In a shocking turn of events, famous Nollywood actress Tonto Dikeh has raised eyebrows by alleging that Naira Marley, the Marlian Record boss, enjoys the backing of influential political figures in the country.
This revelation comes amidst an ongoing investigation into the tragic death of Naira Marley’s former signee, Ilerioluwa Olademeji Aloba, widely known as Mohbad.
Lagos Police spokesperson, Benjamin Hundeyin, confirmed on Tuesday night that Naira Marley had been apprehended shortly after his return to Nigeria. The arrest was made in connection with the investigation surrounding Mohbad’s untimely demise.
In a subsequent tweet, Naira Marley announced his return to Lagos, emphasizing his commitment to assisting the authorities in unraveling the truth and ensuring justice prevails. He stated, “It’s important I do my part for Imole. I will be meeting with the police with hopes for the truth to be uncovered and for justice to prevail.”
However, Tonto Dikeh took to her Instagram page to voice her concerns. She questioned why Naira Marley was seemingly at ease, free to tweet from his phone, when, in her opinion, he should be in handcuffs and chains if justice were to be served. Dikeh’s statement was scathing, as she insinuated that Naira Marley might have influential political allies shielding him.
In her Instagram post, Dikeh remarked, “Look who has come back to NIGERIA to assist the police investigate why he and Sam Larry tortured Mohbad. I ask again who are those protecting Naira Marley? In the right country, he should be in handcuffs and chains, rather than having a phone to tweet. Naira Marley’s confidence looks to me like he has some top political underdogs by his side.”
The controversy surrounding Mohbad’s death emerged when documents and videos surfaced on social media, implicating Naira Marley and his associate, Sam Larry, in subjecting Mohbad to relentless bullying after his departure from the record label.
As investigations continue into the tragic incident, the Nigerian public watches closely, eager to see if Tonto Dikeh’s allegations regarding Naira Marley’s alleged political connections will be substantiated or disproven.
