The Lagos State Police Command on Tuesday night announced that singer Azeez Fashola aka Naira Marley is in its custody to assist in the ongoing investigation into the death of late Singer, Ilerioluwa Aloba aka Mohbad.
Making the development known in a statement on Tuesday, the Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin said, “Azeez Fashola aka Naira Marley has been taken into custody for interrogation and other investigation activities.”
Recall that MohBad died on September 12 at age 27.
The police had previously invited Naira Marley and controversial music promoter Balongun Eletu aka Sam Larry (who is now in police detention) to investigate Mohbad’s death.
Last Monday, the police also announced that doctors had completed the autopsy on Mohbad, and that the police were awaiting the results.
In an exclusive interview Hundeyin 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.
As part of the ongoing investigation, authorities apprehended the nurse who allegedly injected the deceased musician before his death on Tuesday, September 12.
Naira Marley had earlier announced his arrival in Lagos to aid in the ongoing investigation in a tweet on Tuesday night, saying that he’d be meeting with police.
