Balogun Olamilekan Eletu, also known as Sam Larry, has been taken into custody in connection with the contentious death of Mohbad.
The arrest was officially announced by the Police Public Relations Officer of the Lagos State Command, Ben Hundeyin, on Thursday night.
In a Twitter post, Hundeyin stated, “Balogun Olamilekan Eletu aka Sam Larry has been arrested and is now in our custody. He is currently assisting with the ongoing investigation.”
GQBuzz recalls that Sam Larry, an associate of the owner of Marlian Music that formerly signed Mohbad, Naira Marley, came under heavy fire on the internet after a video of him and his men disrupting Mohbad’s video shoot with Zlatan Ibile surfaced on social media.
It was also alleged that the music promoter and his associates subjected Mohbad to relentless bullying and influenced promoters to deprive him of opportunities, making his life increasingly challenging after leaving Marlian Record.
