The Baale of Gberigbe community in Ikorodu, Lagos State, Oba Kabiru Shotobi has revealed that he was the one that prevented James Aloba, the father of late singer, Ilerioluwa Olademeji Aloba, aka Mohbad from burying his corpse at midnight.
Ngnews247 recalls that Mohbad died in a controversial manner on September 12, 2023, and was buried the following day in Ikorodu.
The sudden burial sparked outrage both online and offline, with many berating his family for burying the singer before an autopsy could be carried out.
However, speaking in a video trending on the internet, the Baale of Gberigbe, Oba Shotobi said Mohbad could have been buried earlier if not for his intervention.
He said the deceased’s father wanted to bury him at midnight but he kicked against it.
Speaking in Yoruba, Oba Shotobi said, “Mohbad’s father wanted to bury Mohbad in the midnight of the same day he died. I was the one that stopped him.”
