Court Orders Substituted Service on Mohbad’s Wife for DNA Test

Court Orders Substituted Service on Mohbad's Wife for DNA Test

The Aloba family has taken legal action to contest the paternity of baby Liam, son of the late singer Ilerioluwa Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad.

The family has filed an application before the Family Court in Lagos, requesting that Mohbad’s wife, Wunmi, and baby Liam undergo a DNA test at a recognized laboratory in the city.

However, the court faced difficulties in serving Wunmi with the necessary legal documents for the DNA test. Despite attempts by the court sheriff to serve the documents personally on two occasions, Wunmi was not reachable.

Consequently, the Magistrate Court sitting in the Ikorodu area of Lagos has ordered substituted service, allowing the court papers to be posted on Wunmi’s last-known address.

In response, Monisola Odumosu, a member of the Aloba family’s legal team, emphasized the importance of ensuring Wunmi’s awareness of the pending suit.

Odumosu highlighted that Wunmi had expressed readiness for the DNA test in a viral video, but she had not been available for personal service by the court sheriff.

Meanwhile, counsel to Wunmi, Taiwo Olawanle, stated that they were not aware of the court order but affirmed their willingness to adhere to it if received.

The matter has been adjourned until next month for the report of service.

Mohbad, aged 27, passed away in September 2023, under controversial circumstances. His death prompted the exhumation of his body for autopsy, and the Lagos State Police Command initiated a special investigation team to probe the incident.

The results of the autopsy are expected to be available within the next three to four weeks, according to Dr. Richard Somiari, Director of the Lagos State DNA and Forensic Centre, who testified before the coroner.
