MOHBAD: How Police Picked Up Sam Larry at Lagos Airport 

Lagos police command has arrested Sam Larry over his role in Mohbad’s death.

Operatives of the Nigeria Police Force, Lagos State Command arrested socialite and music promoter, Balogun Eletu, popularly known as Sam Larry, from the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Ikeja, over the death of late musician, Ilerioluwa Aloba known as Mohbad.

SaharaReporters earlier reported that the command arrested Sam Larry, over an ongoing investigation into the circumstances leading to the death of Mohbad.

A police source revealed that “Sam Larry was arrested at the airport after he arrived from Kenya. Our officers arrested him at the airport and he was immediately taken to the state police headquarters for questioning.”

The Lagos State Police Command Public Relations Officer, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, had confirmed the development on X platform, formerly Twitter, late Thursday night.

“Balogun Olamilekan Eletu aka Sam Larry is now in our custody. He is currently assisting with ongoing investigation,” he had said.

The police had earlier invited Sam Larry and singer, Azeez Fashola aka Naira Marley, for questioning over Mohbad’s demise.

The police, last week, also confirmed that pathologists had concluded the autopsy conducted on Mohbad, while they await the result.

He said, “Autopsy has been concluded. Awaiting results.”

This development followed the exhumation of Mohbad by a combined team of the Nigeria Police Force and health officials.

The police had also arrested the nurse who reportedly injected the deceased singer before his demise on Tuesday, September 12.

Sam Larry’s arrest came after Naira Marley announced his plan to return to Nigeria to prove his innocence over Mohbad’s death, as long as his safety was guaranteed.
