The Lagos State National Association of Nigerian Nurses and Midwives has shed light on the tragic passing of the late singer, Ilerioluwa Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad. This revelation comes following statements made by Mohbad’s father, Joseph Aloba, who claimed that his son died after receiving an injection from an auxiliary nurse on September 12.
In an official statement released on Saturday, State Secretary Toba Odumosu addressed the situation.
The National Association of Nigeria Nurses and Midwives, Lagos State Council, expresses its deepest condolences to the associates and family of the late singer, Ilerioluwa Aloba, known as Mohbad, during this difficult time. Our thoughts and prayers are with them as we mourn his tragic passing.
We fully support the ongoing investigation into the circumstances surrounding his death and urge the relevant authorities to leave no stone unturned in the pursuit of justice for him.
However, we must stress the importance of professionalism in reporting and conducting this investigation. NANNM is closely monitoring the situation with keen interest. Our preliminary investigations indicate that the individual reportedly taken into custody by the police for providing care to Mohbad is not a registered Nurse.
“We emphasize the critical need to verify the qualifications and professional status of individuals before labeling them as healthcare professionals.”
This revelation raises questions about the qualifications and professional status of the individual involved in providing care to Mohbad before his untimely demise. The association calls for a thorough investigation to ensure justice is served in this case.
