BREAKING: NDLEA finally Speaks On Arresting Mohbad, Releases Photo Evidence






Newslens NG reports that the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has replied the Nigeria Police Force on the claims made by the state commissioner of Police on Friday and equally denied arresting the late Nigerian singer, Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba, also known as Mohbad, at any time.
The agency was reacting to a statement by the Commissioner of Police in Lagos State, Idowu Owohunwa.

Speaking at a press briefing on Friday, CP Owohunwa had stated that the police was yet to get a response from the NDLEA on social media allegations bordering on alleged arrest and detention of Mohbad.


Recall that a viral video of Mohbad had shown the singer accusing the Agency of arresting and giving him an unknown substance to drink that affected his health.

But in a swift reaction in a statement titled ‘Mohbad: NDLEA responded to police inquiry since September 28, 2023,’ the agency’s spokesperson, Femi Babafemi, said NDLEA had since responded to the police.


The statement read: “Following media inquiries on the claim by the Lagos state police command at a press conference on Friday 6th October 2023 that it was yet to get a response from the NDLEA on social media allegations bordering on alleged arrest and detention of the late artiste, Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba, aka MohBad, the Agency will like to state that indeed its response was sent and received by the police since Thursday 28th September 2023.

“Indeed, to show the seriousness with which the Agency treated the issue, our formal response dated Thursday, 28th September 2023, was sent by flight to Lagos, delivered and received by the police the same Thursday, 28th September.


“The summary of our response is reproduced below for the benefit of the inquiring public: “We also heard the unsubstantiated allegation on social media that Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba, aka MohBad, was arrested and detained by NDLEA on the 24th of February 2022 and given a substance to drink. In response to this allegation, we wish to state categorically that MohBad was never arrested, neither was he ever detained in the custody of the NDLEA on the said date or any other date before or after. The foregoing being the case, the issue of giving him any substance to drink does not arise.”

“A copy of the acknowledged letter is attached to this clarification.”
