Popular Nollywood actresses and old-time friends, Uche Jombo has criticized the Nigerians who, after experiencing Mohbad’s candlelight procession on September 21, stayed at the Lekki Toll Gate.
The candlelight vigil was organized to commemorate the late singer’s life and work.
According to reports, the Nigerian police used tear gas to disperse the crowd after originally asking that people leave peacefully.
Uche Jombo expressed her concerns about those who stayed at the toll gate after the event was over on her Twitter account.
The candlelight parade in Mohbad’s memory came to an end at 8:00 p.m, with organizers pleading with attendees to go home.
“So candlelight vigil for mohbad finished at 8pm and some people went to toll gate … why? I saw that tear gas video and thought it was at the vigil….. it was after sometimes as a people we can over do things.”
Recall that following the singer’s death on Tuesday, September 12, his long-term partner, Wunmi, revealed that they were married with a child before his passing.
This revelation surprised many because the singer had led a private life and kept his personal affairs off the internet until his death.
Amid the controversy surrounding the cause of his death, some netizens, led by controversial social media commentator Very Dark Man, have demanded a DNA test be conducted after the singer’s corpse is exhumed to establish the paternity of his son.
According to Very Dark Man, his wife is also a suspect until proven innocent, and thus, a DNA test should be carried out to demonstrate that she had no motive to harm the singer.
In response to this, Mary Njoku took to her Instagram page to criticize those advocating for a DNA test, describing their request as ‘evil.’
She asserted that the late singer’s wife is still mourning the death of her husband, who was her provider and protector, and should be allowed to grieve in peace.
