Mohbad’s Father Files Suit to Seek DNA Paternity Test for Late Singer’s Son, Liam

According to him, the suit was filed at the Magistrates’ Court in Ikorodu, Lagos State.

Joseph Aloba, father of the late singer, Ilerioluwa Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad, says his lawyers have filed a suit seeking a Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA) test for his grandson, Liam.

According to him, the suit was filed at the Magistrates’ Court in Ikorodu, Lagos State.

Aloba has also asked the Nigeria Police Force to summon the late son’s widow, Omomunmi, to explain everything she knows relating to the death of her husband.

Omomunmi, popularly known as Wunmi recently said that she knew of how her late husband was bullied before his death, but that she was helpless as the bullies in the music industry would not let her talk.

Mohbad’s father recently filed a suit seeking to call more witnesses in the bid to establish the cause of the death of Mohbad.

Aloba in the application signed by his legal representatives identified Ayobami Fisayo, aka Spending; Boluwatife Adeyemo, aka Darosha and Ibrahim Owodunni, aka Prime Boy as witnesses requested to testify in court.

According to Aloba, Omowunmi’s testimony could also be integral to the case.

Part of the statement reads: “It has come to our attention that Omomunmi Adebanjo, the wife of the late Mohbad, has expressed her knowledge of critical information related to his death. We urge the relevant authorities to extend an invitation to Omowunmi Adebanjo to provide her testimony and insights into this tragic event.

“We believe that her cooperation and testimony could be instrumental in shedding light on the circumstances leading to Mohbad’s demise. We implore you (the police) to prioritise this investigation and take swift action to uncover the truth behind Mohbad’s death.

“The Aloba family and the public deserve closure, and justice must prevail.”

Aloba said that it was his duty as the grandfather of Liam, Mohbad’s son to bring closure to the controversy over his paternity.

He said, “As a grandfather to Liam Aloba, I owe the duty of protecting him now, and the future is at stake if the issue of paternity is not resolved now, and it will hurt her and the son in the future. Anyone can call him any bad name which I will not want that to happen to him now or in the nearest future.

“Wunmi Adebanjo, as a mother to Liam Aloba too, it is my thinking and belief that you will not like a situation where, in the future, people will use or call Liam Aloba any unpleasant name.

“Since she wants a court order to do the DNA, my legal team has approached the court in that regard, the suit has been filed. Her legal team should do the needful whenever the court serves them by not frustrating the process so that Liam Aloba, whether he is my grandson or not, deserves the right to a good life without any blemish to his name and his existence on earth.

“If this is the only thing you can do to save him from future embarrassment, please do it for him as a mother; let him have a peaceful life to live.”

Speaking about the paternity of her son, recently, Mohbad’s wife said, “The DNA issue has brought tears to my eyes and pain to my heart. There has never been any doubt or discussion about Liam’s paternity until my husband’s demise.”
