Naira Marley, Sam Larry and auxiliary nurse culpable in Mohbad’s death – Police

Police authorities in Lagos state say evidence has been uncovered of Naira Marley and Sam Larry’s culpability in the cyberbullying, physical abuse and assault of late rapper, Mohbad.

The 27-year-old singer died in September under questionable circumstances. While videos of the assault he suffered resurfaced after his demise, many accused Naira Marley and Sam Larry of being complicit, although the duo denied any involvement.

But the Lagos State Police Commissioner, Idowu Owohunwa while briefing the press on Friday, said there is evidence linking Naira Marley, Sam Larry and the auxiliary nurse to Mohbad’s death.

He said; “While Abdulazeez Fashola (Naira Marley) and Samson Balogun (Sam Larry) denied allegations of criminal liability in the death of Mohbad and pleaded an alibi to justify their non-being complicit in the incident that occurred between 10-12 September 2023, there are ample electronic and credible witness pieces of evidence linking them to cyberbullying, a threat to life, assault occasioning harm, and conduct likely to cause a breach of the peace against the deceased in his lifetime”.

Although the the Marlian Music boss and his associate have been detained, the Commissioner Owohunwa named an auxiliary nurse Ms Feyisayo Ogedengbe as the prime suspect.

“Five suspects have so far been identified, arrested, detained, and interrogated on their alleged roles in the sequence of events that led to the death of the singer,” he said.

According to him, Ogedengbe administered “multiple and highly potent” injections on Mohbad. He noted that the injections, consisting of Tetanus Toxoid, paracetamol, and Cetrazone, were administered at the singer’s residence on September 12.

The commissioner said Ogedengbe was unqualified to perform the role of a home nurse and did so in a non-clinical environment way.
