- Some Nigerians accused the agency of poisoning the singer during his purported arrest and detention
- NDLEA spokesman, Femi Babafemi, said the musician was never arrested nor detained by the agency.
The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) says singer Ilerioluwa Aloba, aka MohBad, was not poisoned in its custody.
The anti-narcotics agency made the clarification amid the controversy surrounding the death of the late musician.
After Mohbad’s death last Tuesday in an unclear circumstance, a video surfaced showing the 27-year-old artiste writhing in pain and crying profusely on a hospital bed.
Shortly after, some Nigerians accused the agency of poisoning the singer during his purported arrest and detention.
In the video, Mohbad claimed he was given a liquid substance while in the custody of the NDLEA, repeatedly hit with the butt of a gun and was later asked to go home.
But NDLEA spokesman, Femi Babafemi, said the musician was never arrested nor detained by the agency.
He argued that the deceased was not one of the Marlian Music acts arrested by the agency in 2022, contrary to the speculations by many, adding that this makes it impossible for Mohbad to have been poisoned in their custody.
This is authentic account of the arrest and detention of some Malian artistes in Feb 2022, an incident that has now been twisted by purveyors of fake news to say Mohbad was poisoned in @ndlea_nigeria custody even when he was never arrested or…/1 https://t.co/7ptWjDOE5P

Babafemi also shared a link by an online platform (not Within Nigeria) chronicling the arrest of six people, two females, and four males, in the persons of Oniyide Azeez (Zinoleesky), Owoeye Michael and Abimbola Ogbe.
Others are Dominica Chinwe, Olaolohun Shubomi Mariam, and Ibrahim Alawo.
“This is an authentic account of the arrest and detention of some Malian artistes in Feb 2022, an incident that has now been twisted by purveyors of fake news to say Mohbad was poisoned or detained by the agency,” Babafemi tweeted.
“I hope, they’ll be bold enough to defend their claims when the hand of the law catches them.”
