NDLEA Counters Lagos CP, Says ‘It Responded To Police Inquiry Over MohBad’s Arrest

 

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency said it had responded to inquiries by the Lagos State Police Command over a viral video of the now late singer, Ilerioluwa Aloba, also known as Mohbad, accusing the agency of arresting and giving him an unknown substance to drink that affected his health.

The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Idowu Owohunwa, at a press briefing on Friday, had stated that the police were yet to get a response from the NDLEA on social media allegations bordering on the alleged arrest and detention of Mohbad.

Reacting to the allegations on Saturday, the agency in a statement signed by the Director, Media and Advocacy, Femi Babafemi, said, “Following media enquiries 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 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.
