In a press conference held on the same day, Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Idowu Owohunwa, emphasized the force’s commitment to a thorough investigation. He announced that invitation letters had been sent to individuals of interest in connection to Mohbad’s death, urging them to come forward and cooperate with the authorities to clear their names. Owohunwa sternly warned that those who failed to honor the invitation would be declared wanted by law enforcement.
Furthermore, Commissioner Owohunwa revealed that if any persons of interest were found to be outside Nigeria’s jurisdiction, the police force would seek the assistance of the International Criminal Police Organization (Interpol) to ensure a comprehensive investigation.
