Tagbo’s Death: “Soon a statement and footage will be released” – Davido



Davido has said that he’ll soon be releasing a statement and footage on his friend Tagbo Umeike‘s demise.

Davido, in his statement on Instagram said that he has refused to speak out of respect for Tagbo and his family. “Enough is enough. God bless you guys!! Everyone be safe please!!” he wrote.

This is coming after the release of the autopsy report which stated that the deceased died of suffocation.

Lagos police commissioner Edgar Imohimi had said Davido was reinvited for questioning, adding that his driver and two others dropped Tagbo’s body at the hospital and left.

In a statement at a briefing on Monday, Imohimi said:

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.

    Sad the guy had to die in such an unfortunate manner. I pray the police will have the courage to investigate the case and push through with prosecution of persons who may have been associated with the death irrespective of the social and political standing of their families. Tagbo deserves justice. God keep his soul

    nawa. only God knows the truth. Even Davido sef. conflicting statements here n there… why did he claim initially not to have known anything when Caroline Danjuma reached out to him… and his team refusing to pick any calls relating to inquires on Tagbo….. i smell a rat….

      I smell a rat too. Davido was reckless that night and who knows was probably high on something or intoxicated to think straight. Or underestimated the magnitude of the situation. Bottom line is, Tagbo was abandoned and neglected.
      Unfortunately, he died like that

    Please let’s not spoil the investigations!
    At this point, everyone is innocent until proven otherwise by a competent court!

    Davido, remember you have a right to remain silent, till you get a lawyer!
    Hope justice reigns!
    RIP to the dead!

    Sincerely, Davido isn’t nice at this, for not reporting the case himself and if not for Caroline Danjuma, Nobody would have known about Tagbo. OBO u messed up big time, I knw u tried to protect urself from scandal but its someone’s life bro… that guy is gone forever, u wld hv alerted his residence and stop all these ur trashy statements, The autopsy has revealed the truth.

    Davido was just reckless in all of this! well he is a child so dont blame him. Like someone said, if it was his cousin, would he just be reckless with that life? probably not, he will prolly sleep in that hospital until he’s sure his cuZ is good! bottom line is Davido, you did not act like a true, honourable friend…I cant even for the life of me, call someone my friend & then carry on partying knowing that my friend is lying in the hospital? like I cant fathom it…you failed as a friend, you failed Davido, period!

    So how would Davido knowing the implications of his involvement in this ask them to take him to the hospital with his car and abandon him inside the car,and run away?That part doesn’take any sense at all.This guys are not sating the Truth.

      They prolly took him there in his car. Then, someone else drove Tagbo’s car to make it look like Tagbo drove himself there. Davido is not innocent in all of these. If na for civilized country, he will be charged with manslaughter. Himsef and all his friends.
      This is very messy. Bottom line, Davido was/is not a good friend.

    If David was an average Nigerian, he would have been in the police cell by now. I’m not saying he’s guilty of any crime but we know how the Nigerian Police usually works
