As the investigation into the death of late singer, Mohbad intensifies, the National Association of Nigeria Nurses and Midwives (NANNM) Lagos State Council has revealed a shocking information.
According to the NANN, the person allegedly arrested for administering the injection to Mohbad is not a registered nurse.
This disclosure became known through a press release issued by the NANNM Lagos State Council. The statement, dated Saturday, September 223rd signed by Toba Odumosu, State Secretary reads;
