Police Re-arrest Mohbad's Friend, Primeboy

Afrobeat singer, Ibrahim Owodunni a.k.a Primeboy has been re-arrested by the Lagos State police command. His arrest was said to be linked to the death of Ilerioluwa Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad.

Punch reported that he was arrested on Tuesday morning, March 12, during his visit to the State Criminal Investigation Department at Panti, Yaba, alongside a witness, Ayobami Fisayo aka Spending.

Mohbad died on September 12 at the age of 27, in controversial circumstances which later sparked outrage and protests by fans calling for police investigation and prosecution of those involved in his death.

Following several accusations, singer, Naira Marley, Lagos socialite, Balogun Eletu, aka Sam Larry, Primeboy, amongst others were arrested and later released on bail.

It was further gathered that Primeboy and Spending had been asked to visit the SCID every week since the commencement of the investigation into the circumstances leading to the death of singer, Ilerioluwa Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad.

While Primeboy was arrested on Tuesday, March 12, Spending was released the same day.

A source told the publication; “Both of them had gone to register their presence at SCID this morning as they have been asked to report every week. But when they got there, Primeboy was immediately handcuffed and detained. They allowed only Spending to go after he had signed. Primeboy has been locked up as I speak.”
