Mohbad’s Father Disowns Lawyers Appearing In Court



Joseph Aloba, father of late singer, Ilerioluwa Aloba, aka Mohbad, has distanced himself from individuals who claimed to be his lawyers and appeared in court without his consent.

Aloba, who made this known in a statement made available to newsmen on Tuesday, said he did not authorise any legal representation aside from the legal team hired by his family.

The statement signed by a member of the legal team, Monisola Odumosu, stated that the disclaimer became necessary after someone paraded himself on social media and identified himself as a counsel acting on behalf of Mohbad’s father.

Odumosu quoted Aloba as saying that anyone or group seeking to take any action about Mohbad’s case must seek the consent and approval of his legal team.

The statement read, “Our attention has been drawn to a certain individual on the social media platform particularly TikTok parading himself to be working for a group on behalf of our client, Mr. Joseph Aloba.

“It is our client’s instruction that he has not engaged anyone, a law firm or an NGO to represent him either in court or any other place in matters relating to seeking justice on the death of his late son, Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba (Mohbad) other than his current legal team which have been properly briefed on all matters relating to procuring justice on behalf of his late son.

“Mr. Aloba said anyone or group who wants to take any action about the Mohbad matter must seek the consent and approval of his legal team whom he said have been doing the legal work diligently and to his satisfaction. Mr. Joseph Aloba has not given anyone or a group his consent to represent him.”

The statement added that the deceased’s family was not unaware of what it described as subterranean moves to scuttle the process of justice in Mohbad’s matter.

The legal team noted further that it was desirous of ensuring that spoilers were not allowed to destroy the blocks of justice being built for the case.

“Please we urge the public to ignore anyone or group that claims to be acting on behalf of Mr. Joseph”, it added.
