Police in Lagos State on Wednesday declared one Owodunni Ibrahim popularly known as “Primeboy’’, wanted in connection with the death of 27-year-old singer, Ilerioluwa Aloba, better known as Mohbad.
The police also placed a N1 million bounty on Primeboy’s head for anyone who gives information leading to his arrest.
Mohbad died in controversial circumstances on Sept.12 and was buried on Sept. 13, but his corpse was exhumed on Sept. 21 for autopsy.
Fans and celebrities took to the streets protesting the singer’s death and demanding that justice be done as they suspected foul play in his death.
Police spokesman in Lagos State, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, stated that police declared Primeboy, an associate and friend of Mohbad, wanted following his refusal to honour police invitation.

“Ibrahim is approximately 1.64m tall, male, dark-complexioned with tribal marks and Yoruba by tribe.

“If seen, contact the nearest police station or call 08036885727.
“Commissioner of Police, Mr Idowu Owohunwa, offers a handsome reward of N1 million to anyone with useful information leading to Primeboy’s arrest,’’ Hundeyin stated. (NAN)
