NDLEA Releases Mohbad, Detains Zinoleesky




NDLEA Releases Marlians Musician Mohbad, Detains Zinoleesky

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has released Nigerian singer, Ilerioluwa Oladimeji also known as Mohbad.

In a series of tweets via his verified Twitter handle on Thursday, Marlian Music boss, Naira Marley, confirmed Mohbad’s release and the detention of his other artiste, Oniyide Azeez popularly known as Zinoleesky.

Naija News had reported that operatives of the NDLEA stormed the residence of the musicians in the Lekki area of Lagos State, in the early hours of Thursday morning.

An eyewitness claimed that the officials carried out the arrest without having any search warrants.


In the now-viral video, operatives of the NDLEA were seen manhandling the musicians, whilst shooting into the air to force them into waiting vans.

Naira Marley in his tweets accused the NDLEA of physically assaulting Mohad after being illegally arrested from his residence in Lekki.

The popular singer also asked the anti-narcotic agency to release his Zinoleeksy from their custody, claiming that the singers are under a lot of stress and torment.


He wrote: “NDLEA has released Mohbad after physically assaulting him, Zinoleesky is still in custody. The boys are under a lot of stress after being ambushed in the middle of the night with no warrant. I’m urgently returning to Lagos now now now.

“What is happening to my brothers is disgusting. The injustice is unfair and this is beginning to look like a pattern. First me now my artists. Free Zinoleesky, free shubomi, free micee and dosky.
