The two musicians, Azeez Fashola, also known as Naira Marley, and Balogun Samson, also known as Sam Larry, were freed from detention by the Lagos State Police Command.

After the two guys fulfilled their bond requirements, they were freed on Friday.

On November 6, Naira Marley and Sam Larry were granted N20 million bail by Justice Adeola Olatunbosun of the Lagos State Magistrates Court, Yaba, along with three sureties in the same amount.

Together with these orders, the court mandated that the defendants turn in their passports and present every week at the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) in Panti, Yaba.


The duo were arrested in connection with the death of singer Ilerioluwa Aloba aka Mohbad.

Mohbad died in a mysterious circumstance on September 12.

The police arrested Sam Larry on September 29 and Marley on October 4.

The command spokesman, Benjamin Hundeyin, confirmed the release of the development in a terse statement on Friday evening.

He wrote: “Naira Marley and Sammy Larry, having met their bail conditions, have been released.”
