Sam Larry, a Nigerian entertainment promoter has revealed that he attacked late singer, Mohbad because he failed to show up at an event he was paid for.

Balogun Eletu, better known as Sam Larry was reportedly arrested by the state police command over an ongoing investigation into the circumstances leading to the death of singer Ilerioluwa Aloba aka Mohbad.

The promoter stated this in a statement issued on Friday, after he was invited to the Force Headquarters in Ikeja.

DopeReporters had reported that videos of Sam Larry physically attacking Mohbad at different locations had surfaced online after the singer’s death.

Larry defended his action “Two years ago, I gave N2 million to lleri to perform at my mother’s annual remembrance concert in lkorodu. The boy never turned up, so I called him to ask why. He then said he was not feeling well, and when I asked for a refund, he said he lost his phone and money recently when the NDLEA raided his place.

“Since he was leaving Marlian Records, he claimed he was now broke and had no commitment to repay.

“I left it at that. Later, I heard that this same boy was having a music video shoot next door, practically on the next street to my house. So, I went there to ask for my money again.

“We had an argument that lasted 5 minutes. Even one of his friends insisted he was going to pay the money. Up until today, not one kobo has been repaid, and this incident happened early last year. I have since moved on.

” I tyraveled to Kenya to find a new African act that can perform at my mother’s concert this year. I have been away since August 20th, and till now, I don’t know anything other than what was written in the blogs and the press. I don’t even know where he lives.

“I only know his former label boss and their house. I don’t know any nurse, doctor, or hospital. I don’t know anything about his movements. I don’t have that time. I have lost a lot more money than that before; you win some, you lose some.

“That is my story, case closed. I came here willingly and happily. I know nothing about how the musician died.”
