Festus Ogun, a well-known human rights lawyer, has formally requested a Coroner’s Inquest into the circumstances surrounding the untimely death of Nigerian singer Mohbad.
Ogun called for a thorough investigation into the tragic death of Mohbad, the former artist under Marlian Records, which is owned by Azeez Faashola, better known as Naira Marley, in an official letter addressed to the Attorney-General of Lagos and shared across his social media platforms on Monday.
Mohbad died on Tuesday at the age of 27 and was laid to rest in Lagos’ Ikorodu neighbourhood on Wednesday, provoking public anxiety and suspicion about the circumstances of his death.
Following his death, disturbing recordings portraying Mohbad being bullied appeared online, quickly gaining traction across multiple media platforms.
Devoted fans of the musician have planned a peaceful parade in his honor on Wednesday, September 20th and Thursday, September 21st.
