Music Promoter, Balogun Olamilekan Eletu, aka Sam Larry, is currently in Police custody in connection with the death of Ilerioluwa Aloba, better known as MohBad.
An ally of Azeez Fashola, Nigerian singer popularly known as Naira Marley, Sam Larry, has been trending since the news of the death of MohBad broke.
Although he and Naira Marley had stated innocence in the matter, many had called for their arrest over the multiple face-off with MohBad who parted ways with Marlian Records on a controversial note.
On Thursday night, SP Benjamin Hudeyin, spokesman of the Lagos State Police Command, announced that Sam Larry was in custody.
“Balogun Olamilekan Eletu aka Sam Larry is now in our custody. He is currently assisting with ongoing investigation,” Hundeyin said.
No sooner than the police image maker announced this than Sam Larry started trending on Twitter, topping the trends at number one.
It is unclear if Sam Larry surrendered to the police or was forcefully picked up as no information was given by Hundeyin in that regard.
Sam Larry’s probe by the police comes less than 24 hours after Naira Marley said he was willing to fly back to Nigeria for investigation.
In an interview with ex-Presidential media aide, Reno Omokri, Naira Marley said, “If the security agencies can guarantee my safety, I will be in Nigeria for investigations.”
The police, which conducted an autopsy on MohBad last week have vowed to ensure justice for the deceased.
