According to Pastor Tunde Bakare, the General Overseer of the Citadel Global Community Church, the popular late musician Ilerioluwa Aloba, well known as Mohbad, pitched his tent among evil people throughout his lifetime.
The pastor claimed that Mohbad was too busy “drinking and smoking” and “reaped the reward of his unpleasant lifestyle while alive” to realise that his time on earth would be short.
On Sunday, Bakare made these remarks during the church’s second anniversary, The Envoy Nation, which is situated in the United Kingdom.
The Nigerian music industry was thrown into mourning when Mohbad died on September 12.
He was buried the next day in the Ikorodu area of Lagos, but the circumstance surrounding his death has continued to generate controversies on social media.
Speaking about him, Bakare raised questions on the life Mohbad lived, asking rhetorically, “Is Mohbad a good name?”
“My wife and I listened to a tape last night on MohBad. How many of you know Mohbad? The Nigerian artiste who died at 27? Mohbad,” Bakare asked.
“When he was drinking and smoking and associating with evil men, he did not know that the harvest would come so soon and that he would soon be cut down at the prime of youth.
“I am not blaming him, I am just telling you. Is Mohbad a good name? Mohbad.”
The Lagos State Police Command has exhumed Mohbad’s corpse and conducted an autopsy on him to investigate the cause of his demise.
ast week, thousands of protesters in Lagos, Delta, Ogun and some other parts of the country demanded justice for the late singer.
In Lagos, a candlelight procession was held for him in Lekki and Muri Okunola, the highbrow areas of the state.
