Police will re-invite Davido for questioning because he lied

Tagbo Umeike, friend of Nigerian entertainer, Davido died from suffocation, the police in Lagos has said.

Meanwhile, DJ Olu another friend of Davido that passed on recently is slated for burial on Thursday, October 12, 2017.

However, he was invited on Wednesday by the Divisional Police Officer (DPO), Ikoyi, Lagos, where he was questioned by senior officers.

Our client was also not involved in the untimely death of the deceased, nor did he give any instructions to anyone to "dump" the corpse of Mr Tagbo Umeike anywhere.

The deceased was dumped in a vehicle in front of Lagos Island General Hospital.

"To be objective and verify facts, I called for a pre-investigation meeting in my conference room. 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". The statement also says the Police Commissioner's quote that Davido has a case to answer in the matter has caused him a lot of embarrassment. And this debunks the singer's claims that he did not know how the deceased got to the hospital.

On the cause of death of two other Davido's friends who were found dead inside a BMW auto marked KJA631AY on October 7 at Banana Island, Edgal said the autopsy had not been concluded.
