A prominent human rights lawyer, Femi Falana (SAN), has requested a coroner’s inquest into the death of the late Nigerian singer, Ilerioluwa Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad.

This request was contained in a letter to the Chief Coroner, High Court of Lagos State, on Monday.

The letter signed by his daughter, Folakemi Falana, described the singer’s death as “very tragic” and “mysterious”.

Sharing the letter via her Instagram account, Falana said, “Mohbad’s death stings because despite the fact that he wasn’t on my radar and I never met him or knew him personally, I heard he was trying to leave his Label.

“Some of his friends reached out to me months ago for advice especially as they knew I had helped other artists negotiate leaving their record labels.

“I told them I was happy to help and they could put us in touch but they came back to me saying they were handling it. I genuinely thought they had come to an agreement. So imagine my shock and horror finding out he was being terribly harassed and living in fear till his last day.

“After speaking to some of his friends and relatives, I’ve written to the Chief Coroner of Lagos state to conduct a coroner’s inquest. The letter was received and acknowledged today. We will continue to apply pressure till we get answers.

“I know we can’t bring him back but his loved ones deserve to know what happened to him. Mohbad certainly deserves justice.”
