Lagos State Police Command has arrested controversial socialite, Balogun Olalekan Eletu, aka Sam Larry, over an ongoing investigation into the circumstances leading to the death of singer Ilerioluwa Aloba, aka Mohbad.
The Command spokesperson, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, disclosed this via post on his X account late Thursday night.
“Balogun Olamilekan Eletu aka Sam Larry is now in our custody. He is currently assisting with ongoing investigation,” he wrote.
Recall that the police had earlier invited Sam Larry and singer Azeez Fashola, aka Naira Marley, for questioning over Mohbad’s demise. Sam Larry and Naira Marley were accused of bullying and threatening Mohbad before his death.
The police had last week confirmed that pathologists had concluded an autopsy conducted on Mohbad, while they await the result.
“Autopsy has been concluded. Awaiting results,” Hundeyin said.
This development followed the exhumation of Mohbad by a combined team of the Nigeria Police Force and health officials.
The police had also arrested the nurse who reportedly injected the deceased singer before his demise on Tuesday, September 12.
