"Tagbo Died From Suffocation"- Davido Lied To Police.
This matter is developing twist. Tagbo Umeike, a friend of singer Davido and lover of Nollywood actress Caroline Danjuma, died from suffocation, the Lagos state police command has said.
Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi, made this known at a briefing in Lagos today.
Consequently, CP Imohimi said Davido has been re-invited for questioning.
The police boss said the singer did not give an accurate response when asked of the time he became aware of Tagbo’s death.
The Commissioner of Police said Davido lied that he found out about his friend’s death while he was at DNA, a nightclub in Victoria Island.
CP Edgal said Tagbo was abandoned in his car at the hospital by Davido’s driver and two of his friends.
He said: “On October 3, at about 9:20am, the Chief Security Officer (CSO) of General Hospital Lagos, Oparanti Moshood, alerted the DPO Lion Building that an unidentified male was brought in dead (BID) in an Ash Toyota Camry Saloon car marked LSD378EL by two unidentified males.
“From the international passport found in the deceased’s car, the DPO gave his identity as Tagbo Umeike. Immediately after, one Caroline Danjuma, an actress and the victim’s fiancee, published on her Instagram page that her boyfriend died in the company of one David Adeleke, alias Davido and friends.
“To be objective and verify facts, I called for a pre-investigation meeting in my conference room. In attendance were all parties including family, friends of the deceased; those of Davido; Caroline Danjuma; the DPO and investigating officers.
“The meeting confirmed that the deceased Tagbo Umeike on that day met and had drinks with friends at Shisha Bar amongst whom was Davido. The bar tender confirmed the deceased had as much as 40 tots of Tequila and exhibited signs of drunkenness.
“Davido had told the police he had left Shisha Bar for DNA Night Club in Victoria Island without the deceased and was only informed by mutual friends of his death while he was at DNA.
“However, investigation revealed that Davido’s white Toyota Hilux escort driver, Tunde Usutu, accompanied by one Agbeje Olaoye and one Idris Busari, both Davido’s friends, took the deceased to the General Hospital Lagos and abandoned him in his vehicle on the instruction of Davido.
“The CCTV footage at the hospital picked the escort vehicle and the entire activity. The vehicle was recovered from Davido’s residence at 7, Awoshika Street, Lekki Phase 1.
“This completely debunks Davido’s claim that he did not know how the deceased got to the General Hospital. The interim autopsy report stated that the victim died of Asphyxia.”
DJ Olu, another friend of Davido, died a few days ago.
