Mohbad’s Death: Detaining Naira Marley Without Evidence To Appease Internet Mob Violates His Rights —Sister, Shubomi

Shubomi, the sister of controversial Nigerian singer Afeez Fashola, popularly known as Naira Marley, has condemned her brother’s continued detention over his alleged role in the death of singer, Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba, famously known as Mohbad.

According to her, the detention violates Naira Marley’s human rights.

Naira Marley and his crew have been accused by a section of the public of harassing and assaulting Mohbad for leaving Marlian Records, owned by the former.

But he has denied having anything to do with Mohbad’s death.

Mohbad died on Tuesday, September 12, 2023.

Marley was taken into custody by the police for interrogation on October 3, 2023, shortly after returning to Nigeria from overseas, over the death of his former signee Mohbad.

Naira Marley had earlier posted that he had arrived in Lagos to assist the police in their investigation into the death of Mohbad.

The singer had tweeted, “I’d like to share that I’ve just arrived back in Lagos, Nigeria to assist the authorities with the ongoing investigation. It’s important I do my part for Imole. I’ll be meeting with the police with hopes for the truth to be uncovered and for justice to prevail.”

In an earlier statement posted on his Instagram page, Naira Marley said though he and Mohbad had misunderstandings, he never fought or attacked him.

However, Shubomi, in a post via her Instastory, lamented that Naira Marley had been kept in detention for nearly 30 days with no charge filed against him by the police.

According to her, Naira Marley was being detained to appease the ‘social media and internet mob’.

She wrote, “Keeping someone who willingly traveled back to help in detention for nearly 30 days, with no charge, no evidence, no sufficient witness is a violation of his human rights. Keeping him in custody to appease social media and the internet mob is crazy.

“If you have evidence against him for anything he’s been accused of charge him! But if you don’t release him. It shouldn’t take this long for the investigation to be done.”

“We all want the truth! We all want justice. What is the delay? We’ve already lost one person, trying to lynch another is not going to bring about justice,” she also said.
