BREAKING: MOHBAD: Naira Marley Taken Into Custody For Interrogation – Police
Following the death of late Singer, Ilerioluwa Aloba aka Mohbad, Lagos State Police Command on Tuesday night announced that singer Azeez Fashola aka Naira Marley is in its custody to assist in the ongoing investigation into shocking death.
Lagos police command spokesman, Benjamin Hundeyin disclosed this via his X account, formerly known as Twitter.
He wrote: “Azeez Fashola aka Naira Marley has been taken into custody for interrogation and other investigation activities,”.
This is even as the Police have begun investigations to unravel the circumstances surrounding the death of Ilerioluwa Aloba aka Mohbad, a 27-year-old artist, with an autopsy already completed following the exhumation of his remains last Thursday.
Earlier in a tweet on Tuesday night Naira Marley announced his arrival in Lagos to assist in the ongoing probe while noting that he’d be meeting with the police.
He said, “I’d like to share that I’ve just arrived back in Lagos, Nigeria to assist the authorities with the ongoing investigation. It’s important I do my part for Imole.
“I’ll be meeting with the police with hopes for the truth to be uncovered and for justice to prevail.”
The police had earlier invited Naira Marley and controversial music promoter, Balongun Eletu aka Sam Larry (now in police custody), to question Mohbad’s demise.
The police, last week, also confirmed that pathologists have concluded the autopsy conducted on Mohbad, while the police await the result.
In an exclusive interview with Punch correspondent, Hundeyin said, “Autopsy has been concluded. Awaiting results.” This development followed the exhumation of Mohbad by a combined team of the Nigeria Police Force and health officials.
Meanwhile, the police said the Command had also arrested the nurse who reportedly injected the deceased singer prior to his demise on Tuesday, September 12.
