Following the reports of Tagbo Umeike’s death, here’s all you need to know about the controversies surrounding his death.
After being invited by the Lagos State Commissioner Police, Davido allegedly adhered to the charge as he went to the office of the Commissioner of Police yesterday to give his own version of the event surrounding the death of his friend Tagbo.
The singer’s manager, Asa Asika and his workers were taken to the The Nigeria Police Area ‘A’ Command at CMS, Lagos over the controversial issue.
According to multiple sources, Tagbo was playing a drinking game with Davido and others when he allegedly passed out.
The mystery surrounding the death of Tagbo has had a new twist as an anonymous source has spoken to Pulse – on Thursday, October 5, 2017, the source claimed Tagbo and his friends, Davido inclusive were in the club when they decided to play a drinking game.
According to the source, the winner of the drinking contest was going to win a brand new iPhone 8 and the sum of 200,000 Naira. A game which was at the detriment of Tagbo.
The source is quoted:
“After he passed out, I think…I don’t know what happened…the CCTV showed that Davido was asking him to come into his car but I think they he (Tagbo) didn’t want to enter into Davido’s car, then they forced him into his own car…then there was this blackout. Now they don’t want to tell us how he got to the hospital. That is the question. How did he get to the hospital? Because the police met his car and his body in the hospital with no one”
When the source was questioned where the corpse of Tagbo found, he said
“They said his body was found outside the hospital, about three men putting on face cap, they dropped him outside the hospital and drove off. Why didn’t Davido call the police or anybody to report? We won’t know about anything if not for social media. Now all of them are running for their names.
He further said “I understand streets, nobody wants to be in wahala, but Davido is a celebrity, what was he running for, nobody will accuse you of anything. Just let us know what happened when the autopsy will tell us whats up! I don’t know why everybody is just avoiding him like they are not his friends.”
This anonymous source also said that the singer took to the office of the Lagos Sate Commissioner of the Police yesterday night, Wednesday, October 4, 2017 to give his own version of events.
He also claims that Davido’s manager, Asa Asika was allegedly arrested with his workers and brought to the Lion Building at CMS where the The Nigeria Police Area ‘A’ Command is located.
The source says Davido told the police that he left Tagbo at the shisha room of the night club where they drank. Davido tried getting him to his car but he didn’t want to join him, which was the last time he saw him.
The source confirmed that Tagbo’s corpse was dumped at the General Hospital on the Island. Pulse reached out to Davido’s manager Asa Askika to comment on this story. He declined.
This is coming precisely two days after Nollywood actress, Caroline Danjuma announced his death, claiming that the singer has some questions to answer concerning the death.
The Nigerian Police have now gotten involved and an investigation has been launched. All parties involved have been told not to talk to the press.
