Evidence is beginning to surface on social media following the release of an official statement by popular Nigerian socialite, Sam Larry, to the police.
Recall that Intel Region had previously reported the arrest of Sam Larry by the Lagos State police in connection with Mohbad’s death shortly after his return to Nigeria.
In his official statement, Sam Larry disclaimed any involvement in Mohbad’s death, asserting that his altercation with Mohbad revolved around a sum of N2 million. He explained that he had given Mohbad N2 million for a performance at his mother’s burial, but Mohbad failed to show up. Upon hearing that Mohbad was shooting a music video nearby, he approached him to inquire about his money.
In the statement, Sam Larry also claimed to have been out of the country since August 20th, 2023.
However, there is evidence of Sam Larry’s presence at Zinoleesky’s beach party on August 26th in Lagos, contradicting his statement that he had left Nigeria on August 20th.
The trending evidence can be seen below
Here are some reactions from social media:
otunba121: “The person who helped him write that statement didn’t rehearse well, and yes, he’s going to prison, boss!! #justiceformohbad.”
lukaz_opafour: “Let the DSS take over; I don’t trust the police that much. That man might escape.”
realdnd_122: “Dear brother @adejobimuyiwa, please be honest about this case 🙏. Why did Sam Larry pay Mohbad directly when he was under Marlian’s record label? Think about this carefully, and let Sam Larry tell us who was at this party on August 26th because he told us he left Nigeria on August 20th. Hmmmmmm🔥. Let me ask you a question. Even if he owed him 2 million, does he have the right to take the law into his own hands? Why didn’t he go to the police station and report Mohbad’s debts? Remember, we will have to explain every step we take in the presence of Almighty God soon. Ire ooooo.”
pretty._vera: “You only find him where people are assaulted.”
id_bigname_001: “This country has tired me. The police are working with Sam Larry and Naira Marley to close this case. Nigerians, what’s the way forward? 😢😢.”
iam_niphemmy_: “When God says it’s time, who are you to change it?
