The death of Davido’s friend, Tagbo Umeike, has been attributed to suffocation. The Lagos State Police Command made the revealation which was contained in the autopsy of the artiste’s Late friend who was reported to have died in the music star’s car.
Speaking at a press briefing in Lagos, where the disclosure was made on Wednesday, the Acting Commissioner of Police, Imohimi Edgal, also disclosed that Davido has been re-invited for questioning over Tagbo’s death.

According to the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Imohimi Edgar, Davido had claimed that he only heard about Tagbo’s death from mutual friends.
He said the Davido admitted that he and his crew had drinks with the deceased the night before his death at DNA, a nightclub in Lagos, after which they parted ways.
But the police boss, who spoke at a press briefing in Lagos, said a CCTV footage showed that Tagbo’s lifeless body was dropped at a hospital with Davido’s car, driven by his driver and two other friends.
This necessitated the police to re-invite the “if” hit maker.
Reacting to the latest developments, Davido took to Snapchat on Wednesday, discrediting the police claims.
He also promised to release a statement and a footage that would throw light into the incident.
The CCTV footage, owned by the hospital Tagbo’s body was dropped, was said to have captured the entire scenario on that fateful day.
