The Lagos State Police Command has confirmed that Owodunni Ibrahim aka Primeboy has turned himself in for interrogation over the death of Afrobeats musician Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba, known as Mohbad.
The Lagos Police spokesperson, Ben Hundeyin, had on Wednesday declared Primeboy wanted following his failure to honour the invitation successfully sent to him since the commencement of investigation into the circumstances leading to the death of Mohbad.
On Thursday, Hundeyin issued a statement on X (formerly Twitter) to announce that Primeboy is now in the Police custody.
“Following his being declared wanted, Owodunni Ibrahim Oluwatosin, aka Primeboy, has turned himself in,” he wrote.
“He has immediately been taken into custody for interrogation and other necessary actions.”
Hundeyin added that the Lagos State Police Command once again assures family, friends, fans of Mohbad and the general public that no stone will be left unturned in ensuring a most diligent investigation.
“The Command equally assures that all persons found culpable in the death of Mr Ilerioluwa Aloba aka Mohbad will definitely be brought to justice,” the Police spokesman said.
Meanwhile, a Magistrate Court in Yaba, Lagos State, on Wednesday, ordered that Azeez Fashola aka Naira Marley, Samson Balogun Eletu alias Sam Larry and two others should be remanded over the death of Mohbad.
The Court wants Naira Marley and Sam Larry to remain in police custody for 21 days alongside Ogedengbe Fisayo and Ayobami Sadiq as investigations continue to unravel the killers of the musician.
The Lagos State Police had actually requested a 30-day detention for Naira Marley and the other individuals mentioned.
However, Magistrate Adeola Olatunbosun decided to detain the owner of Marlian records and the others for a shorter period, specifically 21 days.
Olatubosun ordered their remand in the police State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCID) while she adjourned the case until 25 October.
She also ordered that the suspects be granted access to medicals and lawyers of their choice after being charged with conspiracy and suspected murder.
Naira Marley and Lagos socialite, Sam Larry, have become subjects of investigation regarding the demise of Mohbad who tragically passed away on September 12.
