The Lagos State Police Command has arrested controversial Lagos socialite, Balogun Eletu, aka Sam Larry, over an on-going investigation into the circumstances leading to the death of the singer, Ilerioluwa Aloba, aka Mohbad.
The Lagos State Police Command Public Relations Officer, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, confirmed the development to our correspondent in a late Thursday night telephone interview.
“Yes, Balogun Eletu aka Sam Larry is now in our custody. He is currently assisting in the on-going investigation,” Hundeyin said.
The PUNCH reported that the police had earlier invited Sam Larry and singer, Azeez Fashola aka Naira Marley, for questioning over Mohbad’s demise.
The police, last week, also confirmed that pathologists had concluded the autopsy conducted on Mohbad, while they awaited the result.
He said, “Autopsy has been concluded. Awaiting results.”
This development followed the exhumation of Mohbad’s corpse 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.
