Mr. Joseph Aloba, the father of the late singer Ilerioluwa Aloba, who is also known as Mohbad, provided testimony during a coroner’s court session on Wednesday. He revealed that his son had been residing with the singer Azeez Fashola, popularly known as Naira Marley, since December 2019.

Joseph appeared as a witness in the coroner’s inquest initiated to investigate the circumstances of his son’s death. Mohbad, the musician, passed away on September 12 and was laid to rest the following day at the age of 27, sparking controversy surrounding his demise. In response to the public concern, the Lagos State Government ordered the coroner’s inquest, which commenced on October 13 and is being conducted at the Ikorodu Magistrate’s Court in Lagos State.

During his testimony, Joseph informed the coroner, Magistrate Adedayo Shotobi, that he had lived with his son for 18 years but did not possess exact information regarding the location of his late son’s residence with Marley. He explained that his son moved out of their home when he reached the age of consent and began assisting Marley while pursuing his own music career.

Joseph also disclosed that he had seen his son three days prior to his demise and had only seen a photograph of his casket. According to Joseph, his son had assured him that he would resolve his disagreements with Marley. He further mentioned that his late son’s landed property was under the control of his mother-in-law, and he had often discussed with him about assets held by his wife and her family. Joseph alleged that when they lived together, Mohbad’s wife had put sleeping pills in his food.
