Omowunmi, the wife of Mohbad, has given her testimony before the Lagos coroner inquest sitting in Ikorodu as part of the inquiry into the death of the singer.
The circumstances surrounding his death have continued to stir up controversies.
Speaking at the court on Tuesday, Wunmi claimed Mohbad sustained an injury at the elbow during a fight with Primeboy, his friend, at a show in Ikorodu.
She said the late singer’s “hand was swollen before the nurse arrived but started feeling uncomfortable after being injected”.
Wunmi also alleged that Mohbad was traumatised to seek medical care at the hospital because the NDLEA harassed him while in their custody.
“When the nurse injected him, he was feeling uncomfortable. The nurse came around 1 p.m. on Tuesday and his hand had begun swelling at that time,” she said.
“He wanted to leave when he finished his performance but everywhere was blocked. He told his friend Primeboy to go tell his brother to tell the bouncer they wanted to leave but they said we should wait for other artistes to finish performing.
“It was Primeboy that came to complain about why would Mohbad’s brother be acting rude to him, that Mohbad should do something but Mohbad said he cannot discipline his brother in public.
“Primeboy and Mohbad started fighting, and I went to get his workers to come and separate them, and by the time I came back, I met that people had separated them already.
“During the fight, Mohbad sustained a minor injury at his elbow when he hit the window of the car. The nurse who injected Mohbad has been treating him for two years. The nurse injected Mohbad on his shoulder.
“After the February 22, 2022, NDLEA incident, Mohbad became fearful and refused to go to the hospital because his head was hit with a gun by NDLEA.
“I was beaten and pushed inside the gutter because I confronted and questioned the NDLEA why they harassed my husband. The NDLEA gave him substance, and ever since then, he has not been himself.”
In February last year, Zinoleesky, a Marlian Records artiste, and Mohbad were arrested by the NDLEA during a raid.
Femi Babafemi, a spokesperson of the NDLEA, had told TheCable Lifestyle that the musicians were arrested alongside four others “after some quantities of Cannabis and Molly were recovered from their apartment and car”.
In September, a source with inside knowledge of the alleged drug raid involving Marlian Records said Mohbad was never detained by the NDLEA.
Idowu Owohunwa, the Lagos state police commissioner, earlier said the law enforcement agency had asked the NDLEA to respond to Mohbad’s allegation.
Reacting, the agency said it responded to the police enquiry on September 28.
