    Ogundoyin thanked the demonstrators for standing up for one of their own, saying that their peaceful demonstration to demand justice for the late musician was admirable.

    The deceased was a gifted and intensely motivated young artist, the speaker added, whose songs were poetic and melodic, and whose death was heartbreaking and shocking.

    The late singer, who rose from the grass to elegance, demonstrated a strong enthusiasm for music, the speaker continued.


    Ilerioluwa Aloba’s untimely death in unexplained circumstances is regrettable. The Nigeria Police Force’s investigating team must do their duty diligently.

    “Everyone involved in the young man’s death must be looked into, and the reason for his passing must be discovered.

    “Why didn’t the police look into a petition he sent them regarding ongoing threats to his life?

    “There are video footage that show Mohbad being assaulted and bullied, but no one was ever detained or charged at the time.

    He added that despite his gloomy circumstances, “He also made some audio recordings of them, but the security agencies did nothing to secure Mohbad’s life.”

    Ogundoyin characterized the late singer’s death as pitiful and abhorrent.

    Mr. Kunle Eniafe, one of the protest’s organizers, expressed resentment over Mohbad’s demise.

    He pleaded with police to find the killers of the musician immediately.He claimed that unless justice is served, Nigerian youths would hold protests all throughout the nation.
