I didn’t ask Primeboy to run away - Mohbad’s father

I didn’t ask Primeboy to run away -  Mohbad’s father

Ileri Oluwa Aloba, Mohbad

Joseph Aloba, father of late Nigerian artiste and song writer, Ilerioluwa Aloba, aka Mohbad, has denied plotting an escape by Owodunni Ibrahim aka Primeboy following the death of his son.

Aloba, who reacted to an interview by the deceased’s mother, Bosede Adeyemo, said he never had any encounter with Primeboy since the incident happened.

In the interview, Adeyemo claimed that her ex-husband instructed Primeboy, who is Mohbad’s childhood friend, to run away to avoid being arrested and also not to be implicated in the late singer’s death.

However, Mohbad’s father in a statement by his lawyer, Monisola Odumosu, on Friday, said the only time he ever met Primeboy was during his appearance at the coroner’s court.

The statement read in part, “Our client wishes to state that he did not and has not had any talks or discussions relating to the death of his son or any other issues with the said Primeboy since the death of his son, Ilerioluwa Aloba.

“The only time they met after the death of his son was at the coroner’s court sitting where  Primeboy and our client only exchanged pleasantries  in the presence of everyone, and there was no discussions between them.”

While faulting the claim by Adeyemo, the statement added that Mohbad’s father was after getting justice for his late son.

“Mr. Joseph Aloba will not cover anyone no matter how great or mighty the person may be. He is after justice for the untimely snuffing out of the life of his great son. He uses this opportunity to urge Primeboy to tell the Coroner Court all what he knows without shielding anyone.

“The truth will surely come out even if it takes time. Our client believes that the will of justice may be slow, it will surely grind to the truth.

“We urge the general public to disregard such spurious assertions. Rather, our client urges Ms. Adeyemo to declare what she knows about the death of Mohbad,” the statement added.

Mohbad was a signee under Marlian Records owned by Afeez Fashola, aka Naira Marley.

After his death, Marley and a popular Lagos socialite, Balogun Eletu, aka Sam Larry; were arrested and interrogated by the Lagos State Police Command to give accounts of what they knew about Mohbad’s death.

Primeboy was also declared wanted by the state police command on October 4, 2023, after which he turned himself in two days later.

On March 12, Primeboy visited the State Criminal Investigation Department, Panti, with one Ayobami Fisayo, aka Spending,

Part of the bail conditions granted him during Mohbad’s case was that “he would come to the State CID every Tuesday to sign just to keep an eye on him so that he wouldn’t run away,” according to the state Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin.
