The Nigeria Police Force on Tuesday said it would look into the alleged police negligence of late singer, Mohbad’s petition against show promoter Samson Balgun, also known as Sam Larry, and 15 others.
Kanyidaily recalls that Mohbad, before his death, had petitioned the police over “threat to life, malicious damage of properties valued at the sum of five million naira, assault, occasional harm, oppression, and conduct likely to cause breach of peace” against Sam Larry and 15 others.
According to the petition, on June 25, 2023, Mohbad was attacked at a video shoot by Sam Larry and 15 others, all armed, who wrecked havoc on the location, damaging equipment worth over N5 million and assaulting the singer, who “narrowly escaped with injuries.”
The petition, which surfaced online shortly after the singer died, led to many accusing the police of negligence.
Reacting, the Nigeria Police Force PRO, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, said the force would investigate the alleged negligence of the petition.
Sharing a copy of the petition via his X handle, he wrote, “We will look into the alleged police negligence on this case.”
Kanyidaily recalls that Ibadan radio stations banned Naira Marley Songs.
