Olumuyiwa Adejobi, PRO of the Nigeria Police Force, says they are waiting on Bella Shmurda to give them information about Mohbad’s death.
According to the PRO of police, the information that will be given to them by singer Bella Shmurda, a close friend of late rapper Mohbad, will aid their inquiry.
Gistreel.com had reported that fast rising rapper Mohbad died in a controversial manner on Tuesday. On Thursday, authorities announced that they had opened an investigation into the singer’s death.
The police department has also asked for anyone with valuable information, particularly friends and family members of the late musician, to come forward.
Kemi Olunloyo, a controversial self-styled investigative journalist, gave Bella Shmurda a 48-hour ultimatum on Saturday to go to the police and speak up.
“Bella Shmurda,” she wrote on her X account. I’m giving you 48 hours to report to @PoliceNG and speak with @Princemoye1 or to force CID Ikoyi.”
Adejobi, a police spokesperson, quoted her message with the comment, “I am expecting to hear from him.”
In an interview, Bella Shmurda stated that Mohbad attempted suicide following a falling out with Naira Marley’s record label, Marlian Music. He also claimed that the late artist was being threatened.
