Abdulazeez Fashola, a Nigerian musician professionally known as Naira Marley, and his associate, Samson Eletu, aka Sam Larry, have sued Lagos State magistrate, Adeola Olatunbosun, and the police.
The pair thus filed a fundamental rights suit
before the Federal High Court in Lagos, to challenge their detention over the death of singer Ilerioluwa Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad.
Sam Larry and Naira Marley are now demanding N20m in damages each from the defendants.
The suit was filed through their lawyer, Olalekan Ojo (SAN), urging the court to declare that their continued detention at the Homicide Section of the Lagos State Police Command, Panti, since October 4, 2023, is an unjustifiable violation of their rights.
