Shubomi Fashola, sister rapper Azeez Fashola, aka Naira Marley, has said his brother should be charged for the death of his former signee Mohbad if there’s an evidence of his involvement.
Recall that a magistrate court in Yaba, Lagos State, on October 4, 2023, remanded Naira Marley and popular socialite Balogun Eletu, also known as Sam Larry, over allegations of bullying of Mohbad.
Although the Lagos State Police Command had sought a 30-day remand for Naira Marley and the others to complete their ongoing investigation, Magistrate Adeola Olatunbosun ruled that a 21-day remand would suffice.
Lamenting the continuous detention of the Marlian Music boss, Shubomi said keeping him in “detention for nearly 30 days, with no charge, no evidence, no sufficient witness, is a violation of his human rights.”
She claimed that her brother was being detained to “appease” a social media mob and he should be charged if there’s an evidence against him.
On her Instagram story on Saturday, she wrote: “Keeping someone who willingly travelled back to help in detention for nearly 30 days with no charge, no evidence, no sufficient witness is a violation of his human rights. Keeping him in custody to appease social media and the internet mob is crazy.
“If you have evidence against him for anything he’s been accused of, charge him! But if you don’t, release him. It shouldn’t take this long for the investigation to be done.
“We all want the truth! We all want justice. What is the delay? We’ve already lost one person; trying to lynch another is not going to bring about justice. I pray nobody experiences being accused of an atrocity you have no hand in. God is in control!”
