Thousands of youths across cities in Nigeria have continued to stage protests in demand for justice over the death of Mohbad.


Born Ilerioluwa Aloba, a former Marlian Records signee, died on September 12 and was buried the next day.

The circumstance surrounding the 27-year-old’s death has continued to spark controversies on social media.

Tuesday’s protests saw thousands of Nigerian youths storm the streets with placards while others staged candlelight processions in honour of Mohbad.


Some of the placards read #JusticeForMohbad, #WhoOffLight and #RIPMohbad” among others.

Protesters converged at the Panseke area of Abeokuta to register their annoyance over Mohbad’s death while others gathered in some parts of Ondo to demand a thorough investigation into the matter.

The protests also spread to more cities like Ado-Ekiti and Agege, Akure, and Asaba where some youths gathered to light up their candles in honour of the late singer.



It is believed that the protests will continue through the week as supporters of Mohbad from Ibadan and some parts of Lagos also announced dates for their demonstrations.

Davido earlier said he would be returning to Nigeria from the United Kingdom to join a candlelight procession in Lekki to honour Mohbad on Thursday.

On Monday, the Lagos state police command inaugurated a 13-man special investigation team to probe the death of the singer.

Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the Lagos governor, also invited operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) to join in the ongoing investigation into the singer’s death.
