The Force Criminal Investigation Department of the Nigeria Police Force, Zone 2, Alagbon, Lagos, has denied a viral report alleging that music promoter, Samson Balogun, aka Sam Larry and singer Azeez Fashola also known as Naira Marley, have been arrested for questioning, following the demise of late singer Ilerioluwa Aloba popularly known as Mohbad.
The spokesperson for FCID in Lagos, Oluniyi Ogundeyi, in an interview with Punch described the report as false.
“The report is false; it is a lie; no one has been arrested. The police did not arrest Naira Marley or Sam Larry.”
NAIJASSADOR learnt that the speculation stormed the internet following some allegations that Mohbad’s former boss, Naira Marley, had on several occasions instigated Sam Larry and others to intimidate and assault the deceased for exiting Marlians Records.
However, Sam Larry and Naira Marley, had been attacked on social media after a video where Sam Larry and some of his associates were seen harassing Mohbad surfaced online.
The late 27-year-old singer and Zlatan Ibile in the video were on set for a music video when Sam Larry invaded the scene with some boys targeting Mohbad who ran away in fear.
Zlatan, however, tried to save the situation as he stood up to Larry and his allies to forestall any attack or bullying on Mohbad.
The video has seen Nigerians reporting the Instagram page of Sam Larry and Naira Marly for allegedly bullying and threatening the late singer.
Larry has since deactivated his Instagram account following the torrents of cyber attacks received since the video emerged.
