Actress questions Naira Marley’s confidence in police custody, suggests political backing
In a surprising twist to the ongoing investigation into the death of Ilerioluwa Olademeji Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad, Nollywood actress turned politician Tonto Dikeh has alleged that Naira Marley, the boss of Marlian Records, has influential politicians supporting him. Dikeh made these claims in response to a tweet by Naira Marley after his recent arrest by the police.
Naira Marley, who had just returned to Nigeria, was taken into custody by the Lagos Police following the investigation into the circumstances surrounding Mohbad’s death. Confirming the arrest, Benjamin Hundeyin, the Lagos Police spokesperson, revealed that Naira Marley was apprehended shortly after his arrival.
In a post on his social media account, Naira Marley expressed his willingness to cooperate with the authorities, stating, “It’s important I do my part for Imole. I will be meeting with the police with hopes for the truth to be uncovered and for justice to prevail.”
However, a widely circulated video on social media showed Naira Marley being guarded at the airport before being taken into police custody. This prompted Tonto Dikeh to question the singer’s confidence while in custody. She took to her Instagram page to express her thoughts, stating, “Look who has come back to Nigeria to assist the police investigate why he and Sam Larry tortured Mohbad. I ask again, who are those protecting Naira Marley? In the right country, he should be in handcuffs and chains, rather than having a phone to tweet. Naira Marley’s confidence looks to me like he has some top political underdogs by his side.”
The allegations made by Tonto Dikeh have sparked further speculation about the involvement of powerful figures in Naira Marley’s case. The controversies surrounding Mohbad’s death have already implicated Naira Marley and his associate, Sam Larry, who were accused of subjecting Mohbad to relentless bullying for leaving the record label. Several documents and videos supporting these claims have surfaced on social media, leading to public outrage.
As the investigation continues, many are now questioning the extent of Naira Marley’s connections and whether they could be influencing the outcome of the case. Tonto Dikeh’s comments have added fuel to the fire, with people demanding a fair and impartial investigation into Mohbad’s death.
Naira Marley’s rise to fame has been marked by controversies and legal issues. Despite facing multiple charges in the past, he has managed to maintain a strong following and influence within the music industry. His association with the “Marlian” movement has garnered a dedicated fan base, but it has also attracted criticism for promoting questionable values and behaviors.
With Tonto Dikeh’s allegations, the focus has now shifted to the potential involvement of politicians in Naira Marley’s affairs. The actress’s comments have raised concerns about the fairness of the investigation and whether justice will be served.
It remains to be seen how these allegations will impact the ongoing investigation and Naira Marley’s reputation. As the public awaits further updates, the pressure is mounting for a thorough and transparent examination of the events surrounding Mohbad’s death.
