Lagos Monarch, Oba Elegushi, Denies Allegations That He Fathered Late Mobad’s Son

Must read

LAGOS, Nigeria – Oba Saheed Elegushi, the Elegushi of Ikate-Elegushi in Lagos State, has firmly denied fathering the son of the late singer Ilerioluwa Aloba, known as Mohbad, following controversial claims circulating on social media.

The denial comes in response to allegations made by a TikTok user, Oloriebimusicproduction2, who suggested that the monarch might be involved in the singer’s untimely death and accused him of using his influence to obstruct justice for the late singer.

These claims have gained traction on platforms such as TikTok, where other users including PEKINS RULES, WESTO4LIVE, Auto Success Ola, Olubukola Jesse, Teni Ologo, and Tolani Ilesanmi have echoed similar sentiments.

In a statement released by the royal family’s media consultant, Deyemi Saka of Lambert and Curtis, on Friday, April 12, 2024, the allegations were described as “baseless” and a “figment of the wicked imaginations of these persons.”

“We would like to respond to a new desperate attempt at dragging His Royal Majesty, Oba Saheed Elegushi, into the needless paternity dispute over the son of Ilerioluwa Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad,” part of the statement read.

The royal family has taken legal steps to address these accusations, filing a petition against the aforementioned individuals with the Nigeria Police and other relevant security agencies to protect the monarch’s rights and reputation against what they term “cyberbullies.”

While distancing himself from the controversy, Oba Elegushi extended his condolences to Mohbad’s family and called for a thorough investigation and justice regarding the singer’s death.

“This is to inform the public that the allegation is false and a figment of the wicked imaginations of these persons,” the statement read.

“HRM Oba Saheed Ademola Elegushi, through his lawyers, has filed a petition against these persons with the Nigeria Police and other relevant security agencies in a bid to enforce his fundamental human rights and protect him from cyberbullies, while he is hopeful the Nigeria Police will collaborate with relevant international security organisations in this quest for redress.

“It must be stated emphatically that Oba Elegushi, just like many Nigerians, is saddened by the sudden demise of Mohbad, and demands a thorough investigation and a quick dispensation of justice.

“While we pray to Almighty God to grant the Alobas the immense strength to bear this painful loss, we urge people to refrain from dragging the integrity of His Royal Majesty, Oba Saheed Elegushi, and the revered traditional institution he represents into public disrepute,” the statement concluded, urging the public to respect the integrity of the royal institution.
