In a solemn session of the coroner inquest held in Ikorodu, DJ Ajisegiri Ayobami, the disc jockey who accompanied the late singer Ilerioluwa Aloba, widely known as MohBad, before his untimely demise, recounted a series of distressing events leading to the artist’s tragic end.
Ayobami’s testimony, delivered on Wednesday, shed light on the circumstances surrounding MohBad’s death.
According to Ayobami’s account, the deceased singer had started vomiting following an injection administered by a nurse.
He disclosed that MohBad had even expelled the noodles prepared by his brother, Adura Aloba, during this unfortunate episode.
The witness further detailed the events of the previous day, when they had attended a show in Ikorodu.
On their way back, their Prado Jeep was obstructed, and he witnessed MohBad disembark from his vehicle to confront his friend, Primeboy, leading to an altercation in which the late artist sustained an injury.
Ayobami clarified that the wound seemed minor, just a small cut on MohBad’s hand. However, upon their return home around midnight, they noticed that the hand had become swollen.
Concerned for his friend’s well-being, they attempted to reach MohBad’s personal nurse, but she was unavailable.
In response, one of their team members contacted someone known as Spending, who claimed to have access to a nurse. This nurse was subsequently summoned to provide an injection.
Ayobami recounted that MohBad had been in good health prior to the nurse’s arrival but had fallen asleep before receiving the injection.
During this period, he mentioned observing water on the floor in MohBad’s room and went to fetch a mop to clean it. It was at this point that Ayobami’s wife urgently called him from upstairs.
Upon returning to the room, Ayobami discovered MohBad collapsed on the floor, having regurgitated the Indomie noodles he had consumed earlier. The late singer’s body exhibited goosebumps.
Ayobami stated, “The nurse said we should go and get him drugs. While we were at the pharmacy, I called the house to know how he was feeling, and they said I should come back.
When I got back, they were already outside trying to put him in a neighbor’s car to get him to the hospital, but the way I saw him, he was lifeless, his eyes were closed, and his hands were falling.”
Amidst challenging traffic conditions en route to the hospital, Ayobami separated from the group to expedite their arrival.
He inquired about the availability of an ambulance at the hospital but was informed there was none. MohBad’s lifeless body was later brought to the hospital on a motorcycle, and upon their arrival, he was officially pronounced deceased.
