The Chief Executive Officer of African Television, Larry Omodia, has promised to raise N10 million for Liam, the son of Ilerioluwa Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad, if a DNA proves that he is truly his son.
The television station owner threw the challenge in a video in which he also promised to foot the bill of the DNA.
In the video, Omodia said if Mohbad’s baby mama, Omowunmi, accepts to have a DNA conducted on Liam, it will end the controversy over the paternity of the five-month-old.
The Eagle Online recalls that there has been controversy over the paternity of the boy.
Some social media users have insinuated that Liam looks more like one of those allegedly accused of being behind the death of Mohbad, Samson Erinfolami Balogun, also known as Sam Larry.
The accusation had been that Sam Larry and street singer, Azeez Fashola, popularly known as Naira Marley, had over the years been threatening Mohbad, equally known as Imole.
The accusation was first raised by the Very Dark Man, who requested for DNA on Liam.
Responding to the Very Dark Man, Omowunmi’s sister threatened him with a N300 million defamation lawsuit.
Omodia in the video that went viral on Monday said: “N10 million to Mohbad’s wife if DNA proves that that child belongs to Mohbad.
“African Television will pay for the DNA test, raise N10 million for Mohbad’s wife to raise that child if the DNA proves that that child is actually Mohbad’s child.
“This is to counter those people who say: ‘If you talk about DNA, they will sue you for N3 million.’
“Let them come after me.
“My name is Larry Omodia.
“I’m the CEO of African Television.
“I’m going to sponsor the DNA test and make sure that the baby gets N10 million if he’s proven to be Mohbad’s child.
“Because the accusation is traumatic.
“But what is more traumatic than accusation?
“A life of lies.
“So we would compensate Mohbad’s wife if the baby actually belongs to Mohbad.
“But if that baby isn’t for Mohbad, men will learn a lot of lessons from that.
“So, this message is to Mohbad’s family, get me that woman, get the baby, we’ll do a DNA test.
“If the woman has nothing to hide, she walks away with N10 million.
“That is a promise.
“And if you want to sue people for what is right, come after me.
“We are tired of women sending our boys to jail, killing our boys, lying against our men.
“Do you know how many men are in their graves because of a woman?
“Kings have been buried by women.
“Future presidents have been put in jail by women.
“It is time that we said: ‘No to slutty women.’
“And I’m not saying Mohbad’s wife or girlfriend is bad, but we want to clear her name.
“We want to clear her name if she’s innocent.
“Listen to the audio conversation between her and Mohbad.
“That audio conversation makes her the first suspect.
“You guys are going after Naira Marley, Sam Larry, all kinds of people, but listen to that audio conversation.
“Yes, what happened between Naira Marley, Sam Larry, they’re all criminals.
“Those actions were wrong.

“But in the case of murder, the primary suspect in my opinion is the wife because the audio conversation, from Mohbad’s conversation with her makes her a prime suspect.
“And the only way we can clear her name is by proper investigation.
“So, we’re offering N10 million for her to clear her name in this case.”
