Following the tragic death of Ileriouluwa Oladimeji Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad, the late singer's aunt has spoken out to criticize his widow. Since news of his death broke, many have accused his widow of being involved in his death.
Mohbad's mother's sister joined the accusers and appeared in a viral video questioning the presence of blood-soaked clothing at the time of the singer's death. During her visit to their home, she was surprised by these clothes and expressed her strong disapproval.
She further claimed that if Omowunmi played a role in Mohbad's death, she would not escape punishment as she placed severe curses on her. In her words,
“Wunmi, are you telling me that Mohbad's father is lying about you? When I arrived at your house after MohBad died, I saw numerous clothes soaked in blood.
I was so surprised that I had to ask my sister: why is there so much blood on these clothes? No one has accused you of anything. If you know anything about Mohbad's death, you cannot escape justice.
God will use the blood relationship between me and Mohbad to hold you accountable. I have a lot to say, but I'm holding back. You will not escape it.”

Naijalegit earlier reported that the House of Representatives has issued a summons to singer Azeez Fashola, commonly known as Naira Marley, and Mohbad's manager. The step was taken as part of their efforts to address concerns related to the work of late singer Ilerioluwa Aloba, also known as Mohbad, and ensure the protection of his rights.
The House, through its Committee on Justice, Youth and Law, has also extended an invitation to Jiggy Adeoye, who serves as Mohbad's manager. This invitation was for an interactive session scheduled for October 3, as a proactive step toward securing fair compensation and royalties for the late music sensation.
Mohbad, a former recording artist for Naira Marley's record label, tragically passed away on September 12 under unclear circumstances at the age of 27.
The House's decision to intervene in the matter was prompted by a motion by Rep. Babajimi Benson (APC-Lagos). Benson emphasized the need to review laws regarding the entertainment industry and copyright law, and expressed concern about the contracts and agreements that artists were often pressured to sign.
Debating this issue during the plenary session on September 26, lawmakers reiterated their commitment to ensuring just compensation and royalties for Mohbad's musical works. They also vowed to keep a close eye on the ongoing investigation into his death and the royalties due to him.
In a letter dated October 26 and signed by the Committee's Clerk, Mr Yusuf Ibrahim, the House officially summoned both Naira Marley and Mohbad's manager. This subpoena was issued to understand the situation and guide the committee on possible legislative action. The letter was conveyed through the Chairman of the Performing Musicians Association of Nigeria, as reported by NAN.
