Mohbad’s Team Wants His Dad To Pay N200m For Defamation On ‘Fake Will’ Claim

Late musician Mohbad’s management team has slammed his father, Joseph Aloba, with a N200 million defamation suit.

Mohbad’s dad had claimed in a recent interview that his 26-year-old son, whose real name was Ilerioluwa Promise Aloba, left behind a thumb printed will that was not signed.

But Mohbad’s management rebuffed the allegation in a statement, describing the alleged will as not existing.

In a new legal document dated January 15, 2024, circulating online, Mohbad’s father, Joseph Aloba has been told to publicly retract the statement he made in an interview with TVC on January 10, 2024.

The management demanded that Mohbad’s father retract what they called “slanderous” remarks and provide a public apology.

Furthermore, the management is requesting N200 million in damages.

The document, from a law firm, states that it represents Mohbad’s lawyer, Oluwasanmi Falade, whose “reputation as an upcoming legal practitioner had been affected by Aloba’s malicious statements.”

The document highlights Aloba’s statement from the interview where he said, “They had to carry the body home for them to do evil things. Could you believe I met a lawyer inside that compound just for them to arrange what they wanted to arrange. I was so shocked when I heard that a 26 years old has a will. They had to collaborate with the lawyer to maybe put his hand to many things that is not right. A 26 year old now thinking of having his own will… Mohbad was not the kind of person that could ever think of saying that he wanted to use hand to stamp instead of signing. Because he is dead they had to call lawyer to do their own mathematics inside.”

Going on, the document asserted that Aloba’s statement “by the ordinary meaning, direct reference, or in innuendos, conveys to the ordinary public that Mohbad’s lawyer perpetrated forgery, misrepresentation, falsification, or collaborated with certain persons to present a fake will.”

Mohbad’s father was then given three days to issue a retraction of the statements he made, across social media platforms. Additionally, he has been told to issue a public apology within 14 days.
