Nigerian musician David Adeleke popularly known as Davido, has recently been in the media, not for music but for allegation of being involved in an alleged death of his friend musician Tagbo. Tagbo allegedly died at the Ikeja general hospital where Davido’s boys had dumped him.
Earlier, acting Commissioner of Police in the state, Mr Imohimi Edgar, told reporters at a press briefing that the result of the investigations carried out by the police contradicted Davido’s claims on the death of his friend.
Recalling how it happened, Edgar said, “On September 3, 2017, at about 0920hrs, the Chief Security Officer of General Hospital, Lagos, one Oparanti Moshood, alleged and alerted the DPO (Lion Building) that an unidentified male was brought in dead (BID) in an ash colour Toyota Camry saloon car with identification number LSD 738 El. He narrated how the incident happened;
“The victim was alleged to have been brought in by two unidentified males. The DPO Lion Building who raced to the scene was able to identify the victim as one Tagbo Umeike from the international passport found in the victim’s vehicle.
“Shortly, thereafter, you are all aware that one Caroline Danjuma, an actress and the victim’s fiancé, published on her Instagram page that her boyfriend died in the company of friends amongst whom was one David Adeleke, a.k.a Davido.”.
According to him, the meeting confirmed that the deceased had drinks with friends at a bar, including Davido while the bartender who served them the drinks “confirmed that the deceased had as much as 40 tucks of tequila and exhibited clear signs of drunkenness.”
Edgar further said, “The CCTV footage which I called for from the bar also showed that the deceased was quarrelsome and even violent. In that same meeting, Davido confirmed that he left Shisha Bar without the deceased to a nightclub known as DNA in Victoria Island; he stated that he was only informed by some mutual friends of the victim’s death at DNA club.”
“These new revelations completely debunk Davido’s claims that he did not know how the deceased got to General Hospital, Lagos. For this reason, I have instructed the DPO Lion Building and the investigating team to again invite Davido and question him in line with these new findings.
“It is our intention to know why the victim was taken to General Hospital, Lagos dumped and those who took him there fled the location without as much as notifying the hospital authorities or reporting to the police; that calls for questioning.
But today Davido has also released his own statement sign by his lawyer one Norrison Quakers on the matter, read bellow.
