In a significant development related to the controversial death of hip-hop artist Ilerioluwa Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad, the Lagos State Magistrates’ Court in Yaba made crucial decisions on Monday. The court sent back to custody 37-year-old auxiliary nurse Fisayo Ogedengbe, who was arrested by the police in connection with Mohbad’s death.
The allegations suggest that Ogedengbe administered injections to the late singer, leading to his untimely demise. Similarly, Mohbad’s friend, Ayobani Sadiq, another suspect in the case, was also ordered to return to police custody.
However, the magistrate, Adeola Olatunbosun, granted bail in the sum of N20 million to Mohbad’s former boss, Azeez Fashola, popularly known as Naira Marley, and Lagos socialite Balogun Eletu, aka Sam Larry. Both were implicated in Mohbad’s death and taken into police custody on October 6.
Magistrate Olatunbosun outlined the bail conditions, stating, “The defendants (Naira Marley and Sam Larry) are hereby granted bail in the sum of N20 million with three responsible sureties in like sum pending the legal advice from the Office of the Directorate of Public Prosecution. Also, one of the sureties must own a landed property. As part of the bail conditions, the defendants are to surrender their passports and make weekly appearances at the State Criminal Investigation Department.”
However, Olatunbosun cautioned against direct contact regarding the case, emphasizing, “Any attempts to contact me directly would be recorded and potentially disclosed in open court proceedings.”
The police affirmed that investigations into the case are ongoing, prompting Olatunbosun to adjourn the case until November 29 for legal advice from the Directorate of Public Prosecution.
