Latest on Davido Case: Singer attending funeral, Expected in Harare tomorrow
Nigerian Pop Star David Adeleke was yesterday re-invited by the police for questioning over the death of his friend Tagbo Umeike.
According to Nigerian reports, Wednesday afternoon the police commissioner, Imohimi Edgal, stated at a briefing in Lagos that Davido had been re-invited for questioning after he gave a false statement to the police.
Mr Edgal according to Nigerian media reports, indicated that Davido had said that he only knew of Tagbo’s death while he was at DNA nightclub, in Victoria Island, a claim that has been found to be untrue.
Police have revealed an autopsy which shows that Tagbo died of suffocation and not alcohol as had been believed.
