Lagos Court Grants Bail in Mohbad Case, Orders Nurse and Friend Back to Custody
Bail Granted and Detention Ordered in Mohbad Case by Lagos Court
The Lagos State Magistrates’ Court in Yaba has ordered the return to custody of a 37-year-old auxiliary nurse, Fisayo Ogedengbe, and Ayobani Sadiq, popularly known as Spending, a friend of the late hip hop artiste Ilerioluwa Aloba, alias Mohbad, in connection with the controversial death of the musician.
It is alleged that the nurse administered injections to the late singer that resulted in his demise.
However, the magistrate granted bail in the amount of N20 million to Azeez Fashola, aka Naira Marley, former boss of Mohbad, and Lagos socialite Balogun Eletu, aka Sam Larry, who were also implicated in Mohbad’s death and were taken into police custody on October 6.
The magistrate stated, “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.
“One of the sureties must also possess a landed property. As part of the bail conditions, the defendants are required to surrender their passports and make weekly appearances at the State Criminal Investigation Department.”
Furthermore, Olatunbosun issued a stern warning, stating, “No one should attempt to contact me directly regarding the case. Any attempts to contact me directly will be documented and may be disclosed in open court proceedings.”
The police have indicated that their investigation into the case is ongoing. Consequently, Olatunbosun has adjourned the case until November 29 for advice from the Directorate of Public Prosecution (DPP).
