Lagos State Police Command has announced the arrest of Balogun Eletu, widely known as Sam Larry, an associate of singer Naira Marley, over the death of musician, Mohbad.
The Command’s spokesman, Benjamin Hundeyin said in a statement late yesterday that Balogun Olamilekan Eletu, aka Sam Larry “is now in our custody. He is currently assisting with the ongoing investigation.”
Sam Larry and Naira Marley have been at the centre of a public outrage over Mohbad’s death.
A video had captured Sam Larry storming Zlatan Ibilr’s music video shoot and attempting to harass Mohbad.
In his defence, Sam Larry posted a video on social media where he denied involvement in Mohbad’s death, insisting that he loved Mohbad while he was alive.
Mohbad died aged 27 on September 12 under controversial circumstances.
The police are investigating his death and have carried out an autopsy after exhuming his body.
The Lagos State judiciary has also announced a coroner’s inquest, due to commence today, September 29, into the matter, at the instance of a human rights lawyer, Femi Falana.
