The police in Lagos says it has arrested controversial Lagos socialite, Balogun Eletu, better known as Sam Larry.
The State Police Command, Benjamin Hundeyin who confirmed the development, said Larry was arrested over an ongoing investigation into the circumstances leading to the death of the singer, Ilerioluwa Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad.
“Yes, Balogun Eletu aka Sam Larry is now in our custody. He is currently assisting with the ongoing investigation,” Hundeyin said.
Recall that the suspect and singer, Azeez Fashola aka Naira Marley, had earlier been invited by the police for questioning over Mohbad’s death.
The police, last week, also confirmed that pathologists had concluded the autopsy conducted on Mohbad, while they await the result.
He said, “Autopsy has been concluded. Awaiting results.” This development followed the exhumation of Mohbad by a combined team of the Nigeria Police Force and health officials.
The police had also arrested the nurse who reportedly injected the deceased singer before his demise on Tuesday, September 12.
