In the midst of the ongoing controversy surrounding the untimely demise of Nigerian singer Ilerioluwa Aloba, widely known as Mohbad, Nollywood actress Iyabo Ojo has taken the initiative to express her concerns regarding the actions of his former record label boss, Naira Marley, and his associate, Sam Larry.
The 27-year-old singer passed away last Tuesday and has already been laid to rest. His passing has sparked a considerable amount of public reaction, with numerous individuals calling out Naira Marley and Sam Larry, alleging that they had subjected the late singer to bullying ever since he parted ways with Marlian Records.
In a visit to the office of the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Idowu Owohunwa, on Wednesday, Iyabo Ojo not only highlighted her concerns about Naira Marley and Sam Larry but also emphasized the presence of video evidence that could shed light on their involvement in the controversy.
Iyabo Ojo questioned why Sam Larry has not yet been summoned for questioning by the Lagos State Police Command, despite the numerous appeals from Nigerians for his arrest.
She shared her meeting with the Commissioner of Police via a live Instagram broadcast.
In the meantime, Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has extended an invitation to the Department of State Services (DSS) to collaborate in the investigation into Mohbad’s unfortunate passing.
He stated on his official social media platform, “I am deeply aware of the tragic loss of Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Imole Aloba (Mohbad). We have been working diligently behind the scenes with the relevant authorities and closely monitoring the ongoing investigations.”
“However, to enhance the investigation’s scope, I have requested the involvement of the Department of State Services (DSS) to join forces in the inquiry, facilitating inter-agency cooperation and the utilization of advanced technology to uncover the truth.”
“I have given instructions that anyone who may have had any involvement, no matter how minor, in the events leading up to Mohbad’s passing, must face legal consequences following a thorough investigation.”
Governor Sanwo-Olu is also appealing to anyone possessing information that could aid in the investigation to come forward and cooperate.
