Emotions were high on Wednesday morning as fans and friends of the late Afrobeat singer, Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba, popularly known as MohBad, stormed the Lagos Police Command headquarters in Ikeja to demand justice for the deceased.
The late singer’s death has continued to generate reactions from far and near, especially because of the alleged humiliation and intimidation that preceded his death. Since the news of MohBad’s death broke out, the Nigerian media space has been set on fire, following accusations of molestation of the singer by his former record label, Marlian Records.
At the police headquarters, the #JusticeForMohBad agitators, led by Actress Iyabo Ojo, tabled their request for the arrest of Music producer, Naira Marley and socialite Sam Larry.
The actress visited the CP with her colleague, Foluke Daramola and skit maker Kiekie, alongside many others wearing t-shirts with the inscription, ‘#Justiceformohbad’ written on them.
Addressing the Lagos Commissioner of Police, Idowu Owohunwa, and his team of senior police officers, Iyabo Ojo, argued that several videos indicting Naira Marley and his associate, Sam Larry have been littered on social media platforms, wondering why the duo have not been put behind bars.
Ojo, who, at some point broke down in tears, alleged that the Marlian Records boss has, over the years, intimidated and bullied young entertainers under his label, while also citing the case of DJ Splash that accused Naira Marley of assault.
Ojo’s lawyer, who outlined the demands of the group, requested that the police boss to place a searchlight in the music industry to eradicate the promotion of illicit drugs.
In his response to their demands, the commissioner of police appealed to the group to trust security operatives, assuring that MohBad’s case will not be swept under the carpet under his watch.
The police boss, who acknowledged the videos trending online as having evidential values, immediately ordered a team of policemen to ensure that the family of the late singer is secured.
He urged people with relevant information concerning the case to come forward, while assuring them of security.
Meanwhile, some youths of Lagos State have stormed the office of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu to demand justice for the late singer.
