The protesters also held placards with various inscriptions like “#JusticeForMohbad,” #WhoOffLight and #RIPMohbad among others.
It was gathered that the protest — which caused gridlock — was under police scrutiny.
Davido earlier announced that he would be returning to Nigeria from the United Kingdom to join a candlelight procession in honour of Mohbad on Thursday.
Similarly, Iyabo Ojo, the Nollywood actress, revealed plans to lead a team of protesters on Wednesday to demand justice for the late singer.
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.
