Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Idowu Owohunwa, has revealed that there is no evidence linking Nigerian singer Naira Marley and his friend, Sam Larry to the tragic death of singer Ilerioluwa Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad.
Commissioner Owohunwa made this announcement during a press conference on Friday.
According to the Commissioner of Police, thorough investigations have determined that both Naira Marley and Sam Larry were not present in Nigeria at the time of Mohbad’s unfortunate demise.
The Commissioner did disclose another startling detail in his statement. It appears that Sam Larry, Naira Marley’s friend, did engage in physical altercations with Mohbad prior to the singer’s death.
Owohunwa explained that Sam Larry confessed to physically confronting Mohbad over a dispute involving a significant sum of N2million, which the deceased singer had allegedly received for his mother’s burial expenses but failed to deliver on his performance commitment during the event.
In Commissioner’s words;
There are evidence that Naira Marley and Sam Larry have nothing to do with Mohbad’s death.
“Documentary evidence shows that both Naira Marley and Sam Larry we’re not in the country during the singer’s death.
“However, there are electronic evidence that Sam Larry bullied the singer, this he admitted.
“Sam Larry admitted to physical assisting of Mohbad over the two million naira the singer collected for his mother’s burial but failed to perform during the event.”
