The Senate has vowed to bring to justice those responsible for his death.
Elisha Abbo, chairman of the Senate committee on creative economy, made this statement on Thursday during a condolences visit to Mohbad’s mother, Mrs. Adebose Olumuyi, in Lekki, Lagos. Other members of the delegation included Tonto Dikeh and Iyabo Ojo.
The National Assembly, according to Abbo, thinks it’s crucial to express sympathy to Mohbad’s family despite the controversy surrounding his death.
Before anything else, please accept our deepest condolences on behalf of the entire Mohbad family. I can promise you that the Nigerian government will do everything in its power to investigate this incident thoroughly and bring those responsible to justice if they have a hand in it.
He let slip that senators would like police to brief Congress on the situation.
He announced that the Senate would meet again on September 26th, just around the corner. The Nigerian Senate, which is directly accountable to the people of Nigeria, will investigate this matter objectively, assuring you of this. We will investigate the situation and request a briefing from the police on their findings.
The Senators urged the young protesters to stop their actions.
Don’t go out on the streets, especially if you knew Mohbad or have family or friends who did. You can count on me to speak up any time I witness the destruction of a young person.
Some people who do not care about us will hijack your protest if you take it to the streets. Because I don’t think Mohbad would approve of someone being killed in his name. His words.
But Mohbad’s mother, Mrs. Olumuyi, while expressing gratitude to the senator, urged the government to track down her son’s murderers.
Tonto Dike added, “Mohbad was a son and friend to us, we will not leave you now. Despite our past failures, we will not repeat them now. That’s why we’re here to tell you that not only do we support you 100%, but so does the rest of the world. As long as Mohbad does not receive the justice he deserves, no one will be able to rest easy. She proclaimed, “Every one of us is here today and fighting because we are all ready to fight for that justice.”
