Police says Davido lied about Tagbo's death as autopsy reveals he died of suffocation, not intoxication

The Nigerian Police, Lagos Command have re-invited singer, Davido in relation to the death of Tagbo Umeike, who was reported to have died in the wee hours of October 3.

According to a report by The Nation, the Police said Tagbo died from suffocation, not from intoxication as earlier reported.

Acting Police Commissioner, Imohimi Edgal stated this at a briefing on Wednesday afternoon, where he announced that Davido has been re-invited for questioning.

Edgal added that he was abandoned in his car at the hospital by Davido’s driver and two of his friends.

Edgal said Davido has been reinvited for questioning because he lied that he only knew of the Tagbo’s demise while he was at a nightclub, DNA in Victoria Island.

Meanwhile, Dolapo Badmus, Zonal Police Public Relations Officer (Lagos/Ogun), has reacted to reports that DJ Olu (Davido's friend) and his friend Chime died of drug overdose.

According to the police spokesperson, the autopsy report is not out yet.

There are rumours that DJ Olu and Chime, who were found dead inside their car in an apartment complex in Banana Island over the weekend, died of drug overdose.

In a statement, the former Lagos state PPRO wondered why such rumour is being peddled when the autopsy result for the deceased persons was being expected.

Badmus said only the autopsy result of Tagbo is out.

“But why all these rumours that Olu Abiodun and Chime Amaechi died of drug overdose? she quipped.

“The commissioner of Police Lagos State command CP Imohimi Edgar never revealed that the two friends died as a result of overdose!

“The command is awaiting the result of the autopsy and investigation is ongoing! Let’s avoid peddling stories that are not confirmed especially when people have lost their lives.

“Only Tagbo’s autopsy just returned. It will be made public at appropriate time if need be. #policeawaitsautopsy #waitforreport.”
