The Lagos State Police Command has confirmed that Balogun Olamilekan Eletu, known by his alias “Sam Larry,” is now in their custody.
Sam Larry is currently under investigation in connection with the untimely demise of Nigerian singer Ilerioluwa Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad.
The announcement was made by SP Benjamin Hundeyin, the spokesperson for the Lagos State Police Command, who stated, “Balogun Olamilekan Eletu, aka Sam Larry, is now in our custody. He is currently assisting with an ongoing investigation.”
This latest development comes in the wake of intense scrutiny surrounding the circumstances of Mohbad’s death, which occurred on September 12, 2023.
The investigation has garnered significant attention, especially after Naira Marley, the head of Marlian Record label, disclosed his intentions to return to Nigeria and cooperate with the police regarding the ongoing inquiry into Mohbad’s passing.
