Mohbad: Court Sends Nurse, Friend Back To Custody

At the Lagos State Magistrates’ Court in Yaba, a 37-year-old auxiliary nurse, Fisayo Ogedengbe, was remanded in custody on Monday in connection with the controversial death of hip hop artiste Ilerioluwa Aloba, known as Mohbad. It is alleged that the nurse administered injections to the late singer, which led to his demise.

Simultaneously, the magistrate, Adeola Olatunbosun, directed that Ayobani Sadiq, a friend of Mohbad who is also considered a suspect in the case, should be returned to police custody.

However, Naira Marley (Azeez Fashola), Mohbad’s former boss, and Lagos socialite Sam Larry (Balogun Eletu), who were both implicated in Mohbad’s death and detained by the police on October 6, were granted bail in the sum of N20 million each.

The magistrate said, “The defendants (Naira Marley and Sam Larry) are hereby granted bail in the sum of N20m 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.”

Olatunbosun also warned that no one should contact her directly on the case.

“Any attempts to contact me directly would be recorded and potentially disclosed in open court proceedings,” she added.

According to the police, the investigation on the case is still ongoing, hence Olatunbosun adjourned the case till November 29 for DPP advice.
