According to the Lagos state police commissioner, Idowu Owohunwa, Ogedengbe administered multiple potent injections, including tetanus toxoid, paracetamol, and ceftriaxone, which triggered a fatal reaction.
The auxiliary nurse admitted her role in the injections, and her actions were deemed professionally negligent, given her status.
During a press briefing on Friday Lagos CP Idowu Owohunwa said: “The Auxiliary Nurse who was contacted and invited by Ayobami Sadiq (a.k.a Spending), a friend to Mohbad, on 11th September, 2023 to treat the singer at the deceased’s residence at Lekki-Lagos.
“She eventually came on Tuesday, 12th September, 2023 and administered three different injections which are believed to have occasioned the chain of reactions that directly resulted in the death of the singer.
“She is the Principal Suspect in the death of Mohbad. She acknowledged that it was the injections that she administered on the deceased that triggered the reactions which eventually led to Mohbad’s death. Other expert opinions and witnesses statements corroborated her admittance.
“Her actions of administering doses of Tetanus Toxoid, Paracetamol (IV) and Ceftriaxone injection (IV) on Mohbad at his residence on 12th September, 2023 immediately and directly triggered the reactions (including vomiting, goose bumps, convulsion) that eventually resulted in the singer’s death.
