The Lagos State Police Command has arrested controversial Lagos socialite, Balogun Eletu, aka Sam Larry, over an ongoing investigation into the circumstances leading to the death of the singer, Ilerioluwa Aloba, aka Mohbad.
This was made known by the Nigerian Police Public Relations Officer SP Benjamin Hundeyin via his X account on Thursday.
The development comes less than 24 hours after Naira Marley said he was willing to fly back to Nigeria for investigation.
According to the statement, Naira Marley said all manner of stories had been peddled against him in respect of the death of Mohbad, whose real name is Ilerioluwa Aloba.
Though no further information was given by Hundeyin on the manner of Larry’s arrest, online reports indicate he was picked up at the airport.
Like Larry, there have been calls for Azeez Fashola aka Naira Marley’s arrest in the light of alleged clashes with the late Mohbad who had parted ways with Marlian Records in 2022 under less than amicable circumstances.
