Mohbad’s family faults petition against Primeboy

Omowunmi wife of the late Nigerian singer Ilerioluwa Aloba known as Mohbad has filed a petition against Ibrahim Owodunni, but the petition has been faulted by the late singer’s family.


Primeboy, an ally, and close friend of the late singer Mohbad had a scheduled visit to the state criminal investigation department alongside Ayobami Fisayo, aka Spending.

Since the commencement of the investigation regarding the circumstances surrounding the late singer’s death, the duo has been instructed to visit the police facility every week.

According to Benjamin Hundeyin, the state police Public Relations Officer, the Afro singer was delayed and questioned during Tuesday’s visit over the alleged defamation of character and other allegations quoted in a petition by Wunmi the late singer’s wife.

Even though the singer Prime Boy was released on Tuesday,  he returned to the SCID on Wednesday as police continued their probe of the allegations.

Nevertheless, on Wednesday, the family made a statement signed by the head of its legal team, Monisola Odumosu, which alleged that the petition bordered on scaring potential witnesses in the unfolding investigative inquiry at the Coroner’s Court.

The statement read as follows, “It has come to our notice that Wunmi Cynthia Aloba has petitioned the police alleging that Primeboy and four other persons were cyber-bullying and threats to her life and her son Liam Aloba, amongst other allegations.

“As a result, the police detained Primeboy at their Panti office in Lagos and released him on Tuesday evening at about 8.00 pm local time. The legal team was led by Emmanuel Oroko Esq. Primeboy and Spending were at Panti Police Station earlier in the morning of (12/03/2024) to fulfill part of the conditions of their administrative bail which is that they must report to the homicide section of Panti police station every week.

“We are of the strong opinion that the police can only help to get justice in the matter relating to who killed Ilerioluwa Aloba (Mohbad) by vetting spurious petitions that border on scaring potential witnesses in the unfolding investigative inquiry at the Coroner’s Court. The police have shown professionalism and integrity by releasing Primeboy on bail and allowing our legal team access to the petition. Also, Primeboy was told to come back on Wednesday.”

Odumosu explained that it was not easy for the duo since they were listed as witnesses for the inquest.

“May we mention that since we listed Spending and Primeboy as witnesses for the inquest at the Coroner Court, it has not been easy for the duo. We have evidence of a sporadic call from a person sympathetic to Wunmi Aloba, and we queried why the person had to call and truncate the call when Primeboy had not picked up the call. Immediately the person switched off his phone and has not called back since then. Barely a week after, Primeboy has been petitioned against and detained.

“The petitions against the duo of Spending and Primeboy will not scare them away as witnesses at the next sitting of the Coroner Court. We shall do all within the law not just to protect them but also protect their mental health,” the statement added.

The police declared Primeboy wanted on October 4, 2023, after which he turned himself in two days later.

Remember that the singer Mohbad died on the 12th of September 2023, at the age of 27, with circumstances surrounding his death sparking controversies on social media.

During that period, Mohbad’s father, Joseph Aloba, applied in January 2024 at the coroner court sitting in the Ikorodu area of the state, seeking to call more witnesses in the bid to unravel the cause of his son’s death.

The witnesses who requested to testify before the court include Primeboy, Spending, and Boluwatife Adeyemo aka Darosha; of which all were alleged to have been with the deceased at the material time.

Back to the case, Wunmi’s lawyer, Taiwo Olawanle, refused to speak on the matter.
with a statement, “The matter is pending before a coroner inquest which is a court, we don’t want to comment on it.
