Controversial socialite, Samsom Erinfolami Balogun, popularly known as Sam Larry, has denied any role in the death of singer Ilerioluwa Aloba, also known as Mohbad.
This is coming after reactions trailed an old video where Mohbad was seen being assaulted by some people allegedly led by Sam Larry during a video shoot.
A petition by the late singer surfaced online, where the deceased alleged that his life was under threat and sought police protection from Sam Larry and others.
In a video circulating on social media, Larry, who hasn’t commented on the controversy since the singer’s passing, said he loved Mohbad and that he was like a brother to him.
Speaking in Yoruba, Larry said, “I want to state that I had nothing to do with Mohbad’s death. He was my brother and when he was in Marlian records he knew I loved him. Even his wife, everybody knows that I love him.
“Having a fight does not mean that I want him dead. I cannot kill Mohbad.
“The videos going viral are of old events of things that happened last year.
“Zlatan is my witness. Call Zlatan and ask him.”
Recall that the Force Public Relations Officer, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, in a statement on Thursday said that the police would carry out a diligent investigation into the cause of Mohbad’s death.
