How Mohbad Landed In NDLEA’s Office, Took Water, And Became Ill – Deceased Mother
The mother of the late singer, Ilerioluwa Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad, on Wednesday explained to the Coroner’s Inquest looking into the cause of her son’s death that his son wasn’t arrested but visited the Nigerian Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) office after he heard that Niara Marley’s house was invaded by the agency.
According to Abosede, Mohbad followed NDLEA operatives to their office demanding why his friends were arrested, in the process, he got thirsty, was offered water, and became ill.
In her words, “The deceased followed the NDLEA to their office and he asked why they took his friends away he became thirsty due to the argument between him and the NDLEA, then he was given water, he later discovered that he was not feeling ok again after drinking the water.”
The witness also stated that it was the information that the deceased heard that made him rush down to Naira Marley’s house because Zinoleesky, the deceased’s younger brother, Adutra Aloba, and the deceased’s wife, Omowunmi Aloba, were staying at Naira Marley’s house.
She also explained that by the time the deceased got to Naira Marley’s house, the NDLEA had taken Zinolesky and others away.
IleriOluwa’s mother also said when she realized his song is into music, she told the deceased that wasn’t the prophecy she got while she’s pregnant with Mohbad.
She said, “when he told me that he sang, I told him that wasn’t the prophecy I got when I was pregnant with him. You were supposed to be a pastor, I told him but he played with me and then left.”
“After he left that night, somebody came to me and showed me a video that was circulating online that they were beating him and he was crying and said that Naira Marley wanted to kill him.
‘The following day, I got a call again that the deceased had been hospitalized. By the time I got there, they said he had been discharged and he was okay healthwise.
“Mohbad told me on the third day that he was inside the studio when he got a call that something was happening at Azeez Fashola (Naira Marley) house that the NDLEA came to raid his house,” she said.
“I asked him why he was shouting on the Internet, he said Naira Marley wanted to kill him. I asked him why does Naira Marley wanted to kill you, he said I shouldn’t worry, that I cannot understand.
“I and one Iya Lode went to Naira Marley’s house and on seeing Naira Marley, he explained that the deceased spoiled his name. I and his father apologized to him, but he still wrote a statement that he (Naira Marley) wanted to kill him.
“I was at the deceased’s house on Saturday when the deceased told me that he had a show on Sunday, September 10, 2023, at Ikorodu but the following Tuesday I received a call that the deceased was dead,” she added.
At the conclusion of her testimony, she said that for all the things she told the court, her son had warned her not to say it because they would kill her.
