The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Edgar Imohimi, on Wednesday said that Umueke Tagbo, a friend of music star, David Adeleke, better known as Davido, died of suffocation.
Speaking at a briefing earlier today, Imohimi disclosed that a postmortem examination conducted on the deceased revealed that he died of suffocation, adding that Davido’s driver and two of his friends abandoned him in his car at the hospital.
The state commissioner also said that Tagbo was said to have taken 40 shots of Tequila at Shasha Bar in Lekki.
Imohimi further said that Davido has been reinvited for questioning on the latest revelation because he lied that he only knew of Tagbo’s demise while he was at DNA nightclub, in Victoria Island, a claim that has been found to be untrue, Premium Times report.
Tagbo reportedly died on the eve of his birthday on Tuesday at a bar in the Lekki area of the state. Two other associates of the singer – DJ Olu, 25, and Chime Amaechi – were found lifeless in the former’s BMW car parked in the underground garage of Block B, Banana Island, Lagos on Saturday, three days after Tagbo’s death.
