Iyabo Ojo Politicised Mohbad’s Death as Movement Against Naira Marley – Seun Kuti

Afrobeat singer, Seun Kuti has made an accusation against Nollywood actress, Iyabo Ojo.
He claimed Iyabo Ojo politicised the death of Nigerian singer, Mohbad, as a movement against his former record label boss, Naira Marley.

He made the allegations while reacting to Ojo’s claims that he is “confusing” the youth for saying controversial self-styled social media activist, VeryDarkMan is “a necessity.”
Kuti said he doesn’t believe Ojo’s activism was earned at getting justice for the late singer but targeted at Naira Marley.
Speaking in a video message shared via his Instagram account, the Afrobeat singer said: “I have watched your video, Iyabo [Ojo] but throughout the video you’re just talking about what VeryDarkMan did yet you said I was the one you were calling out.
 
“But there is one thing that I hold onto, you said I’m a confusionist confusing the youths. [Yoruba] This life is wicked. I’ve been on your podcast before because I bear you no grudge. I bear you no ill will. I stand personal beef. But when it’s political… It was you guys who politicised the death of Mohbad.
 
“You politicised his death. And I don’t believe you guys politicised his death because you were looking for justice because now what’s the findings? Did you accept the government’s findings? I read somewhere that the government said Mohbad died of substance abuse. If you guys believe the government findings, what are we doing? Justice for what?
 
“I believe personally, it was a movement against Naira Marley at the end of the day. I don’t see anything other than that. You said we are fighting against bullying in the Nigerian society and 70-80 per cent of celebrities are cultists.
 
“These are gangs of bullies. Bullies bullying everybody yet everyone is their friend. The gangs constantly bully people and celebrities are their members.
 
“Everybody is a friend of these members, nobody called them out for associating with gangs even after what happened to Mohbad. What’s happening? Is there any movement against confraternities in Nigeria? Where is the movement for justice for Mohbad now?”

Naira Marley’s Cybercrime Trial Stalled

The alleged cybercrime trial of singer, Azeez Fashola a.k.a Naira Marley, was stalled on Thursday at the Federal High Court in Lagos.

The trial could not proceed because parties in the suit are still awaiting approval of a fiat by the chief judge of the Federal High Court.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission is prosecuting Fashola for alleged cyber crime.

The anti-graft agency preferred the charges on May 14, 2019.

Fashola, who sang the popular song “Am I a Yahoo Boy”, was arraigned on May 20, 2019, before Justice Nicholas Oweibo, who pleaded not guilty.

Oweibo granted him bail in the sum of two million naira with two sureties in like sum.

Witnesses were still being led in evidence by EFCC when Oweibo was transfered out of the Lagos division of the court.

The case was, therefore, transferred to Justice Isaac Dipeolu.

On March 6, when the case was first mentioned before Dipeolu, both defence and prosecution counsel confirmed to the judge that there was a pending fiat awaiting a response from the chief judge.

 

The judge consequently adjourned the case until Thursday (May 30) for the report.

On Thursday, journalists learnt that the fiat had yet to be approved.

There is no slated date yet for the continuation of the trial.

According to the EFCC, the defendant committed the offences on different dates between Nov. 26, 2018, and Dec.11, 2018, as well as on May 10, 2019.

The commission alleged that Fashola and his accomplices conspired to use different Access Bank automated teller machine cards to defraud their victims.

It alleged that the defendant used a bank credit card issued to another person in a bid to obtain fraudulent financial gains.

The EFCC also said that the defendant possessed counterfeit credit cards belonging to different people, with intent to defraud, which, it said, amounted to theft.

The alleged offences contravene Sections 1 23 (1) (b), 27 (1), and 33(9) of the Cyber Crime (Prohibition) Prevention Act, 2015.

Controversial singer, Naira Marley has incurred the wrath of social media users after he demanded DNA test to be conducted on Mohbad’s son.

“Who is the father of the child,” the chorus of the song titled ‘DNA is Needed’ stated in the Yoruba language.

Naira should be the last person contributing on this issue but na wunmi fault too… All those supporting naira’s career after all the footage shown your kids will be bullied all their lives in everything they do, they would get to the same breaking point mohbad got to that led to him being depressed, vulnerable and suicidal and if naira contributed to mohs death it will be your own portion cause I’m surprised people still support this guy.”
_.chinnel opined: “Wunmi and Mohbad’s family brought this upon themselves,if they had respected the late artist memory, kept their issue off the media and was more focus on getting justice for him,this fa-iled record label won’t have the guts to release a diss track..”

Mohbad: Naira Marley, Prime Boy, Others To Appear Before Coroner October 25

 

The coroner’s inquiry investigating the circumstances surrounding the demise of the singer Ilerioluwa Aloba, widely known as Mohbad, has summoned the controversial artist Abdulazeez Fashola, also known as Naira Marley, as well as Owodunni Eletu, who goes by Sam Larry, and Owodunni Ibrahim, known as Primeboy. They are required to attend the inquiry on October 25, 2023.

At the inquest, Magistrate Sotobi Adedayo of the Candide Johnson Courthouse, Ikorodu, Lagos State, on Friday, October 13, 2023, instructed the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Panti, to ensure the presence of Naira Marley, Sam Larry and Primeboy at the next adjourned date slated for October 25, 2023. Marley and Larry are currently being detained at Panti.

The magistrate also called for cooperation in the investigation for speedy and fast justice delivery on the death of the singer, while advising that interested parties should not encourage delay in order for MohBad’s remains to be finally laid to rest.

This was even as an Assistant Superintendent of Police, Muhammad Yusuf, an investigating police officer attached to the homicide section of the SCID, stated that in the course of their investigation, there was no evidence beyond reasonable doubt that Naira Marley assaulted Mohbad, nor was there any evidence that Sam Larry and Naira Marley were linked with Feyisayo Ogedengbe, the nurse who administered the injection to the deceased.

Mohbad died on Tuesday, September 12, and on Friday, October 6, after weeks of investigation, the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Idowu Owohunwa, announced that the auxiliary nurse, Feyisayo Ogedengbe, who injected Mohbad; his friend and fellow artiste, Ibrahim Owoduni, aka Prime Boy; and another friend, Ayobami Sadiq, were the prime suspects in the singer’s death.

He added that the police quizzed 26 people, while five suspects had so far been identified, arrested, detained and interrogated on their alleged roles in the sequence of events that led to the singer’s death. According to him, Ogedengbe administered three different injections, which are believed to have occasioned the chain of reactions that directly resulted in the death of the singer
