Davido has released a statement distancing himself from any involvement in the death of his friend Tagbo Umeike. Davido was set to be in Zimbabwe today for Jah Prayzah’s Kutonga Kwaro album launch but will no longer make it after he was invited to assist with investigations.
On Wednesday, Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi, said an autopsy revealed that Umeike had died of suffocation, and that Davido had instructed two of his friends to “abandon” Umeike’s body in front of General Hospital, Lagos Island. Imohimi also claimed that hospital footage showed a white car owned by Davido near the hospital on the night of Umeike’s death.
