Nollywood actress Tonto Dikeh has expressed deep disappointment with the Nigeria Police Force, particularly the Lagos State Police Command, over the release of singer Naira Marley and show promoter Sam Larry.
The release came amidst investigations into their alleged involvement in the circumstances surrounding the death of Nigerian singer Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba, widely known as Mohbad.
Mohbad's tragic death on September 12 sparked controversy, leading to the arrest of Naira Marley and Sam Larry after videos and photos surfaced online suggesting their possible connection to the incident.
The duo was arraigned and remanded on October 6, 2023 facing allegations related to the circumstances of the young artist's death.
In a lengthy Instagram post, Tonto Dikeh criticized the police for what she perceived as carelessness and slowness in handling the investigation.
The actress, who has been actively advocating for justice for Mohbad, urged the police to release the late singer's body for a befitting burial.
"Nigeria Police Force @ the spokesman of the Lagos State Police Command, Benjamin Hundeyin, give us Mohbad’s corpse for a befitting burial.
“We are tired of your carelessness and showiness. If no one speaks I will. I have invested too much of my emotions, my time and my love to see this justice go through.
“This is not a case to be swept under the carpet. We want justice for Mohbad," Tonto Dikeh wrote.
