The Lagos State Magistrates’ Court in Yaba has ordered the return into custody of Fisayo Ogedengbe, a 37-year-old auxiliary nurse, and Ayobani Sadiq, both held in connection with the Mohbad murder case.
In its ruling on Monday regarding the case, it was determined that Fisayo Ogedengbe should be sent back to custody while Ayobani Sadiq is to be returned to police custody.
The nurse, Fisayo Ogedengbe is alleged to have given the late singer some injections that resulted in his death while being held as a suspect in the case, should be returned to police custody.
The magistrate, Adeola Olatunbosun, however, granted bail in the sum of N20 million to each of Mohbad’s ex-boss, Azeez Fashola, aka Naira Marley, and a Lagos socialite, Balogun Eletu, aka Sam Larry, who were also implicated in Mohbad’s death and taken into custody by the police on October 6.
“The defendants (Naira Marley and Sam Larry) are hereby granted bail in the sum of N20m with three responsible sureties in like sum pending the legal advice from the Office of the Directorate of Public Prosecution.
“Also, one of the sureties must own a landed property. As part of the bail conditions, the defendants are to surrender their passports and make weekly appearances at the State Criminal Investigation Department.”
Olatunbosun also warned that no one should contact her directly on the case.
“Any attempts to contact me directly would be recorded and potentially disclosed in open court proceedings,” she added.
According to the police, the investigation into the case is still ongoing; hence, Olatunbosun adjourned the case till November 29 for DPP advice.
Fisayo Ogedengbe, an auxiliary nurse, was initially arrested in relation to the injection given to Mohbad, the victim in the case. The court’s decision to send her back to custody suggests that further investigation or legal proceedings are required before a final ruling can be made.
The precise details surrounding the Mohbad case have not been disclosed at this time, and it is likely that ongoing investigations are being conducted to shed light on the matter.
