She added, “His tragic loss has left an irreplaceable void in the Nigerian entertainment industry and the hearts of many. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family, friends, and fans during this difficult time.
“In response to this grievous loss, the Nigerian Youth Parliament is fully aware that the Lagos State Police Command has set up a 13-man special investigative team to probe the death of Mohbad, however, we call on the police and other relevant authorities to conduct a transparent and thorough investigation into the circumstances surrounding his passing.
