The Lagos Annex, Force Criminal Investigation Department of the Nigeria Police Force, Zone 2, Alagbon, has disclosed that it invited music promoter, Samson Balogun, Popularly known as Sam Larry and others, after receiving a petition filed by late singer, Ilerioluwa Aloba better known as Mohbad, over alleged assault, amongst others.
This was gathered in a chat with Punch, where the spokesperson for the Lagos Annex of the FCID, Oluniyi Ogundeyi, revealed that the late singer, Mohbad refused to show up at the police station to adopt and defend his petition, and also provide proof of the allegations, to assist the police in prosecuting the suspects, if necessary.

But Mohbad refused to show up to defend his petition and also provide evidence to assist the police in carrying out a proper investigation and forward the matter to the legal department for prosecution, if necessary.
