The coroner’s inquest set up to unravel the cause of the death of late singer, Ilerioluwa Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad, has invited controversial singer, Abdulazeez Fashola, aka Naira Marley; Samson Balogun Eletu, aka Sam Larry; and Owodunni Ibrahim, aka Primeboy, to appear before it on October 25, 2023.
During the inquest last Friday, Magistrate Sotobi Adedayo of the Candide Johnson Courthouse, Ikorodu, instructed the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Panti, to facilitate the presence of Naira Marley, Sam Larry, who are currently being detained by the department, at the next adjourned date slated for October 25, 2023.
He also ordered that the singer’s friend and fellow artiste Prime Boy be also brought before the coroner.
The magistrate further called for cooperation in the investigation for speedy and fast justice delivery on the death of the singer, while advising that interested parties should not encourage delay in order for MohBad’s remains to be finally laid to rest.
Speaking before the inquest, an investigating police officer attached to the homicide section of the SCID, ASP Muhammad Yusuf, an investigating police officer attached to the homicide section of the SCID, stated that in the course of their investigation, there was no evidence beyond reasonable doubt that Naira Marley assaulted Mohbad, nor was there any evidence that Sam Larry and Naira Marley were linked with Feyisayo Ogedengbe, the nurse who administered injections to the deceased.
Mohbad died on September 12 under questionable circumstances. But on October 6, the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Idowu Owohunwa, announced that Ogedengbe, Prime Boy, Ayobami Sadiq, were the prime suspects in the singer’s death.
