Court to Hear Suit Seeking DNA Test For Mohbad’s Son


The family of the late Ilerioluwa Aloba, also known as Mohbad, has announced that their lawsuit demanding a Deoxyribonucleic Acid test for Liam, the singer’s son, will be heard shortly in court.

This comes as the family’s legal team announced that the Magistrates’ Court in Ikorodu, Lagos State, will rule on the case.


Monisola Odumosu, a member of the family’s legal team, signed a statement detailing the situation.

In the statement headlined ‘Aloba family requests court order for DNA test on Liam,’ acquired by our correspondent on Sunday, Odumosu stated that the essential legal gear was in place to ensure the case’s success.

He claimed that Aloba was seeking a court order requiring that the test be conducted in a recognised and accredited government or private medical facility within the state, at the applicant’s expense.

The statement read, “A date has been fixed for mention of the DNA test application requested by the family of the late ace pop singer, Mr Ilerioluwa Promise Oladimeji Aloba (also known as Mohbad), who died September 12, 2023, in an unusual circumstance. All necessary legal apparatus are (sic) in place to see to the success of the matter.

The application is at the Family Court of the Ikorodu Magistrate Court (MKD/31/FAM/2024), Joseph Aloba v Cynthia Omowunmi Aloba. The family, represented by the deceased father, is seeking an order of the court directing that a deoxyribonucleic acid test be conducted concerning the paternity of Master Liam Aloba, an alleged son of Mr Ilerioluwa Promise Oladimeji Aloba (deceased), in a recognised and accredited government or private medical facility within Lagos State, Nigeria at the expense of the applicant.”

According to Odumosu, the family also prayed the court to direct Mrs Omowunmi Aloba to present herself and Master Liam Aloba for the DNA test.

The legal team added that the application filed by the family also sought an order granting leave to the chief pathologist in charge of the remains of Mohbad presently at the Military Hospital, Yaba Lagos, to take samples of the body of the deceased to conduct a DNA test for Liam.

Meanwhile, the statement revealed that an attempt to serve the court process on Mohbad’s wife on Friday, March 8, at her Lekki home was not successful.

Mohbad died at the age of 27 under controversial circumstances with his death eliciting outrage among members of the public.
