We have given Mohbad’s father the go head to request for the release of his son’s body but he refused, and says he wants a DNA test – Police

The Lagos State Police Command has revealed that they have informed the father of the late singer Imole to come for his corpse, but he has yet to do so.

This revelation comes after Mohbad’s mother, in a video shared online, cried out that her son’s corpse has been released to his father but he doesn’t want it to be reburied.

Recall that Mohbad passed away on September 12 and was laid to rest a day later. His death caused a major uproar on social media, with many Nigerians calling for an autopsy to be carried out to determine the cause of his death.

His corpse was eventually exhumed on September 21 for the autopsy. Though it’s been two months since the incident, the result of the autopsy has not been made public, and he is also yet to be reburied.

It was disclosed that they have notified the singer’s father, Mr Joseph, that he can come and collect his corpse, but he is yet to apply because he wants a DNA test to be conducted to determine if Mohbad is the biological father of his son, Liam.

“It was confirmed that body is in the morgue. It has not been released. It wouldn’t be released to you and you wouldn’t come and pick it. The hospital wouldn’t allow it. Only the father can apply for the release of the corpse, only the father and the police has said any day he applies, he would get it immediately. We have told them, anytime they want it, just write an application but the father has refused to do that. Technically, it is the father that is holding back. The father has said he is not taking it yet until they do DNA and that is their personal family problem. If the man writes today, of course it will be released and he must carry the corpse. You can’t write and keep it there. For who?”
