The 2023 Presidential candidate of the Action Alliance Congress and Convener of “#RevolutionNow,” Omoyele Sowore, has berated governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State, over the invitation of the Department of States Services, to participate in the ongoing probe on the death of a popular hip-hop singer, Ileri-Oluwa Oladimeji Imole Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad.
Speaking through a post on his X handle on Tuesday, September 19, 2023, while reacting to Sanwo-Olu’s statement that the DSS has been invited to collaborate with other security agencies, to boost the investigation, said no serious person, including those in the government, would employ police investigation into a serious matter of such credibility.
According to him, the personnel and tools for police investigation, have over the years, been bastardized and monetized that they allegedly end up to cover up crimes, instead of solving them.
Sowore further noted that such investigations do not end up anywhere, alleging that those who call for investigations are in bed with the suspects.
It would be recalled that Mohbad died in unclear circumstances last week Tuesday, and many reactions and revelations trailing his death, have warranted Nigerians calling for the probe of his untimely death.
Many people have however been pointing accusing fingers at his former record label boss, Azeez Fashola, known as Naira Marley, as well as his cohorts, as the people behind the singer’s death, due to many threats to his life from the former boss who he parted ways with, last year.
However, governor Sanwo-Olu in his reaction on Tuesday, assured Nigerians that justice will be served in the circumstances that led to his death, noting that he had invited the DSS, to join the probe.
While reacting to the development, Sowore tweeted: “You see, no serious person(s), including those in govt, would take a @PoliceNG “investigation” into any matter with any modicum of seriousness or credibility because over the years the tools and personnel for investigations have been so bastardized and monetized that they end up helping to cover up crimes instead of solving them, even at that, it remains to be seen how the DSS or any other security agency would uncover a crime in Nigeria when those calling for investigations are in bed with likely suspects in these matter.
