Police must unravel untimely death of Mohbad — Oba Elegushi

His Royal Majesty, Oba Saheed Elegushi, Kunsela III, the traditional ruler of Ikate-Elegushi Kingdom in Lagos, has called upon the Police to uncover the circumstances surrounding the tragic death of Ilerioluwa Aloba, also known as ‘Mohbad.’

He made this known through his lawyer, Adepeju Omotayo, at the continuation of trial of two suspects, James Adeshola and Awiye Azeez, on the claims of unwarranted cyber bullying and defamation he suffered in their hands because of the death of Mohbad.

Omotayo further stated: “The traditional ruler is passionate in his position on this matter as he has continued to admonish all those seeking justice to do so responsibly and in accordance with the law. She stated in strong terms that Kabiesi will not allow anyone, no matter his or her status or position in the society tarnish his good name and reputation for whatever gain.”

She also restated that Oba Elegushi never met or interacted with late Aloba, his wife or any member of his family and hoped this put an end to the needless buffoonery of dragging him into the matter.

“Kabiesi said his desire as a father and a leader was to see the unraveling of the circumstances leading to the death of Mohbad, and this he did emphatically to Mr. Josiah Aloba, Mohbad’s dad, when they met at the Zone 2 Headquarters of the Nigeria Police Onikan, when Mr. Aloba was invited for questioning over unfounded statements and allegations against Kabiesi.”

It was also reported that Oba Elegushi demonstrated magnanimity at the said meeting by intervening and ensuring the Police did not detain Mr. Aloba as his interest was to see late Mohbad and his family get justice and not to oppress.

The trail of the two accused persons will resume on July 5, 2024, at a Federal High Court in Ikoyi, Lagos.
