NDLEA Finally Replies Police Over Mohbad’s Death [FULL LETTER DETAILS]

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has provided a response to the police investigation into the purported arrest and custody of the late musician Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba, alias MohBad, StechiteGist Media reports.

The organization was reacting to a comment made by Idowu Owohunwa, the Lagos State police commissioner.

At a news conference on Friday, CP Owohunwa disclosed that the police had not yet heard from the NDLEA regarding statements made on social media about the alleged arrest and detention of Mohbad.

In a well-known video, Mohbad claimed that the Agency had detained him and given him an unidentified substance to ingest, which had a negative impact on his health.

But in a swift reaction in a statement titled ‘Mohbad: NDLEA responded to police inquiry since September 28, 2023,’ the agency’s spokesperson, Femi Babafemi, said NDLEA had since responded to the police.

The statement read: “Following media inquiries on the claim by the Lagos state police command at a press conference on Friday 6th October 2023 that it was yet to get a response from the NDLEA on social media allegations bordering on alleged arrest and detention of the late artiste, Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba, aka MohBad, the Agency will like to state that indeed its response was sent and received by the police since Thursday 28th September 2023.

“Indeed, to show the seriousness with which the Agency treated the issue, our formal response dated Thursday, 28th September 2023, was sent by flight to Lagos, delivered and received by the police the same Thursday, 28th September.

“The summary of our response is reproduced below for the benefit of the inquiring public: “We also heard the unsubstantiated allegation on social media that Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba, aka MohBad, was arrested and detained by NDLEA on the 24th of February 2022 and given a substance to drink. In response to this allegation, we wish to state categorically that MohBad was never arrested, neither was he ever detained in the custody of the NDLEA on the said date or any other date before or after. The foregoing being the case, the issue of giving him any substance to drink does not arise.”

“A copy of the acknowledged letter is attached to this clarification.”
