BREAKING: Sam Larry And Naira Marley Granted N20 Million Bail Over #Mohbad’s Death—-The Genius Media Nigeria reports that the court has granted Nigerian musician, Naira Marley and his friend, Sam Larry a bail of N20 Million each with 3 sureties.
They were arrested in connection with the death of musician, Mohbad.
They are to deposit their international passport and report at State CID every Tuesday. The magistrate warns that if anyone calls her number, it will be recorded and played in the open court.
Naira Marley and Sam Larry were instructed to surrender their international passports and to appear weekly at the State Criminal Investigation Department (CID).
The Magistrate sternly warned them to refrain from attempting to contact her directly, as any such attempts would be documented and potentially disclosed during court proceedings.
It can be recalled that Naira Marley and Sam Larry were accused of physically assaulting late singer Mohbad, which resulted in their remand by the police.
Last week, they took legal action against the Magistrate and the Police, filing a lawsuit in the Federal High Court in Lagos. They named the police and the magistrate as defendants and are seeking N20 million each in damages.
This lawsuit has sparked numerous conversations, with some people showing support for their cause and others highlighting the fact that they were accused of murder, leading to their detention.
This development came after a Magistrate Court in Yaba, Lagos State, on October 4, 2023, remanded Naira Marley and Sam Larry over allegations of bullying the late former Marlian Music signee Mohbad.
Although the Lagos State Police Command initially requested a 30-day remand for Naira Marley and the others in order to complete their ongoing investigation, Magistrate Adeola Olatunbosun ruled that a 21-day remand would be sufficient.
