Mohbad: Police insist Naira Marley, Sam Larry not arrested

Music promoter, Samson Balogun, aka Sam Larry and singer Azeez Fashola aka Naira Marley, have not been invited for questioning following the demise of late singer Ilerioluwa Aloba aka Mohbad, according to the Lagos Annex, Force Criminal Investigation Department of the Nigeria Police Force, Zone 2, Alagbon.

This was confirmed by the spokesperson for the Lagos Annex of the FCID, Oluniyi Ogundeyi.

“The report is false; it is a lie; no one has been arrested. The police did not arrest Naira Marley or Sam Larry,” Ogundeyi told Punch on Thursday night.

The rumour followed allegations on social media that Mohbad’s former boss, Naira Marley, had on several occasions instigated Sam Larry and others to intimidate and assault the deceased for exiting Marlians Records.

Controversial socialite, Sam Larry, and singer, Naira Marley, had come under fire on social media after a video where Sam Larry and some others were seen harassing Mohbad surfaced online.

In the video, Mohbad and another singer Omoniyi Temidayo aka Zlatan Ibile, were on set for a music video when Sam Larry stormed the scene with some boys targeting Mohbad who scampered away in fear. Zlatan, however, tried to save the situation as he stood up to Larry and his allies to forestall any attack or bullying on Mohbad.

The video left many Nigerians on social media furious as they stormed Naira Marley and Sam Larry’s Instagram pages to attack him for bullying and threatening the late singer.

Larry, an ally of Naira Marley, has since deactivated his Instagram account following the torrents of cyber attacks received since the video emerged.
