Mohbad: Court to hear suit seeking DNA test for son


CITIZENS COMPASS —The Magistrates’ Court sitting in Ikorodu, Lagos State, is set to hear a suit seeking a Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA) test for Liam, the son of the late Nigerian singer, Ilerioluwa Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad.

A member of the family’s legal team, Monisola Odumosu, disclosed this in a statement titled ‘Aloba family seeks court order for DNA test on Liam,’ on Sunday, March 10, 2024. 

However, it noted that all attempts to serve Mohbad’s widow, Wunmi, on Friday, March 8, at her Lekki home were unsuccessful.

The statement reads, “A date has been fixed for mention of the DNA test application requested by the family of the late ace pop singer, Mr Ilerioluwa Promise Oladimeji Aloba (also known as Mohbad), who died September 12, 2023, in an unusual circumstance. All necessary legal apparatus are (sic) in place to see to the success of the matter.

“The application is at the Family Court of the Ikorodu Magistrates Court (MKD/31/FAM/2024), Joseph Aloba vs Cynthia Omowunmi Aloba. The family, represented by the deceased father, is seeking an order of the court directing that a deoxyribonucleic acid test be conducted concerning the paternity of Master Liam Aloba, an alleged son of Mr Ilerioluwa Promise Oladimeji Aloba (deceased), in a recognised and accredited government or private medical facility within Lagos State, Nigeria, at the expense of the applicant.”

“According to the process server, those from whom enquiries were made to serve the process on her said she had not been seen in the house recently. The legal team has said they will look at an alternative method to ensure that all the court processes are legally served on her. “

Recall that the deceased singer’s father, Joseph Aloba, disclosed that he had filed a suit seeking a DNA test for his grandson, Liam.

Citizens Compass reports that Mohbad died on Tuesday, September 12, 2024 in the Ajah area of Lagos State and was buried the following day in Gberigbe, Ikorodu but due to controversies surrounding his death, the Police exhumed the body to ascertain the cause of his death but the result is yet to be made public. 

Joseph, Wunmi and Mohbad’s mother, Bose had been engaging themselves in accusations and counter-accusations over the paternity of Liam.
