Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh, who has been at the forefront of the fight for justice for the late Nigerian singer, Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad have expressed disappointment over the release of popular singer, Azeez Fashola a.k.a Naira Marley and show promoter, Sam Larry, from detention by the Lagos State Police Command.
Africa Today News, New York recalls that Naira Marley and Sam Larry were released on Friday after meeting their bail conditions.
The two were recently taken into custody due to their purported role in the events leading up to Mohbad’s killing. Following several images and videos that appeared online a few days after the singer’s untimely death on September 12th, they were arrested.
On 6th of October, they were charged and placed under remand for their claimed roles in the events leading up to the young artist’s death.
In her reaction to their release from detention in a lengthy Instagram post, Dikeh accused the police of being careless and slow in investigating the matter.
She, however, asked the police to release the corpse of the late singer for burial.
She wrote: ‘Nigeria Police Force @the spokesman of the Lagos State Police Command, Benjamin Hundeyin, give us Mohbad’s corpse for a befitting burial. We are tired of your carelessness and showiness….if no one speaks I will. I have invested too much of my emotions, my time and my love to see this justice go through.
‘This is not a case to be swept under the carpet. We want justice for Mohbad.’
In a related development, Bella Shmurda, the popular Nigerian singer, has made an appeal to the police.
He called on the police to release the body of his deceased friend, Ilerioluwa Aloba aka Mohbad.
In a post shared on his X handle, Bella Shmurda said it has been two months since Mohbad died and his body was taken for an autopsy, and has since not been released.
He called on the police to release Mohbad’s body for a befitting funeral to be held for him and also called for the result of the autopsy to be released.
