The police in Lagos have identified Feyisayo Ogedengbe, the auxiliary nurse who administered an injection to Mohbad, as “the prime suspect” in the singer’s death.
Mohbad died on September 12 and was buried the next day.
The circumstances surrounding his death have continued to stir up controversies on social media.
Several suspects — including Ogedengbe, Naira Marley, Sam Larry and Primeboy — are currently in police custody with respect to the investigation into Mohbad’s death.
Joseph Aloba, Mohbad’s dad, previously said his son passed away after receiving an injection administered by the auxiliary nurse.
During a press briefing on Friday afternoon, Idowu Owohunwa, the Lagos state police commissioner, gave updates on the ongoing investigation into the singer’s demise.
Owohunwa said the “auxiliary nurse administered multiple and highly potent injections which triggered an immediate reaction that eventually occasioned the death of Mohbad”.
The commissioner said the injections, consisting of tetanus toxoid, paracetamol, and cetrazone were administered at Mohbad’s residence.
“The Auxiliary Nurse who was contacted and invited by Ayobami Sadiq (a.k.a Spending), a friend to Mohbad, on 11th September, 2023 to treat the singer at the deceased’s residence at Lekki-Lagos,” the Lagos CP said.
“She eventually came on Tuesday, 12th September, 2023 and administered three different injections which are believed to have occasioned the chain of reactions that directly resulted in the death of the singer.
“She is the Principal Suspect in the death of Mohbad.
“She acknowledged that it was the injections that she administered on the deceased that triggered the reactions which eventually led to Mohbad’s death. Other expert opinions and witnesses statements corroborated her admittance.
“Her actions of administering doses of Tetanus Toxoid, Paracetamol (IV) and Ceftriaxone injection (IV) on Mohbad at his residence on 12th September, 2023 immediately and directly triggered the reactions (including vomiting, goose bumps, convulsion) that eventually resulted in the singer’s death.
“This criminal liability is further heightened granted the evidential fact that as an auxiliary nurse, she is not qualified to administer such medications or function as a qualified nurse. She also did this in a non-clinical environment and in a professionally negligent manner that negated standard medical protocols.”
