Owohunwa noted that the team, which comprises seasoned homicide detectives, was tasked to “aggregate all allegations, suspicions and insinuations from various sources on the death of the singer and undertake a professional, diligent and timely investigation with a view to establishing facts, clearing all doubts and ensuring that justice is manifestly served through a meticulous process that will deploy all requisite protocols (which may include exhumation), as well as technical and scientific tools that are vital to the detailed investigation of homicide allegations of this nature.”

He stated that the Lagos State Government had pledged its support to the Special Investigation Team in all ways required to guarantee a diligent investigative exercise.
