Since the death of Mohbad on September 12, 2023, Nigerians have continued to demand justice over the incident, leading to the commencement of the police investigation.

Since the commencement of investigation into the ‘peace’ hitmaker’s death on September 18, the Lagos State Command of the Nigerian Police has interrogated Mohbad’s former label boss, Naira Marley, and show promoter, Sammy Larry among others.

He also disclosed that a reward of 1 million Naira will be given to anyone with useful tips and information that could lead to Primeboy’s arrest.
