Primeboy Turns Himself In On Mohbad's Case | Fab.ng

Owodunni Ibrahim Oluwatosin who is also known as Primeboy, is currently in police custody undergoing interrogation in connection with the tragic death of the late singer, Mohbad.

SP Benjamin Hundeyin, the Public Relations Officer of the Lagos State Police Command, shared this update in a tweet posted on Thursday, October 5, 2023. Benjamin Hundeyin disclosed that the prime suspect, Primeboy, voluntarily turned himself in after being declared a wanted individual on October 4, 2023.

His tweet read,

 “Following his being declared wanted, Owodunni Ibrahim Oluwatosin aka Primeboy has turned himself in. He has, immediately, been taken into custody for interrogation and other necessary actions.”

Benjamin Hundeyin further emphasized the unwavering commitment of the police force to achieving justice for the late singer, Mohbad, who tragically passed away on September 12, 2023. He assured the public that the police would conduct a thorough investigation and pry into the circumstances surrounding Mohbad’s death.\

“The Lagos State Police Command once again assures family, friends, fans of Mohbad and the general public that no stone will be left unturned in ensuring a most diligent investigation. The Command equally assures that all persons found culpable in the death of Mr Ilerioluwa Aloba aka Mohbad will definitely be brought to justice,” 

…he added.

The official investigations into this case were initiated on September 18, 2023, following widespread demands for justice for Mohbad after his sudden death. Subsequently, the singer’s body was exhumed and transported to the coroner for a comprehensive autopsy. Although the autopsy has been conducted and completed, the results have not yet been made known to the public.

The public outcry for justice intensified after videos showing the harassment that Mohbad endured at the hands of Naira Marley and the Marlian record music label circulated online. Calls for the arrest of Naira Marley gained momentum, but he and his associate, Sam Larry were out of the country at the time.

Naira Marley and Sam Larry returned to Nigeria to cooperate with the ongoing investigations upon receiving invitations for questioning by the police. Shortly thereafter, a warrant for the arrest of Primeboy was issued and made public.

In the intervening period, Naira Marley and Larry have been placed in police custody by the magistrate court for a period of 21 days, while the investigations continue to unfold.

Bobrisky: 6 Months In Ikoyi Prison For Naira Abuse | Fab.ng

Popular Nigerian influencer Idris Okuneye, also known as Bobrisky, was recently sentenced to six months in jail without the option of a fine. The judge, Justice Abimbola Awogboro of the Federal High Court in Lagos, delivered the sentence on Friday, April 12, 2024.

Bobrisky’s arrest by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) last week stemmed from accusations of mutilating Nigerian Naira currency.

The EFCC at the time of the arrest said they had “commenced investigation into her for allegedly spraying naira notes.”

The EFCC investigation revealed that Bobrisky allegedly defaced Nigerian currency at other events in the past. Bobrisky cooperated with the EFCC by showing up for questioning on April 4th and providing statements. The EFCC also initially accused Bobrisky of money laundering, but these charges were dismissed by the court.

Bobrisky’s sentence has sparked mixed reactions from Nigerians. Some believe the punishment is too severe for defacing money, which is sometimes done during celebrations in Nigeria.

“She was used as a scapegoat. Why no option of fine, please???? What point are they trying so hard to prove? I hope she learns to not always brag on social media that she is above the law when she gets out too,” someone said.

They just used her as a scapegoat and if we’re being fair, she doesn’t deserve it. 99% percent of people at events spray money exactly the way she sprayed money in that video. This isn’t fair,” another person said.

Actor Jnr Pope Drowns Hours After Posting A Video On A Boat

Jnr Pope Drowns Hours After Posting A Video On A Boat | Fab.ng

Tragic news for Nollywood. Actor Junior Pope Odonwodo, known as Jnr Pope, passed away on Wednesday, April 10th, 2024. He drowned in a boat accident while on a movie set in Asaba, Delta State.

There were initial reports that he was receiving medical treatment, but this was later confirmed to be inaccurate.

“What God cannot do does not exist. Junior Pope is alive. He is taking treatment in the hospital,” Rollas said in a later deleted post on Instagram.

The Actors Guild of Nigeria’s president, Emeka Rollas, initially announced that Jnr Pope was receiving medical care. This caused some confusion because it wasn’t immediately clear that he had passed away.

Later on Thursday morning, Rollas confirmed the sad news of Jnr Pope’s passing. He expressed his deep regret, saying their initial hope that Jnr Pope would recover was unfortunately short-lived.

“My first post was out of excitement when we noticed his tingling fingers. Two notable hospitals tried their best to revive him but to no avail. God knows the best. We finally lost him.”

Jnr Pope leaves behind a wife and three children.

The Actors Guild President also confirmed that another person, Mr. Friday, had been found. However, there are still three people missing from the boat accident: a makeup artist, a sound guy, and one other person.

This tragedy happened just a few hours after Jnr Pope posted a video on Instagram. The video showed him riding in a wooden boat without a life jacket, which seemed to be part of a scene for the movie he was filming.

“See me lamenting. The risk we take to entertain you. Crossing river 9ja yesterday with no life jacket. Na wahoooooo. Who does that?” Jnr Pope captioned the video.

Status Of Jnr Pope After Drowning Incident Still Unknown | Fab.ng

There’s confusion surrounding the situation of Nollywood actor Jnr Pope Odonwodo after a drowning incident on set. Reports suggest he drowned in a boat accident while filming in Asaba, the Delta State capital, on Wednesday, April 10, 2024.

Multiple sources reported his death, sharing videos of what appeared to be his lifeless body. However, Emeka Rollas, the national president of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), announced late on Wednesday that the actor was responding to medical treatment.

“What God cannot do does not exist. Junior Pope is alive. He is taking treatment in the hospital,” he posted on Instagram. But he removed the post just 30 minutes later, adding to the confusion…

Sadly, two other people who were working on the movie also drowned. Nobody knows their names yet, and there hasn’t been any news about them since it happened.

This accident took place just a few hours after the actor, Pope, posted a video on Instagram. In the video, he was riding a boat made of wood without wearing a life jacket. It seems like this boat ride was for a scene in the movie.

“See me lamenting. The risk we take to entertain you. Crossing river 9ja yesterday with no life jacket. Na wahoooooo. Who does that?” Jnr Pope captioned the video.
