The Elegushi of Ikate-Elegushi in Lagos State, Oba Saheed Elegushi, on Thursday said that the royal family has no form of connection with the son of the late singer, Ilerioluwa Aloba, aka Mohbad.

The rebuttal is coming after a TikToker, Oloriebimusicproduction2, made several posts on his TikTok page, alleging that Elegushi might have something to do with the death of the late singer.

It was also alleged that the monarch was leveraging on his influence to obstruct justice for Mohbad.

But the royal family in a statement by its media consultant, Deyemi Saka, lead partner at Lambert and Curtis, refuted the raging paternity dispute.

It described the allegations as baseless.

Part of the statement reads, “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.

“The widely syndicated falsehood was promoted by some persons with the underlisted profile on the social media app TikTok, namely: Oloriebimusicproduction2, PEKINS RULES, and WESTO4LIVE. Also, the same falsehood is being promoted by Auto Success Ola, Olubukola Jesse, Teni Ologo, and Tolani Ilesanmi.

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

“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.”

The monarch, while extending condolences to the family of the late singer, implored members of the general public not to drag the traditional institution in the paternity dispute.

“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”.
