Female activist Omowonuola Oyebode took to social media to emphasize that only Wunmi, the wife of the late singer Ilerioluwa Aloba, aka Mohbad, has the authority to sign for her husband’s body.
This comes after warnings from Joseph Aloba, the father of the late singer, who insisted that nobody should proceed with the burial arrangements without his authorization.
Taking to social media, Omowonuola Oyebode made a bold assertion, stating, “Mohbad’s body is not your property; only Wunmi can sign for her husband’s body.”
She wrote,”I found it very appalling and so disrespectful. Shouting people should not touch Mohbad’s body. Hey, Old man takes several seats, okay. If we were to leave him to you, you buried him in a small coffin with his head bent sideways.
You ingrates good-for-nothing father fighting for your son’s property when you should be happy he even had a child before he passed away.
What an irriating, poverty and lack of education have dealt with your generation. You disgust me with your utterances. Mohbad’s body is not your property, Lagos State owns the body now, if you don’t know, and only Wunmi can sign for her husband’s body. You have no right at all. You are an embarrassment to manhood.🤮God forbid Mohbad come back to this life to you as child gosh 🤮Iku doro smh.”
In response to the activist’s post, Nollywood actress Iyabo Ojo reposted Omowonuola Oyebode’s message on her Instagram stories. Iyabo Ojo, who has been actively advocating for justice in Mohbad’s case, seems to endorse the sentiment that the authority over the late singer’s body rests with his wife.

Timeofgist reported earlier that Joseph Aloba, the father of the late singer, Ilerioluwa Aloba, aka MohBad, has stated that nobody should collect his son body for burial without his authorization.
The made this known in a video that has gone viral online.
Recall Mohbad passed away under controversial circumstances on September 12, 2023, and was laid to rest the following day before being exhumed for autopsy a week later. His body was subsequently deposited in the morgue by the police after the autopsy.
Following calls from singer Bella Shmurda and actress Tonto Dikeh urging the Police to release Mohbad’s body for a “befitting burial” due to delays in the autopsy result, Mohbad’s father emphasized his authority over his son’s final rites.
In his words,” I heard some people want to go and carry Mohbad’s body. When this boy was alive, he was my son and even after dea*h, he is still my son. Nobody should go and take his body.
If anything must be done, I will be the one to authorize it. We are seeking for Justice for Mohbad and you people are talking of burial. What remains after burial? Let Justice take place first and The DNA is very necessary please.”
