Darosha Losobeh, the cousin and personal assistant of the late artiste Ilerioluwa Aloba, widely known as Mohbad, has finally spoken out regarding the circulating video depicting the singer’s coffin, which suggests a possible broken neck.
Recall Intel Region reported that Mohbad was was formerly signed under Marlians Record label died on September 12th 2023 at the age of 27.
The death of Mohbad raised dust for weeks following the startling revelations that surfaced online after his death and by extension resulted in people seeking justice for Mohbad.
This led to the arrest of the late singer’s former boss Naira Marley and socialite Sam Larry.
The pair accused of bullying the deceased singer have been released. Nevertheless, Mohbad’s associate, Primeboy, and the nurse purportedly involved in administering an injection to the late singer remain in police custody as they are considered prime suspects in the case.
Responding to the accusations of a broken neck circulating among netizens on his Instagram story this Saturday, Darosha emphatically stated that he was not responsible for the late artist’s neck injury. He pleaded with those spreading such information to cease, emphasizing the negative impact it was having on his mental well-being.
He wrote, “I’m so down to the extent that I had to write this up to clear this whole damn story about me going online that I bend my love’s neck; this is the craziest and saddest thing that ever happened to me, my whole life. That I broke my brother’s neck, seriously, this hurt me so much.
“What happened about the neck was that when we got to Ikorodu, we were told there was no space to keep his body at the mortuary, and we didn’t want him buried that night, so a worker there advised the family to pay for an ambulance and a coffin where we can keep him till morning and the same ambulance would drive him down to the place of burial.
“The whole family agreed to the idea because the ambulance that took us to Ikorodu was complaining that they had to leave the same night back to the island. It was only his mum that was not present there that midnight.”
Further clarifying, the cousin of the deceased artist emphasized that his involvement was solely related to covering the expenses for the coffin and ambulance. He asserted that he was unaware of the coffin being too small to accommodate the entire body of Mohbad.
“The whole family saw his body in the ambulance before leaving for the burial ground in the morning, and no one complained about his head or anything. I didn’t go close to the ambulance because I was in shock, so I didn’t know of his neck until I saw it online, and that saddened me.
“The N1million I sent to his dad is not for him to spend because it was instructed that we should use the money in doing the burial arrangement, but unfortunately, the place we buried him is not nice to me and not secured, so I told his father to use the money to erect a fence for his safety. The whole team and family can testify to this because I have every proof, and I sent his brother the rest of the money when we arrived home.
“I was the first person that went to Panti to write a statement and called for questioning. You can go to Panti station to ask more about me, not coming online to say what you don’t know; well, I know it’s all for content, but God in heaven will judge you, tarnishing my image even with all that I am going through.
“About the salt, when my father died, a salt was placed on his chest till we arrived and I was told it was local embalming to keep him fresh till the whole family arrived, and I did the same thing because a lot of people were still coming to see him before leaving to Ikorodu that night.
“Lastly, about his properties and music catalogues, Mohbad has a lawyer that controls all of these things, and he has a contract with ONErpm, so all of these things are controlled by them, and his car is parked in front of his house at Orchid.
“I can’t drive his car because I have mine. If we really want justice, let the government work, and let’s wait for autopsy. Stop bashing his loved ones. Abi una wants us to go depressed too #justiceformohbad,” he added.
