The Lagos State Command of the Nigeria Police Force has arrested Nigerian singer, Azeez Adeshina Fashola, better known as Naira Marley, over the death of one of his former signees, Ilerioluwa Aloba, professionally known as MohBad.
Recall that Mohbad died mysteriously a few weeks ago.
The Lagos Police command spokesperson, Benjamin Hundeyin, however, confirmed in a statement on Tuesday night that Naira Marley, who had just returned to Nigeria, has been arrested.
“Azeez Fashola, aka Naira Marley, has been taken into custody for interrogation and other investigation activities,” Hundeyin noted on his X (former Twitter) account late Tuesday.
Naija News understands that Naira Marley is expected to assist the police in their investigation into the demise of MohBad, which has generated mixed reactions on and off social media.
Naira Marley had earlier vowed to clear his name and had, before the police statement, confirmed his arrival in Nigeria to help the probe into his former signee’s demise.
“I’d like to share that I’ve just arrived back in Lagos, Nigeria, to assist the authorities with the ongoing investigation. It’s important I do my part for Imole. I’ll be meeting with the police with hopes for the truth to be uncovered and for justice to prevail,” the singer said earlier.
