According to the singer’s pastor father, in Yoruba land, such a corpse cannot be kept for long because he died young. He also stated that assuming Mohbad died at an older age, he might have considered leaving his corpse in the mortuary for a longer period.
In his words:
“In Yoruba land, his corpse is not the kind to be kept when both of his parents are still alive. Assuming he died at an older age, we might have considered putting his body in the mortuary and taking it at a later date. That same night we took him away from there and buried him where we did.”
Mr Aloba also addressed the complaints about the location Mohbad was buried in. A number of the late singer’s fans felt it was not a befitting place for the late singer to be laid to rest.
According to Mohbad’s dad, where his son was buried was the only land he knew that belonged to the singer. He explained that even though his son had given him the land to build his church, he decided to bury him there since he doesn’t know of him owning any other land.
“That land where Mohbad was buried is his only land, that’s the only land I know him to have owned. Truly he gave me the land to build my church because we had both agreed to build the church there, and since that’s the only land I knew him to have…”
