Mohbad’s Father Vows To Approach Court On Son’s Death, Demands Private Autopsy For Late Musician

Joseph Aloba, the father of the late singer, Mohbad, has vowed to go to court to unravel the circumstances that led to the death of the son.

Mr Aloba also called for a private autopsy to be conducted on the late musician to ascertain the real cause of his death.

Recall Mohbad died on September 12, 2023 and was buried the next day. On September 21, his body was exhumed by the police for autopsy.

Mr. Aloba is still not convinced and suspects foul play in the released autopsy report.

According to him, the circumstances surrounding his death are still unknown to him despite the recent autopsy result.

He strongly believes that his son did not die a natural death.

“I was not pleased with the result because there was a lot of delay. We were also informed that the test would be done in the US but it was done in Lagos.

“We verified with the laboratory in the United States and they confirmed that such a name was not sent to them for any test.

“We were told that the autopsy would take 8-10 weeks but we didn’t hear anything until I went on a radio station to seek human rights attention,” he said.

But following the order for exhumation, the autopsy which was carried out in Lagos showed traces of Diphenhydramine, an antihistamine in the late singer’s blood system.

These drugs that were seen during the autopsy are used in the treatment of allergies, stomach problems, cold and anxiety among others which were not meant to lead to his death.

In an interview with Arise TV on Friday and monitored by THE WHISTLER, the deceased’s father disassociated himself from claims making the rounds that he is struggling for his son’s properties with Omowunmi his wife.

When pressed during the interview if indeed he was struggling for the late son’s property, he explained, “I have not entangled myself with any of his properties, I have not made such moves.

“Again, I don’t have issues with his wife, I am only interested in knowing the paternity of his son because I want to know the truth”, he said.

The late singer’s father revealed that they had sent an application to the court in February but have not been responded to as no sitting has taken place.

He also said that they needed the court order to easily access the body of the deceased and also carry out a DNA test on the boy he left behind as requested by the widow, Omowunmi.

“I have not entangled myself with any of his properties, I’ve never made any move towards that. I am only keen on this DNA test because I want to know the truth.

“I also want to go to court because I still think the circumstances surrounding his death are still unknown to me despite the autopsy report, I believe it is not a natural death and I demand a private autopsy.
