The Lagos State Police Command says it has arrested singer, Azeez Fashola, popularly known as Naira Marley.
Spokesman of the command, Benjamin Hundeyin disclosed this in a terse statement on his official X handle on Tuesday night.
Hundeyin said the singer was taken into custody for interrogation and other investigation activities in connection to the death of singer, Ilerioluwa Aloba, otherwise known as Mohbad.
“Azeez Fashola aka Naira Marley has been taken into custody for interrogation and other investigation activities,” the police spokesman wrote.
The arrest of Naira Marley comes days after Sam Larry, the deceased music promoter was also arrested by the command in the ongoing investigation into the death of Mohbad.
The police, a few weeks ago, 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.
