The office of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, has released Marlain Singer, Mohbad (real name – Ilerioluwa Oladimeji). His release was confirmed by Naira Marley via a tweet, adding that Oniyide Azeez popularly known as Zinoleesky is still in custody.
An eyewitness claimed that the officials carried out the arrest without having any search warrants, after a viral video showed operatives of the NDLEA manhandling the musicians, whilst shooting into the air to force them into waiting vans.
The Marlain music boss, Naira Marley (real name, Azeez Adeshina Fashola) in his tweets accused the NDLEA of physically assaulting Mohad after being illegally arrested from his residence in Lekki.
The popular singer also asked the anti-narcotic agency to release his Zinoleeksy from their custody, claiming that the singers are under a lot of stress and torment. He wrote:
“NDLEA has released Mohbad after physically assaulting him, Zinoleesky is still in custody. The boys are under a lot of stress after being ambushed in the middle of the night with no warrant. I’m urgently returning to Lagos now now now.
“What is happening to my brothers is disgusting. The injustice is unfair and this is beginning to look like a pattern. First me now my artists. Free Zinoleesky, free shubomi, free micee and dosky.
