Tagbo: Davido Allegedly LIED To Police

Music act, David Adeleke, aka Davido is under fire for lying to the police that he did not know how his deceased friend, Tagbo Umeike, got to the Lagos General Hospital’s premise.

Acting Police Commissioner Imohimi Edgal, Wednesday, told reporters that Close Circuit Television  (CCTV) footages from the hospital proved that Umeike was brought in dead (BID) by Davido’s escort driver, Tunde Usutu and two of his (Davido) friends, Agbeje Olaoye and Idris Busari.

He said the men abandoned the deceased inside his ash Toyota Camry LSD378EL on the instruction of Davido.

According to Edgal, Davido, his friends and the escort driver were being questioned by the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) Lion Building.

He said: “On October 3, at about 9:20am, the Chief Security Officer (CSO) of General Hospital Lagos, Oparanti Moshood, alerted the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) Lion Building that an unidentified male was brought in dead (BID) in an Ash Toyota Camry Saloon car marked LSD378EL by two unidentified males.

“From the international passport found in the deceased’s car, the DPO gave his identity as Tagbo Umeike. Immediately after, one Caroline Danjuma, an actress and the victim’s fiancee, published on her Instagram page that her boyfriend died in the company of one David Adeleke, alias Davido and friends.

“To be objective and verify facts, I called for a pre-investigation meeting in my conference room. In attendance were all parties including family, friends of the deceased; those of Davido; Caroline Danjuma; the DPO and investigating officers.

“The meeting confirmed that the deceased Tagbo Umeike on that day met and had drinks with friends at Shisha Bar amongst whom was Davido. The bar tender confirmed the deceased had as much as 40 tots of Tequila and exhibited signs of drunkenness.

The CCTV footage also confirmed this.

“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.

“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.


  1. Hmmmm. Davido should be thoroughly investigated

  2. Just observing

  3. What is d cp saying.He should kip quiet d boy died of excessive alcohol intake simple as dat if Davido lied so be it he was scared that was he lied to d cops.still tagbo shack to death

    1. Paul, you need to shut up and let the police do their job.

  4. If only they didn't leave him in the car alone. Who knows

  5. Good job by our Police Force.

    The family of Tagbo need to put more pressure on the police or else the Nigerian Police will abandon the investigation they are doing on Tagbo once money exchanged hands.

    If not for Caroline Danjuma and the power of Internet/social media, I doubt if the Police would have come this far in their investigations.

    I bet you, the Davido camp are already processing how they will bribe the police so that the police can discontinue or even shut down the investigation they are doing on what actually happened and surrounded the death of this promising guy called Tagbo.

    The family of Tagbo should ensured that the already impounded Davido's vehicle is not tampered with and not released, as evidence as to why Tagbo died could be in that vehicle.

    It is possible that Tagbo could have been poisoned while being drunk in that vehicle, as there was no reason for Davido's people to have abandoned Tagbo if they did not have their hands in his death.

    In fact, the drug that was found in Tagbo's during his autopsy could have been given to him while being in Davido's vehicle. That is very possible.

    That Davido's vehicle need to be searched from top to bottom with a microscope if need be.

    Tagbo's life mattered, as he is no more.

    We should all continue to pray for his soul to Rest In Peace, but his death must be fully investigated and anyone found liable for causing or contributing to as to why he died must be punished.
