DNA: Court Orders Substituted Service on Mohbad’s Wife

0

Wunmi, the wife of late singer, Ilerioluwa Aloba popularly known as Mohbad can now be served notice of the pending DNA test application through substituted means, the Chief Magistrate Court sitting in Ikorodu has ruled.

A statement signed by a member of the legal team to the Aloba family, Monisola Odumosu, disclosed this on Wednesday.

Mohbad’s father, Joseph Aloba, in the application filed by the legal team to the family sought an order to serve Wunmi by posting all the originating processes and other processes in the suit on the last-known address of the respondent.

The statement revealed that the legal team led by Emmanuel Oroko had argued that the sheriff had attempted twice to serve Wunmi the court process but failed.

Odumosu stated that “If the process were served on the last-known address of the respondent by Order of the Court, it would constitute good service and she would be aware of the pending suit. The Chief Magistrate granted the order and ordered that the respondent be served by posting the court process on her last known address.

“It will be recalled that the Aloba family is contesting the paternity of baby Liam and filed an application before the Family Court wherein it sought an order of the court against Wunmi to present herself and baby Liam for a DNA test at any recognised laboratory in Lagos,” the statement read.

It added that the singer’s wife, in a viral video, said she was ready for a DNA test, noting that she had never been available for the court sheriff to serve her the originating motion.
