Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh has reacted to the first public statement from Sam Larry, following his arrest by the Nigerian police.
Kemi Filani reported on Thursday night, that the Lagos Police Command confirmed the arrest of Sam Larry, stating that Sam is currently assisting the Police with the investigation.
In his first statement, Sam Larry denied any involvement in Mohbad’s death, stating that the incident that unfolded had been gravely misconstrued.
He addressed the viral video of him assaulting Mohbad, claiming that he had paid Mohbad to perform at his mother’s bridal ceremony, and he had failed to show up. Hence, he stormed his shoot to talk things out with him.
His explanation didn’t sit well with many, who felt it was fabricated to make him seem innocent.
Tonto, who has been one of the leading celebrities fighting for the deceased, took to her Instagram page to slam the Nigerian police, noting how the news of Sam Larry’s arrest was only released by the police because Nigerians had their eyes on the ground.
Now, after seeing the child’s play statement made by Sam Larry, wasn’t believable, they made a U-turn, claiming it’s fake.
Tonto Dikeh added that no matter what stunts the police pull, Nigerians must get justice for Mohbad.
“The news of Sam Larry being in Nigeria was only released by the police because we had eyes on the ground and released a video 1st (check the timing and make your conclusions). Now after seeing the child’s play statement didn’t make it, they now say it’s fake.
No matter what they do we must get justice for Mohbad”.
