Naira Marley has declared his readiness to return to Nigeria to clear his name of all allegations of being involved in Mohbad’s death, only if security agencies will guarantee his safety.
You’d recall that Naira Marley has been linked to the demise of Mohbad after videos of Mohbad being assaulted by his associates surfaced online.
Speaking in an interview with Reno Omokri, Naira said he is willing to cooperate with the ongoing investigations, but there’s already a mob who have been poisoned by the media to come against him, and he can’t come back to Nigeria if his safety is not guaranteed.
During the interview, Reno Omokri asked Naira Marley if he is willing to come back to Nigeria. Responding, he said;
‘’100% if they can guarantee my safety. There are a lot of angry men that don’t want me there. They know the truth but they have been poisoned by the media. If they can guarantee my safety, I will be there”.
Reacting to videos of Mohbad being attacked and claims that he had a hand in the attacks, Naira Marley said;
‘’There is no truth whatsoever. Even if you look at his police statement, he never mentioned Naira Marley involved. I do not have any issue whatsoever with him. I have never instructed anybody to touch him. I have never touched him. You will never see a video of me touching him. I have never sent anybody to touch him. That is just lies.”
Naira Marley also acknowledged that he is indeed friends with Sam Larry but that they have never had any encountered together with Mohbad.
Naira Marley said Mohbad was paranoid all the time and that he paid for the late singer to undergo brain scans but that Mohbad refused to follow through with his treatment. He claimed that Mohbad argued that his parents are the ones that will be able to help him.
‘’I did pay for a lot of scans and he that that is what he wanted to do, get scanned and I paid for a lot of them. Like I said he is a little bit paranoid. I was trying to take it easy, trying to find out what’s wrong because remember, he had already made a video to sif anything happened to him, it’s Naira Marley. So I was just trying to find the best help for him. He did scan. I also spoke about if he can travel out to check properly. Then he said it is his mum and dad that will understand what was wrong and then his mum and dad said they wanted to take him for treatment, they want to take him to go look after him’
Naira Marley also denied claims that DJ Splash was signed to his label.
‘’DJ Splash was never signed to Marlian music. He is a DJ. He has never DJ’d with me on a show. They just gave him a title because I have a picture with him. When whatever happened to him happened to him, he was not at my house.”
