The campaign titled: “Ban Marlian Music” had garnered over 47,000 petitions as of 12.30 pm on Friday.
Giving reasons for the petition, the advocates explained that Marlian Records recruits young boys to peddle drugs as well as indulge in drug-related activities.

The campaigners stated that “it could be seen in a trending case of ex-signee Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba popularly known as Mohbad/Imole; how his life was cut short, how his fundamental rights as a human being was trampled upon just before his demise.
“The perpetrators of the acts include Sam Larry And Naira Marley as evidences are being opened up to the public how he was beaten, trailed as well as killed by these men – Sam Larry And Naira Marley.”
