The Lagos State Police had earlier on Thursday confirmed that it had exhumed the corpse of the late rapper/singer.

Meanwhile, Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Tuesday invited the Department of State Services (DSS) to join the investigation of the death of Mohbad.

Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Gbenga Omotoso, said in a statement that the Lagos state government has noted the developments that have followed the death of Mohbad.

Omotoso said that the government has pleaded with all those who may have vital information that may assist the investigation process to provide the investigating team with such information.

He added that the government has also appealed 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.

The government spokesman has further made an appeal to all friends and fans of the deceased to stay calm and refrain from making inflammatory utterances and reaching prejudicial conclusions on this matter.

The Lagos State government also commiserated with his family and fans with Omotosho saying they feel the pains of losing such a talented and promising young man, who made a name for himself in a highly competitive industry.

The Police special investigative team that has been saddled with the responsibility of unravelling the death of Mohbad has been tasked with issuing an interim report within two weeks, starting from Monday, September 18 when it was inaugurated.
