Sam Larry now in police custody over Mohbad’s death

Lagos State Police Command, on Thursday, announced the arrest of music promoter and controversial Lagos socialite, Balogun Olamilekan Eletu, also known as Sam Larry.

He was arrested over an ongoing investigation into the death of singer, Ilerioluwa Aloba, aka Mohbad.

Sam Larry, an ally of Azeez Fashola, Nigerian singer popularly known as Naira Marley, has been trending in the Social Media since the news of the death of MohBad broke.

Although he and Naira Marley had insisted on their innocence in the matter, many had called for their arrest over the multiple face-off with MohBad who parted ways with Marlian Records on a controversial note.

SP Benjamin Hundeyin, the Lagos State Police Command Public Relations Officer, who confirmed the development on his verified twitter page on Thursday also said Sam Larry is assisting with ongoing investigation.

He posted: “Balogun Olamilekan Eletu aka Sam Larry is now in our custody.

“He is currently assisting with ongoing investigation.”

No sooner than the police image maker announced this than Sam Larry started trending on Twitter, topping the trends at number one.

It was learnt that Sam Larry arrived from Nairobi Kenya around 10pm local time on Thursday.

He was immediately picked by police officers of the command headquarters.

Arriving at the headquarters at about 10:30pm, he was taken to see the Commissioner of Police where he was questioned and handed over to DC Panti.

Sam Larry’s probe by the police comes less than 24 hours after Naira Marley said he was willing to fly back to Nigeria for investigation.

In an interview with ex-Presidential media aide, Reno Omokri, Naira Marley said, “If the security agencies can guarantee my safety, I will be in Nigeria for investigations.”

The police, who conducted an autopsy on MohBad last week, have vowed to ensure justice for the deceased.
