A number of allegations have trailed the 27-year-old musician’s murder, resulting into police extensive investigations and protests across three states by youths who were demanding justice for his death.

The Baale of Ikorodu, who is also the Chairman of the Lagos Landlords Association, has narrated how Joseph Aloba, the father of late fast-rising musician Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba nicknamed Mohbad, attempted to bury him at midnight of the same day he died.

A number of allegations have trailed the 27-year-old musician’s murder, resulting into police extensive investigations and protests across three states by youths who were demanding justice for his death.

Mohbad died last Tuesday after apparently receiving injections for an ear infection and was buried the next day in Ikorodu, Lagos.

Many people were surprised by the sudden burial because the singer was not a Muslim.

According to a widely circulated video, the chief was initially contacted by Mohbad’s father to inform him that the body would be brought for burial at midnight, but he refused, stating that the late songwriter could not be laid to rest at midnight on the same day of his death.

The Baale, who spoke Yoruba, answered to queries posed by a lady in the background.

“They wanted to bring him at midnight. His father called and informed me that they were coming with his remains for burial, I told him that the late singer could not be buried in the midnight of that same day he died,” he said.

Since the singer’s passing, tributes from colleagues and admirers have continued to flow in via social media sites.
