In the face of Nigerians’ fiery accusations that Naira Marley and Sam Larry had a hand in Mohbad’s demise, the police boldly waved the flag of their innocence, firmly stating that they’ve got the evidence to back it up. But, they didn’t let them off the hook entirely, acknowledging that Naira Marley and Sam Larry are guilty of assaulting the late singer before his tragic end. This twist in the tale has turned the investigation into Mohbad’s death into a real head-scratcher, leaving us to grapple with the burning question of who’s ultimately responsible.
The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Idowu Owohunwa, has said Naira Marley and Sam Larry denied complicity in the death of singer, Mohbad.
Owohunwa revealed this information when providing an update on the singer’s passing, stating that both Marley and Larry were overseas at the time of Mohbad’s death.
The CP, however, affirmed that Larry subjected Mohbad to physical assault before his death.
“There is evidence that Naira Marley and Sam Larry have nothing to do with Mohbad’s death.
“Documentary evidence shows that both Naira Marley and Sam Larry were not in the country during the singer’s death.
“However, there is electronic evidence that Sam Larry bullied the singer, he admitted.
“Sam Larry admitted to physically assaulting Mohbad over the two million naira the singer collected for his mother’s burial but failed to perform during the event.”
Also, Owohunwa disclosed that the police had identified a total of 26 witnesses.
During the press briefing on Friday, October 10, the commissioner of police in Lagos state, said that the injection administered on Mohbad by an auxiliary nurse, Feyisayo Ogedengbe, who treated him on Tuesday, September 12, led to his death.
Recall Sam Larry had explained that his brawl with Mohbad was over N2 million owed him by the late singer.
This was after he came under fire on social media following a video of him and some people harassing late singer, Mohbad surfacing on social media.
While alive, Mohbad had alleged that he was assaulted by Naira Marley after he demanded a change of manager.
