NDLEA Spokesperson, Babafemi, Denies Arresting Late Mohbad Alongside Zinoleesky In 2022


NDLEA Spokesperson, Babafemi, Denies Arresting Late Mohbad Alongside Zinoleesky In 2022

The spokesman for the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, Femi Babafemi, has denied claims that the late singer Ilerioluwa Aloba, aka MohBad, was poisoned in their custody.

In an X post on Saturday, Babafemi argued that the deceased was not one of the Marlian Music acts arrested by the agency in 2022, as speculated by many.

He added that this makes it impossible for MohBad to have been poisoned in their custody.

Babafemi shared a link to an online platform that detailed the arrest of six people, two females, and four males, in the persons of Oniyide Azeez (Zinoleesky), Owoeye Michael (m), and Abimbola Ogbe (m).

Others are Dominica Chinwe (f), Olaolohun Shubomi Mariam (f), and Ibrahim Alawo (m).

“This is an authentic account of the arrest and detention of some Malian artists in Feb 2022, an incident that has now been twisted by purveyors of fake news to say Mohbad was poisoned or detained by the agency.

“I hope, they’ll be bold enough to defend their claims when the hand of the law catches them,” Babafemi tweeted.

Babafemi’s tweet is coming hours after a now-viral video of the deceased surfaced online, showing him weeping in what looked like a hospital.

In the video, MohBad claimed he was harassed and given a white substance to consume.

“They gave me water to drink, it was inside a bottle of water plastic. They said I was using drugs. I was the only one who drank it, they didn’t give others to drink. I won’t lie. Then they told me to go home and told the others to wait.

“They even hit a gun on my head. I saved Zino in that video but Zino snitched on me.”
