Contrary to widespread media reports and online rumors, the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has confirmed that the popular singer Ilerioluwa Aloba, known as Mohbad, was never arrested or detained by the agency. NDLEA spokesperson Femi Babafemi emphasized that the allegations and social media speculation claiming otherwise are baseless and without evidence.

The agency firmly stated that Mohbad had no involvement with them on February 24, 2022, or any other date prior or following.

Therefore, the allegation of giving him a substance to drink is completely unfounded.

In addition, the NDLEA clarified that they have already provided a response to the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Idowu Owohunwa, regarding their inquiry into the singer’s death, contrary to the Commissioner’s claim of awaiting feedback.

In a letter dated September 28th and signed by Deputy Commander-General of Narcotics Josephine Obi, the NDLEA confirmed that Mohbad was not arrested or held in their custody.

This information was obtained by our correspondent on Saturday. Babafemi also stated that the NDLEA had responded to the Lagos State Police Command’s media inquiries regarding the alleged arrest and detention of the late artist on social media.

The agency’s response was sent on Thursday, September 28th, and delivered to the police on the same day. The NDLEA took the matter seriously, as evidenced by their prompt response.

During a media briefing on October 6, Owohunwa provided an update on the police investigation. He emphasized the command’s commitment to delivering justice and promised to keep the public informed about any progress made.

This includes sharing updates on the autopsy and toxicology reports, advice from the DPP, feedback from NDLEA, and any other relevant developments in the case.
