In the latest developments surrounding the tragic demise of Afrobeats sensation Mohbad, the Nigerian Police have revealed compelling evidence implicating associates Naira Marley and Sam Larry in a series of grave offenses, including cyberbullying, physical abuse, threats to life, and assault against the late artist. Born Ilerioluwa Aloba, Mohbad passed away under mysterious circumstances on September 12, sparking a wave of public outrage and speculation.
Shortly after Mohbad’s untimely death, videos depicting his alleged bullying and assault began circulating online, with fingers pointed directly at Naira Marley and Sam Larry for their alleged involvement. Both individuals vehemently denied any connection to the events leading up to Mohbad’s tragic end but were subsequently apprehended for questioning by the police, who have now presented damning evidence against them.
Lagos State Police Commissioner, CP Idowu Owohunwa, addressed the media on Friday, October 6, 2023, confirming the existence of electronic and credible witness evidence linking Naira Marley and Sam Larry to cyberbullying, threats to life, assault causing harm, and conduct likely to incite a breach of peace against Mohbad during his lifetime. Despite the denial of criminal liability and the plea of an alibi from Naira Marley and Sam Larry, the evidence paints a disturbing picture of their alleged involvement in the tragic incident that occurred between September 10-12, 2023.
While both Naira Marley and Sam Larry remain in police custody, CP Owohunwa identified an auxiliary nurse, Ms. Feyisayo Ogedengbe, as the primary suspect in Mohbad’s death. According to the police investigation, Ms. Ogedengbe administered a potent combination of Tetanus Toxoid, paracetamol, and Cetrazone—an antibiotic—to Mohbad at his residence on September 12. The administered medications elicited an immediate adverse reaction, causing Mohbad to vomit and experience goosebumps and convulsions.
As the investigation unfolds, a total of five suspects have been identified, arrested, and detained for their alleged roles in the sequence of events leading to Mohbad’s tragic demise. The revelations have sent shockwaves through the entertainment industry and the public, raising questions about the responsibility and accountability of prominent figures in society.
The police continue their relentless pursuit of justice, aiming to uncover the truth behind Mohbad’s untimely passing and hold all those involved accountable for their actions. The unfolding details serve as a stark reminder of the consequences of cyberbullying, assault, and abuse, underscoring the need for collective efforts to create a safer environment for all individuals, regardless of their status or profession.
