Balogun Olamilekan Eletu, aka Sam Larry, is in police custody and allegedly states that he knows nothing about how Mohbad died.
In the alleged statement, he stated that he never had any affiliations outside of work with Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba, aka Mohbad, who suddenly passed away on September 12, 2023. Larry attested that he had been out of Nigeria long before the musician died and had no hand in it.
Pleading his innocence he said, “I have been away since August 20! till now I don’t know anything other than what was written in the blogs and press. I don’t even know where he lives, I only know his former label boss and their house. I don’t know any nurse or doctor or hospital, I don’t know anything about his movement, I don’t have that time, I have lost a lot more money than that before, you win some you lose some. That is my story case close. I came here willingly and happily. I know nothing about how the musician died. “
This isn’t the first time Larry has dissociated himself from Mohbad’s untimely demise. Following the public outcry for his arrest in connection to the singer’s maltreatment before he died, Larry posted a video alleging that he did not kill Mohbad.
