Some youths have taken over the Panseke area of Abeokuta, Ogun State capital, demanding justice for the late Nigerian singer, Ilerioluwa Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad.

The youths who gathered in their numbers at the skating ground arena in Abeokuta wore blacks and carried placards with inscriptions like #JusticeforMohbad and #WhoOffLight, among others.

Also, youths believed to be fans of Mohbad stormed Effurun Road in Delta State, bearing placards to demand justice for the late singer.

These peaceful rallies are coming days after a protest was launched in Ikorodu, Lagos, in seeking justice for Mohbad.

Mohbad died last Tuesday and was buried on Wednesday in Ikorodu, and his death has attracted concerns, as some accused the owner of Marlian Records and singer, Azeez Fashola, popularly known as Naira Marley.

Renowned artistes have taken to social media to join in demanding justice for the late music sensation.

The Lagos State Police Command has vowed to probe his death, and it inaugurated a special investigation team on Monday.

Manwhile, the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has directed the state Police Command, in partnership with the Department of State Service (DSS) to launch a major investigation into the circumstances surrounding his death with the aim of ensuring justice.

Sanwo-Olu’s directive was announced on Tuesday, in a statement by the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Gbenga Omotoso.
