MohBad Not Poisoned In Our Custody – NDLEA Spokesperson

Femi Babafemi, the spokesperson for the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), has refuted claims that the late singer Ilerioluwa Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad, was poisoned while in their custody.

In an official statement posted on Saturday, Babafemi clarified that Mohbad was not among the Marlian Music artists arrested by the agency in 2022, contrary to popular speculation.

He emphasized that this fact makes it impossible for Mohbad to have been poisoned during any time spent in their custody.

To substantiate his point, Babafemi provided a link to an online platform which had reported the arrests of six individuals. Among those arrested were Oniyide Azeez (known as Zinoleesky), Owoeye Michael, and Abimbola Ogbe, comprising two females and four males.

“This is an authentic account of the arrest and detention of some Malian artistes in Feb 2022, an incident that has now been twisted by purveyors of fake news to say Mohbad was poisoned or detained by the agency.

“I hope, they’ll be bold enough to defend their claims when the hand of the law catches them,” Babafemi tweeted.

Babafemi’s tweet is coming hours after a now-viral video of the deceased surfaced online, showing him weeping in what looked like a hospital.

In the video, MohBad claimed he was harassed and given a white substance to consume.

“They gave me water to drink, it was inside a bottle of water plastic. They said I was using drugs. I was the only one who drank it, they didn’t give others to drink. I won’t lie. Then they told me to go home and told the others to wait.

“They even hit a gun on my head. I saved Zino in that video but Zino snitched on me.”
