The Nigerian police force has warned that its ongoing investigation into the death of Nigerian fast-rising singer, Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba, also known as Mohbad would not be a trial by media.
Benjamin Hundeyin, Public Relations Officer of the Lagos State Police Command, said this in a post on his X platform formally known as Twitter on Saturday.
“This is not a trial by the media,” he said.
The police officer issued the disclaimer in reaction to ongoing calls by the public against the police for taking too long in its ongoing investigation of the late singer’s demise.
The News.ng had reported that the police had assured Nigerians of its full commitment to investigating the causes of the death of the singer.
The Police have also exhumed the body and announced that they await the result of its examination, while it also called for calm from the general public.
But while many Nigerians have been impatient with the Police citing reasons of lack of trust, Mr Hundeyin said the police hands would not be forced and would do the right thing.
“The right questions will be asked and answered at the right place, before the right people, but most importantly, at the right time.
“Our hands will not be forced. Nonetheless, rest assured that every single homicide investigation protocol is being followed, as there is zero tolerance for shoddiness. Again, this is not a trial by the media.
