infection.
“Investigators have established that he was beaten by the same people that have always harangued him after his show in Ikorodu and he sustained some injuries.
“When he returned home, he complained of body pains and a nurse was brought to treat him. One of the injections administered to him was an anti-tetanus injection. He started convulsing and died at home after the treatment. He was confirmed dead at the hospital. Meanwhile, the nurse has been arrested; the nurse was arrested three days ago,” the source said.
Iyabo Ojo also stated that other arrests have also been made by the police.
The actress said, “The police have made some arrests [in connection with Mohbad’s death]. The nurse has been arrested. That I know. That’s the only information I can give you right now.
“They have arrested some people. They are asking some people to turn themselves in.”
DAILY GIST reported that Mohbad passed away on Tuesday, 12th September. However, the cause of his death remains controversial.
Mohbad’s father, James Aloba had said in an interview that he suspects the auxiliary nurse who injected Mohbad before he died, stressing that the injection might have complicated his son’s health.
