Darosha Losobeh, a cousin and personal assistant to the late singer, Oladimeji Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad, has refuted accusations of breaking the deceased’s neck.
A circulating video suggested that Losobeh broke Mohbad’s neck to fit him into the casket used for his burial.
Mohbad allegedly died of ear infection on September 12, 2023, at 27, and his death has since sparked controversy, with many Nigerians calling for justice for his sudden demise, leading to the arrest of his former boss, Azeez Fashola, aka Naira Marley and Samson Balogun aka Sam Larry.
The duo who were allegedly arrested for bullying the late singer had been released.
Subsequently, a nurse who attended to him and his childhood friend, Primeboy, were identified as primary suspects in his demise.
Responding to the allegations regarding the neck, Darosha denied the claims.
In a post via his Instagram story, he expressed distress over the impact of these accusations on his mental well-being.
He wrote: “I’m so down to the extent that I had to write this to clear this whole story about me going online that I bent my love’s neck; this is the craziest and saddest thing that ever happened to me in my whole life. That I broke my brother’s neck, seriously, this hurt me so much.
“What happened about the neck was that when we got to Ikorodu, we were told there was no space to keep his body at the mortuary and we didn’t want him buried that night. So, a worker there advised the family to pay for an ambulance and a coffin where we can keep him until morning, and the same ambulance would drive him down to the place of burial.
“The whole family agreed to the idea because the ambulance that took us to Ikorodu was complaining that they had to leave the same night back to the island. It was only his mum that was not present there that midnight.
“The N1million I sent to his dad is not for him to spend because it was instructed that we should use the money in doing the burial arrangement, but unfortunately, the place we buried him is not nice to me and not secure, so I told his father to use the money to erect a fence for his safety. The whole team and family can testify to this because I have every proof, and I sent his brother the rest of the money when we arrived home.
“I was the first person that went to Panti to write a statement and called for questioning. You can go to Panti station to ask more about me, not coming online to say what you don’t know; well, I know it’s all for content, but God in heaven will judge you, tarnishing my image even with all that I am going through.
“About the salt, when my father died, a salt was placed on his chest till we arrived and I was told it was local embalming to keep him fresh till the whole family arrived, and I did the same thing because a lot of people were still coming to see him before leaving to Ikorodu that night.
“Lastly, about his properties and music catalogs, Mohbad has a lawyer that controls all of these things, and he has a contract with ONErpm, so all of these things are controlled by them, and his car is parked in front of his house at Orchid.
“I can’t drive his car because I have mine. If we really want justice, let the government work, and let’s wait for an autopsy. Stop bashing his loved ones. Abi una wants us to go depressed too #justiceformohbad.”
