The Panseke-Oke ilewo route was completely blocked off as thousands of youth stormed the streets to pay their respects and protest the death of Mohbad.
The former Marlian record signee passed away on Tuesday last week at the age of 27 and was buried the next day in the Lagos State neighborhood of Ikorodu.
In all-black attire, the youth gathered at the Panseke skating ground around 9 a.m. on Tuesday singing, crying with signs reading# “Justice for Mohbad,” Who killed Mohbad”, Who of the Light, “No more Marlian”, “Sammy Larry must die”, “ Imole must be avenged “ Too young to go at 27”.
The purpose of the protest, according to 7 Figures O Lorine, who was one of the demonstrators, was to demand justice for Mohbad.
“We are here for Mohbad. We are here for Imole, and he’s a colleague and we all feel bad about the untimely death. And we hope and pray this is not the annual anniversary we want to do every minute, every year among us. So we are here to celebrate him. We are here to give him last respect. At the same time, we are here to make sure justice is being served because we really want to know what’s behind his death because we are not expecting him to leave so soon.
Dammy Seun, another protester, urged the government to launch an investigation and explain what happened to Nigerians.
We are expecting a lot from the government, from the family and from the fans and people who choose to say I love Mohbad , I love Mohbad , I I love his song. So what I’m expecting now is that I want everybody to actually have the clearer picture of what really happened to Mohbad. And we really want justice to be done. If there’s anybody behind it or anybody who has a hand in his death, we really want justice to be done peacefully.
Meanwhile, the Nigeria police force, the Nigeria security and civil defence corps, and other sister organisations were visible on the ground to assist with providing a hijack-free protest.
