Mohbad: ‘There Have Been Several Calls To Release Sam Larry’ – Police Source

There are indications that police in Lagos State are under pressure to release music promoter, Balogun Olamilekan Eletu, also known as Sam Larry.


The Editor Nigeria recalls that Sam Larry was arrested and held for interrogation over the controversial death of 27-year-old singer, Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad.

The sources revealed that the individual calling made a promise to produce him whenever he is needed.

The source said, “There have been several calls to my boss to release Eletu, while the investigation continues. A renowned traditional ruler on the Island (names withheld) is always calling, pleading with my boss to release him after interrogation.


“When he became persistent, my boss directed him to the Commissioner of Police (CP), on the ground that he is the only one that can give the order for Eletu’s release or otherwise.”

The police further stated that investigations are still ongoing concerning the singer’s death and are still exploring other leads.
