Nigerian police invite Sam Larry, Mohbad failed to show up– FCID

The Lagos Annex, Force Criminal Investigation Department of the Nigeria Police Force, Zone 2, Alagbon, has revealed that it invited music promoter, Samson Balogun, aka Sam Larry and others, after receiving a petition filed by late singer, Ilerioluwa Aloba aka Mohbad, over alleged assault, amongst others.

In a chat with Punch, the spokesperson for the Lagos Annex of the FCID, Oluniyi Ogundeyi, said that the late singer, Mohbad failed to show up at the police station to adopt and defend his petition, and also provide proof of the allegations, to assist the police in prosecuting the suspects, if necessary. He also mentioned that SamLarry via his lawyer also filed a counter petition accusing Mohbad of defamation of character.

“We received the petition, and followed up on the information provided in the petition, and the suspects were invited. But Mohbad refused to show up to defend his petition and also provide evidence to assist the police in carrying out a proper investigation and forward the matter to the legal department for prosecution, if necessary.

It is true that Mohbad reported the case on June 27, 2023. The IPO confirmed this to me today (Thursday), and showed me the case file. The IPO revealed that Sam Larry and other suspects mentioned in the petition were invited for questioning and they honoured the invite and also gave their statements. But the deceased refused to show up to adopt and defend his petition, and a lawyer to Sam Larry and the other suspects filed a counter-petition accusing Mohbad of defaming them.

The police even reached out to Mohbad on several occasions, but he never showed up, and there was nothing the police could do if a petitioner refused to defend their petition and provide evidence to help the police in investigating the matter and forward the case file to the legal department of the suspect’s are found culpable.” he said
