Mohbad: Primeboy Surrenders To Police Hours After He Was Declared Wanted

Primeboy, a boyhood friend of the late musician Mohbad, has turned himself in to police in Lagos, less than a day after being declared wanted.

Primeboy was declared wanted on Wednesday after failing to respond to an invitation to participate in an inquiry into Mohbad’s killing.

The police had also announced a N1 million reward to anyone with information leading to his arrest.

However, the Lagos police spokesperson, Benjamin Hundeyin, confirmed in a statement via X on Thursday that Primeboy had handed himself in and was being interrogated.

“Following his being declared wanted, Owodunni Ibrahim Oluwatosin aka Primeboy has turned himself in,” the statement reads.

“He has, immediately, been taken into custody for interrogation and other necessary actions.

“The Lagos State Police Command once again assures family, friends, fans of Mohbad and the general public that no stone will be left unturned in ensuring a most diligent investigation. The Command equally assures that all persons found culpable in the death of Mr Ilerioluwa Aloba aka Mohbad will definitely be brought to justice.”

Mohbad died on September 12 and was buried the next day.

Primeboy is a person of interest in the singer’s death.

There were insinuations on social media that Mohbad and Primeboy had a rift before his demise — although the singer’s friend denied the rumours.

Thousands of Nigerians have demanded justice for Mohbad in nationwide protests.

On September 18, the Lagos police inaugurated a 13-man special investigation team to probe the singer’s death.

Idowu Owohunwa, the state commissioner of police, vowed that the command will use all its powers to fish out everyone indicted in the case.

On September 21, the police exhumed Mohbad’s corpse for autopsy and are awaiting the results.

The Lagos police took Naira Marley in its custody for interrogation on Tuesday while Sam Larry was detained on September 29.

The pair, who are also suspects in the case, were remanded in police custody for 21 days by a Lagos court.
