Omowunmi Aloba, the widow of late 27-year-old singer IleriOluwa Aloba also known as Mohbad, has revealed that she’s been receiving death threats.
She made this known while testifying before the Coroner’s Inquest sitting at Ikorodu area of Lagos on Tuesday, November 7.
Omowunmi said that the threats have forced her to resort to wearing face mask whenever she is going out.
The mother-of-one also testified that Mohbad died in his room on Tuesday, September 12, 2023, in the afternoon, long before he was declared dead due to past incidents of bullying, psychological trauma, and the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency arrest.
She said before the singer’s death, he had showered and wasn’t feeling okay, so he asked that they switch on the air conditioner in his room, but the AC wasn’t working, so they rushed him to the son’s room.
Omowunmi stated that she was in the kitchen while this was happening, adding that when she came out, she saw the nurse injecting him, and she heard Mohbad telling the nurse to remove the syringe.
She further told the coroner that it was at that point that they had to rush him to the hospital. She said he was in the back seat of the car when the driver said his hands were already cold.
“Immediately I called a bike (motorcycle), OG, his friend, and Mohbad entered the bike, then I took another bike and went straight to the hospital.
“It was the doctor, nurses, the Disc Jokey, and Mohbad ‘s brother that were inside the room while I was outside, when they told me that he was dead, I said it was not possible because I still spoke to him 20 minutes ago and he said after his injection, he would take his son for five months photo shoot,” she said.
Speaking on the fight that broke out in the car, she stated that Mohbad had an argument with his younger brother inside the car when Mohbad’s friend, Owodunni Ibrahim, also known as Prime Boy, said his younger brother couldn’t be the one who would disrespect him.
Omowunmi added, “Prime Boy said he knew what he would have done, but Mohbad told Prime Boy that it was because they were outside and that if they were at home, he would have fought his brother.
“Prime Boy and Mohbad started fighting and I went to get his workers to come and separate them and by the time I came back, I met that people had separated them already.
“During the fight, Mohbad sustained a minor injury at his elbow when he hit the window of the car. The nurse who injected Mohbad has been treating him for two years.
“The nurse injected Mohbad on his shoulder. After the February 22, 2022, NDLEA incident, Mohbad became fearful and refused to go to the hospital because his head was hit with a gun, by NDLEA.
“I was beaten and pushed inside the gutter because I confronted and questioned the NDLEA why they harassed my husband. He was given substance by the NDLEA ever since then he has not been himself.”
