Joseph Aloba, the father of Mohbad, has filed an application at the Lagos coroner court sitting in Ikorodu, seeking to call more witnesses to unravel the cause of the singer’s death.


Mohbad died under mysterious circumstances on September 12. He was buried the following day.

On September 21, the body of the 27-year-old music star was exhumed by the police for autopsy.

Aloba’s application was contained in a statement shared by Monisola Odumosu of the Hillceetee Partners, the firm representing him in court.


The law firm said their research showed that “there were incidents on the third mainland bridge at about 2.30 am on Sunday, September 10, 2023, which the witnesses did not mention and which no one has related at the coroner inquest and in our opinion would have given away the circumstantial event that led to the death of Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba”.

It also said there were events on September 12, 2023, at the deceased’s residence, which were not mentioned by the witnesses.

The application indicated that such information “would have given a better insight into the real cause” of the singer’s death.


The statement requested that “Ayobami Fisayo aka Spending, Boluwatife Adeyemo aka Darosha and Ibrahim Owodunni aka Primeboy” should testify before the court.

This, it said, was because “they were all with the deceased at the material time”.

“These key witnesses include the driver of the car that drove the deceased, his wife, his brother, and the witnesses proposed to the honourable inquest,” the statement reads.

“Furthermore, the law firm believes that the situation of the CCTV at the deceased’s residential premises not functional at the time the deceased and others came home may not be true.


“The application would also afford the inquest to make appropriate recommendations to the appropriate authority on who is culpable in the case.

“This would meet the justice of the case if the individuals proposed to be called could give their eyewitness accounts of the events that led to the death of Mohbad.”

On January 15, the singer’s management said the autopsy result of the late singer will take months before it is released.
