Tagbo died of suffocation – Davido reacts to new report

According to reports, two of Davido’s boys who dropped late Tagbo Umeike at the hospital on October 2nd have been arrested by the Lagos State police command.

According to the Vanguard, The Police confirmed that Afro hip-hop artist, Davido Adeleke, was being interrogated over the death of his friend, Tagbo Umeike, following the discovery that his statements were laced with lies.

It’s been revealed that Tagbo died of suffocation and not alcohol intoxication.

According to the commisioner, Davido said he was informed of Tagbo’s death by a mutual friend while he was at DNA night Club. Further investigation by the police also revealed that Tagbo was taken to the hospital by Davido’s driver (Tunde Yusuf) and two of Davido’s friends.

Consequently, David was invited for interrogations. Davido was at the Command’s headquarters yesterday, in the company of his lawyer. From there, he was moved to Lion Building at about 5p.m., where he was still being quizzed at press time.

This is just as Tagbo’s family, yesterday, released a statement signed by one Mrs Equi Araka, saying there is more to his death.

“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 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, which means suffocation. At the end of this fresh round of investigation, I will tell Lagosians our findings.”

Meanwhile, Davido has reacted to new report on Tagbo’s death! He posted on his snapchat;
