Lagos CP Questions Davido, Others Over Tagbo’s Death
The Acting Commissioner of Police for Lagos State, Edgar Imohimi has said on Thursday that the command has commenced investigation to unravel the circumstances surrounding the death of Tagbo, a friend of popular hip hop musician, David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido.
Imohimi, in a chat with The Punch correspondent mentioned that no foul play was suspected so far, and urged parties involved to embrace peace while investigations continued.
Unconfirmed report has it that Tagbo was with Davido and some other friends at a bar in Lekki area of Lagos State a night before his death.
Imohimi in his words said: “The Lion Building Police Division is investigating a case of sudden and unnatural death. The person concerned, who was Davido’s friend, was brought in dead to a general hospital on Lagos Island and the doctor notified the police.
“The autopsy report will be out tomorrow (Friday) or Monday and that would determine the cause of death. The deceased’s girlfriend insinuated that Davido had a hand in the friend’s death because they (Tagbo and Davido) were seen together in a bar somewhere in Lekki, having a nice time.
“I called all the parties concerned because there is always the need for the police to ensure that there is no breakdown of law and order. The police are already investigating the circumstances surrounding the death and we are ensuring that all possible angles are touched. We will issue a statement after investigations. Meanwhile, there is no need for speculations.”
Davido, who also responded to the allegation via his snapchat account wrote: “People are just wicked and this is what I get for treating everyone like a brother. I was deeply saddened to hear the sudden death of my friend, Tagbo. First and foremost, my sincere condolences and prayers are with the family at this time. I’ve been in the same position before, multiple times and of recent.
“But it is disappointing that false information and complete lies have been put out there, using my name as usual. Out of total respect for Tagbo and his family, I will not discuss this matter further for now. Rest in peace, Tagbo.”
