Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode has reacted to a statement made by clergyman, Tunde Bakare over the demise of late Afrobeats star, Ilerioluwa Aloba aka Mohbad.
Bakare had during a sermon in Leicester said Mohbad’s life was cut short due to his association with evil men.
The cleric said: “My wife and I listened to a tape last night on MohBad. How many of you know MohBad? The Nigerian artiste who died at 27? MohBad”.
“When he was drinking and smoking and associating with evil men, he does not know that the harvest will come so soon and that he will soon be cut down at the prime of youth.”
Reacting to Bakare’s comment, Fani-Kayode stated that Mohbad did not deserve untimely death despite his association while alive.
“Whether the unfortunate young man known as Mohbad was good or bad and whether he associated with evil men or not, he surely did not deserve to be murdered.
Everyone has the right to life regardless of the friends they keep, their lifestyle, their name, or the color they dye their hair. Assuming he was murdered, rather than judge him shouldn’t we be trying to find out who killed him?” the APC chieftain stated.
