Nollywood actress Tonto Dikeh, a prominent advocate for justice in the case of the late Nigerian singer Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba, widely known as Mohbad, expressed her dismay yesterday regarding the release of popular singer Naira Marley and show promoter Sam Larry from detention by the Lagos State Police Command.
Following the fulfillment of their bail conditions, Naira Marley and Sam Larry were released on Friday. They had been arrested recently due to their alleged involvement in the circumstances surrounding Mohbad’s death. Their arrest came after various videos and photos surfaced online days after the tragic passing of the singer on September 12.
On October 6, they were arraigned and remanded in custody over their alleged connection to the events leading to the young artist’s demise. In response to their release, Dikeh criticized the police for what she viewed as a careless and sluggish investigation into the matter.
Despite her disappointment with the handling of the case, Dikeh appealed to the police to release Mohbad’s body for burial.
She wrote: “Nigeria Police Force @the spokesman of the Lagos State Police Command, Benjamin Hundeyin, give us Mohbad’s corpse for a befitting burial. We are tired of your carelessness and showiness….if no one speaks I will. I have invested too much of my emotions, my time and my love to see this justice go through.
“This is not a case to be swept under the carpet. We want justice for Mohbad.”
