It may be recalled that the National Association of Nigeria Nurses and Midwives (NANNM) denied the yet-to-be named nurse who treated late musician, Ilerioluwa Olademeji Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad.

She was said to have given the 27-year-old rapper an injection before his death which happened under controversial circumstances.

The association, in a press statement by its State Secretary, Toba Odumosu, described the purported nurse as a “quack” and noted that she is not a registered health practitioner.

The statement read partly: “The National Association of Nigeria Nurses and Midwives (NANNM), Lagos State Council, expresses its deepest condolences to the family and associates of the late musician, llerioluwa Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad, during this difficult time. Our thoughts and prayers are with them as we mourn his tragic passing.
