In a recent update concerning the controversial Mohbad injection case, the National Association of Nigeria Nurses and Midwives (NANNM) Lagos State Council has provided crucial information.
According to NANNM, the individual arrested for allegedly administering the injection to Mohbad is not a registered nurse.
This revelation was disclosed in a press statement issued by the NANNM Lagos State Council, signed by Toba Odumosu, the State Secretary. The statement, dated Saturday, September 23, reads as follows:
“The National Association of Nigeria Nurses and Midwives, Lagos State Council, extends its deepest condolences to the family and associates of the late musician, Ilerioluwa Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad, during this challenging time. Our thoughts and prayers are with them as we grieve his tragic passing.
We offer our full support for the ongoing investigation into the circumstances surrounding his demise and urge the relevant authorities to leave no stone unturned in the quest for justice.
However, we wish to stress the importance of professionalism in both reporting and conducting this investigation. NANNM is closely monitoring the situation with great interest. Based on our preliminary investigations, it appears that the individual taken into police custody for providing care to Mohbad is not a registered nurse.
We emphasize the critical necessity of verifying the qualifications and professional status of individuals before categorizing them as healthcare professionals.
Furthermore, we call upon the investigative authorities and the media to exercise caution and precision in their reporting during this investigation. We will not tolerate any misrepresentation of nurses and the nursing profession.”
Previously, there were reports of a suspect’s arrest in connection with the injection administered to Mohbad before his tragic passing. This development had already garnered significant public attention and speculation. However, the recent statement from the Lagos NANNM raises further questions.
