Mohbad: Naira Marley, Sam Larry File N40m Lawsuit Against Ma

Sam Larry and Naira Marley

Popular singer Abdulazeez Fashola, professionally known as Naira Marley, and Lagos socialite Samson Eletu, popularly known as Sam Larry, have filed a fundamental rights suit to contest their continued detention in connection with the death of 27-year-old singer Ilerioluwa Aloba, known as Mohbad.

The suit, filed before the Federal High Court in Lagos, also names the police and Lagos Magistrate Adeola Olatunbosun, who ordered their remand in police custody for 21 days, as defendants.

Naira Marley and Sam Larry are each seeking N20 million in damages from the defendants.

In their suit, filed through their lawyer, Olalekan Ojo (SAN), the pair is urging the court to declare that their continued detention ‘at the Homicide Section of the Lagos State Police Command, Panti, Yaba, Lagos State since October 4, 2023’ constitutes a violation of their rights. They are requesting ‘an order of the court for their immediate release’.

According to affidavits attached to their suits, their ordeal began between October 3 and 4, 2023, when they were arrested by the police due to their alleged connection with the death of Ilerioluwa Aloba, also known as Mohbad.

On October 4, 2023, the Commissioner of Police sought an order in the Magistrates’ Court, held at Yaba, to remand them for 30 days.

Chief Magistrate Adeola Olatunbosun granted the police’s application, allowing for their remand for 21 days in police custody.

The 21-day remand order granted by Chief Magistrate Olatunbosun expired on October 26, 2023, and has not been renewed.

Naira Marley and Sam Larry are seeking relief from the court, asserting their rights and challenging their continued detention in connection with the singer’s death.
