Human Rights Activist Urges Travel Restrictions on Late Mohbad’s Wife and Child Amidst Investigation

A human rights activist, Akinola Adelabu-Soul, has called for travel restrictions on Omowunmi, the wife of late singer Ilerioluwa Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad, and their son, Liam, pending the completion of an ongoing investigation into Mohbad’s death.

In a letter addressed to 13 consulates in Nigeria, Adelabu-Soul highlighted the sensitivity surrounding Mohbad’s demise and urged the embassies to prevent Omowunmi and Liam from leaving the country until the investigation concludes. The letter emphasized the need for transparency and accountability during this critical period.

While expressing concern over the circumstances of Mohbad’s death, Adelabu-Soul stressed the importance of Wunmi and Liam’s presence in Nigeria for the investigation. He urged the Nigerian Immigration Service and the Lagos State Police Command to monitor their travel activities and ensure their cooperation.

In response, Wunmi’s lawyer, Taiwo Olawanle, asserted that Adelabu-Soul lacked the authority to make such requests and affirmed Wunmi’s intention to remain in Nigeria for her husband’s burial and the investigation.

Mohbad’s death, which occurred on September 12, 2023, at the age of 27, has stirred controversies, leading to arrests and an ongoing investigation by the state Police Command.
