The father of late singer Ilerioluwa Aloba, popularly known as MohBad, has been accused of being behind the reason his child is yet to be buried.
The late singer’s mother, Mrs Olumiyi who made the allegation insisted that the police had released the body but awaiting the family to come take it for burial.
She said this on Tuesday in a viral video, calling on Nigerians to appeal to the father to collect the remains of the singer from Lagos State Police Command.
According to her, Mohbad’s corpse has been released since the completion of the autopsy by the pathologist assigned by the police.
She said, “Nigerians, I cry to you to help demand the release of my son’s corpse. I pray that you will not witness your children’s death too.
“Mohbad’s corpse has been released since the completion of the autopsy but his father has refused to let his corpse be released for burial despite me begging him repeatedly.
“I went to the Lagos State Commissioner of Police last week, and he told me that Mohbad’s remains had been released before now questioning why we are letting his body waste away and if we are happy that he’s dead,” she added.
She further appealed to President Bola Tinubu, youths home and abroad, and friends of the former Marlian Music signee to come to her aid as the matter was becoming unbearable for her, adding that Mohbad’s body had been wandering around since he had been exhumed and that she had no peace too.
“All of you that have gone to exhume Mohbad’s body should wake up now and insist that he be buried. It is not like I have not been willing to voice out since but I leave everything to God. All the things the father has been saying are also left to God.”
Osun Defender reports that the last singer’s father, Joseph Aloba, had insisted that nobody should collect his son’s body for burial without his authorisation.
“When this boy was alive, he was alive. When he go, he still retained my name. Nobody should go there and take his body, please,” he warned.
The singer’s father added, “If they want to do anything there, I’ll be the one to authorise them. Nobody should go and carry MohBad’s body from there.”
