The Ekiti State House of Assembly on Wednesday called for a thorough investigation into the death of singer Ilerioluwa Aloba aka Mohbad.

The Assembly made the call while deliberating on a motion moved by the lawmaker representing Ikere Constituency I, Mr. Babatunde Oke.

Oke, who moved the motion under a matter of urgent public importance, said it was important to unravel the circumstances behind Mohbad’s death.

The singer died last Tuesday and was buried 24 hours later in Lagos.
