Human rights lawyer, Femi Falana, has petitioned the Lagos State Police Command following alleged death threats against the late singer Mohbad’s wife and son.

DAILY POST reports that Mohbad, a former signee of the Marlian Record label, died on September 12, 2023 in a controversial manner at age 27. He was buried the following day.

Following the circumstances surrounding the singer’s death, thousands of Nigerians have demanded justice for Mohbad in nationwide protests.

On September 21, Mohbad’s body was exhumed by the police for autopsy.

The result of the autopsy is yet to be released to the public.

However, in a letter dated December 28 and addressed to Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Fayoade Adegoke, Falana & Falana Chambers said that the singer’s wife, Omowunmi and his son, Liam, are being threatened by some social media users.

Parts of the letter read, “Request for the intervention of the office of the Lagos State Commissioner on the threat to lives, cyberbullying, criminal defamation of character of Cynthia Omowunmi Aloba and Liam Aloba and conduct likely to provoke breach of public peace.

“Your office would recall that llerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba, died under questionable circumstances in September 2023.

“His remains have since been deposited at the mortuary after the completion of the autopsy on his body, which was exhumed.

“The coroner’s inquest to ascertain the circumstances surrounding his death is still ongoing at the coroner’s court.

“While his wife Mrs Cynthia Wunmi Aloba continues to mourn the death of her late husband, she has received death threats from anonymous callers and the following users of Instagram, Tiktok and Facebook
among others.”

Social media users mentioned in the petition are “Westo Adekunle Adejumo, Larry Omodia (African TV), Peckins Rules, Arifanlajogunomoagba, Bukola Jesse, Themuicpivot, Kudi Alowonle (Yeye Kudi Courtroom)”.
