The Nigeria Police Force has arrested the nurse who treated late Nigerian singer and rapper, Ilerioluwa Olademeji Aloba, professionally known as Mohbad, and reportedly gave him an injection before his death.
A police source who spoke to Pageone under the condition of anonymity revealed that the musician was beaten by the same people who always threatened and harangued him, after a show he had in Ikorodu.
He was said to have sustained injuries following the beating, leading him to seek the services of a nurse at home. It was learnt that Mohbad started convulsing after being given injections, one of which was said to be an anti-tetanus shot.
A tetanus shot is a toxoid vaccine that prevents tetanus, a life-threatening bacterial infection.
“Investigators have established that he was beaten by the same people that have always harangued him after his show in Ikorodu and he sustained some injuries.
“When he returned home, he complained of body pains and a nurse was brought to treat him. One of the injections administered to him was an anti-tetanus injection. He started convulsing and died at home after the treatment. He was confirmed dead at the hospital. Meanwhile, the nurse has been arrested; the nurse the nurse was arrested three days ago,” the source said.
Mohbad’s father, James Aloba, had said in an interview that he suspected the auxiliary nurse who injected Mohbad before he died.
According to him, the injection given to him might have complicated his son’s health.
