The Lagos state police as re-invite the pop star Davido for some deep questioning over the death of his late friend Tagbo Umeike, whose autopsy report claims he died from suffocation, and not alcohol poisoning that was originally reported.
The police commissioner, Imohimi Edgal, stated this at a briefing in Lagos on Wednesday afternoon, where he announced that Davido has been re-invited for questioning after he lied to police.
Mr. Edgal said Davido has been re-invited for questioning because he lied that he only knew of Tagbo’s demise while he was at DNA nightclub, in Victoria Island, a claim that has been found to be untrue.
According to Mr. Edgal, the autopsy report revealed that Tagbo died from suffocation, adding that Davido’s driver and two of his friends abandoned him in his car at the hospital.
Tagbo reportedly died on the eve of his birthday on Tuesday at a bar in the Lekki area of the state. Two other associates of the singer – DJ Olu, 25, and Chime Amaechi – were found lifeless in the former’s BMW car parked in the underground garage of Block B, Banana Island, Lagos on Saturday, three days after Tagbo’s death.
This report was filed in shortly after Davido released CCTV Footage, dissociating himself from the death of his close pal, Tagbo Umeike. His legal adviser, Norrison Quakers (SAN) said Our client maintains that he has not in any way lied about what he knows about the unfortunate incident, neither has his statement to the police been incoherent as unfortunately being presented in the media,” the statement read.
