Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the governor of Lagos, has invited the operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) to join in the ongoing investigation into the death of Mohbad.
The circumstance surrounding his death has continued to stir up controversies on social media.
On Monday, the Lagos state police command inaugurated a 13-man special investigation team to probe the death of the singer.
Idowu Owohunwa, the Lagos commissioner of police, also vowed to use all legal means to fish out everyone indicted in the case.
Speaking on the investigation, Sanwo-Olu also invited the DSS to “widen the dragnet with inter-agency collaboration and use of best-in-class technology to unearth the truth”.
In a statement on Tuesday by Gbenga Omotoso, the state’s commissioner for information, the state government directed anyone with vital information on the singer’s death to assist the investigating team.
“Further to this and to boost the investigation, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu has invited the Department of State Services (DSS) to join the investigation and widen the dragnet with inter-agency collaboration and the use of best-in-class technology to unearth the truth,” the statement reads.
“Consequently, the Department of State Services (DSS) has also joined the investigation so as to get justice for the youngster, his family and teeming fans. The Government pleads with all those who may have vital information that may assist the investigation process to avail the investigating team of such.
“The government also appeals to the investigating team to guarantee the confidentiality and protection of all witnesses who may come forward with vital information or indicative evidence that may assist the process.
“Besides, the grieving family should be allowed to mourn their loss in peace. It is, indeed, a difficult time for us all – the government, the family and MohBad’s fans. Any action that can aggravate the grief should be avoided.
“The Police and the DSS have been admonished to brief the public on their efforts periodically.”
The governor also appealed to friends and fans of the late singer to desist from making inflammatory utterances and reaching prejudicial conclusions on the issue.
Joseph Aloba, Mohbad’s father, earlier revealed that his son died after an auxiliary nurse was invited to inject him.
Omowunmi, the partner of Mohbad, also recounted the singer’s struggles when he was alive.
The police earlier mentioned the possibility of exhuming Mohbad’s corpse.
