Recently, Governor Sanwo-Olu released a message on Instagram in which he said he had also asked the DSS to work with the police on their investigation.
This is to inform everyone that I have not been in the dark about the passing of Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Imole Aloba (Mohbad),” the message said in part. We’ve been collaborating secretly with the proper authorities and keeping a close eye on the ongoing probes.
To this end, I have extended an invitation to the Department of State Services (DSS) to participate in the probe, expanding the scope of the investigation through coordinated efforts across government agencies and the application of cutting-edge technologies.
“I have instructed that all those who may have played any role or whatsoever in any event leading to the death of Mohbad be made to face the law after a thorough investigation.”
The Governor expressed his condolences to the deceased’s family and friends and asked that anyone with information helpful to the investigation please come forward.
His words of protection extended to anyone “who may come forward with vital information or indicative evidence that may assist the process.”
Further, he stated that “Police and DSS have been admonished to brief the public on their efforts periodically.”
