Reacting to the speculation, the Lagos Annex, Force Criminal Investigation Department of the NPF, Zone 2, Alagbon, denied arresting the duo for questioning.

The spokesperson for the Lagos Annex of the FCID, Oluniyi Ogundeyi, denied the speculation on Thursday night, in an exclusive telephone interview with Punch.

“The report is false; it is a lie; no one has been arrested. The police did not arrest Naira Marley or Sam Larry,” Ogundeyi said.

The rumour followed allegations on social media that Mohbad’s former boss, Naira Marley, had on several occasions instigated Larry and others to intimidate and assault the deceased for exiting Marlians Records.

The social media reactions came after a video where Larry and others were seen harassing Mohbad surfaced online.

In the video, Mohbad and another singer Omoniyi Temidayo aka Zlatan Ibile, were on set for a music video when Larry stormed the scene with some boys targeting Mohbad who ran away in fear. Zlatan, however, tried to save the situation as he stood up to Larry and his allies to forestall any attack or bullying on Mohbad.

Since the video, Nigerians on social media have taken to Naira Marley and Larry’s Instagram pages to attack them for bullying and threatening the late singer.

Larry, has since deactivated his Instagram account following the torrents of cyber attacks he has received.
