The Lagos police authorities say there are pieces of evidence linking Naira Marley and Sam Larry with cyberbullying, physical abuse, a threat to life, and assault against Afrobeats star Mohbad.
Mohbad, also known as Ilerioluwa Aloba, died last month in questionable circumstances. While videos of the Afrobeats singer’s alleging bullying and assault resurfaced after his demise, many accused Naira Marley (Abdulazeez Fashola) and Sam Larry (Samson Balogun) of being complicit, a claim the duo have denied.
But in a briefing on Friday, the Lagos State Police Commissioner Idowu Owohunwa said there is evidence linking Naira Marley and Sam Larry of assault against Mohbad.
“While Abdulazeez Fashola (Naira Marley) and Samson Balogun (Sam Larry) denied allegations of criminal liability in the death of Mohbad and pleaded an alibi to justify their non-being complicit in the incident that occurred between 10-12 September 2023, there are ample electronic and credible witness pieces of evidence linking them to cyberbullying, a threat to life, assault occasioning harm, and conduct likely to cause a breach of the peace against the deceased in his lifetime,” he said during the briefing.
