In a significant development surrounding the ongoing investigation into the tragic death of the late music artist, Mohbad, a key person of interest, Owodunni Ibrahim Oluwatosin, famously known as Primeboy, has voluntarily surrendered himself to the Lagos State Police.
This dramatic turn of events unfolded less than a day after he was officially declared wanted by law enforcement authorities.
Primeboy was declared a wanted individual on Wednesday following his failure to respond to police invitations for questioning regarding the mysterious death of Mohbad.
The Lagos State Police Command had intensified efforts to locate and apprehend Primeboy, even offering a substantial reward of N1 million to anyone who could provide information leading to his arrest.
However, a surprising twist occurred on Thursday when Benjamin Hundeyin, the Lagos police spokesperson, issued a statement confirming that Primeboy had voluntarily surrendered himself to the authorities and was subsequently taken into custody for interrogation and further investigative procedures.
“Following his declaration as a wanted person, Owodunni Ibrahim Oluwatosin, aka Primeboy, has turned himself in. He has immediately been taken into custody for interrogation and other necessary actions,” Hundeyin stated.
“The Lagos State Police Command once again assures the family, friends, fans of Mohbad, and the general public that no stone will be left unturned in ensuring a most diligent investigation. The Command equally assures that all persons found culpable in the death of Mr. Ilerioluwa Aloba, aka Mohbad, will definitely be brought to justice.”
