Naira Marley, Sam Larry says fundamental human rights infringed upon



…sue police, magistrate for N40 million 

Following the death of 27-year-old Ilerioluwa Aloba, aka Mohbad, singer Naira Marley has filed a fundamental human rights suit. 

Abdulazeez Fashola popularly known as Naira Marley, and Lagos socialite, Samson Eletu, alias Sam Larry have been caught up in the intricacies of the case and they both filed the suit to challenge their continued detention. 

The defendants in the suit filed before the Federal High Court in Lagos were the police and the Lagos magistrate, Adeola Olatunbosun, who ordered their remand in police custody for 21 days.

Naira Marley and Sam Larry are each demanding N20m damages from the defendants.

In the suit filed through their lawyer, Mr. Olalekan Ojo (SAN), they are urging the court to declare that the continued detention “at the Homicide Section of the Lagos State Police Command, Panti, Yaba, Lagos State since October 4th, 2023,” constituted a violation of their rights. 

They are seeking “an order of the court releasing the applicants forthwith.”

In the affidavits attached to their suits,  deponents said, “Their travails started between October 3 and 4, 2023 when they were arrested by the police on the alleged connection of the applicants with the death of one Ilerioluwa Aloba, aka Mohbad.

“On the 4th day of October 2023,  the Commissioner of Police sought an order in the Magistrates’ Court, held at Yaba, to remand them for 30 days.

“Chief Magistrate Adeola Olatunbosun granted the police application to remand them for only 21 days in the custody of the police.

“The 21-day remand order granted by Chief Magistrate Olatunbosun has since lapsed on October 26, 2023, and the order has not been renewed.”
