The Police Force Public Relations Officer, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, has said the force will look into the petition made by the late singer, Ilerioluwa Aloba, aka Mohbad, against music promoter, Samson Balogun, aka Sam Larry.
A petition written by the late Mohbad over an alleged threat to life by Sam Larry and others surfaced online days after the singer’s death.
The petition alleged that Sam Larry and 15 others stormed a video shoot where Mohbad and another artiste, Zlatan Ibile, were working and unleashed violence.Sharing a copy of the petition on his X page on Tuesday, the FPRO tweeted, “We will look into the alleged police negligence on this case.”
The Lagos Annex, Force Criminal Investigation Department of the Nigeria Police Force, Zone 2, Alagbon, to whom the letter was addressed, had revealed that it had invited Sam Larry and others, following the receipt of the June 27 petition, but Mohbad was absent.
Commenting on this claim, Adejobi added, “We also need to know why he declined the invitation or appearance at the office. There are many things to find out and clarify. And all will be done.”
Recall that Mohbad, a former singer on Marlian Records owned by Azeez Fashola, popularly known as Naira Marley, died last week Tuesday at the age of 27 under questionable circumstances, with many people calling for thorough investigation and inquest into his untimely exit.
Meanwhile, traffic in the early morning of Tuesday within Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, suffered some disruptions as hundreds of youths filed out to protest and demand justice over Mohbad’s sudden death.
