In a recent tell-all interview with prominent Nigerian activist Reno Omokri, Naira Marley opened up about his apprehensions and explained the reasons behind his reluctance to return to Nigeria in the wake of the tragic passing of Mohbad.
The untimely death of young and talented artist Mohbad sent shockwaves through the Nigerian music industry and left fans and colleagues grappling with grief. As news of his passing broke, it wasn’t long before various circumstances and incidents began to connect Naira Marley to this devastating loss.
These associations, coupled with the fact that Naira Marley is currently abroad, have raised eyebrows and ignited a lot of questions from both the public and the authorities.
Amid growing suspicions, many Nigerians have voiced their concerns, demanding that Naira Marley return to Nigeria to address the allegations and clear his name if he is truly innocent. The sentiment seems to be that his return will dispel the suspicion that hangs over him. However, Naira Marley has chosen to address these concerns head-on and clarify his position.
In the interview with Reno Omokri, Naira Marley did not mince words. He explained that he is fully prepared to return to Nigeria, provided that the security agencies can guarantee his safety.
The situation surrounding Mohbad’s death has taken an unexpected turn with actress and activist Iyabo Ojo entering the conversation. Kemi Filani had previously reported that actress Iyabo Ojo had disclosed that the Nigerian police have issued invitations to both Naira Marley and Sam Larry for questioning as part of the ongoing investigation. Her revelation came with a clear and stern warning: failure to comply with the police’s instructions and return promptly may result in them being declared wanted.
Also recall that Naira Marley had issued a press release earlier stating that neither he nor his team had ever assaulted Mohbad stands at odds with past tweets from the late artist. In those tweets dating back to 2022, Mohbad alleged that he had been subjected to violence, orchestrated by Naira Marley himself.
