More facts have emerged why controversial musician, David Adeleke, better known as Davido was arrested by the Nigerian Police Force.
His arrest, according to the Police “is in connection with the death of his friend Dagbo Umeke”.
It was gathered that Policemen picked him up upon discovery that the statement he earlier gave to the Police was nothing but falsehood.
The Commissioner of Police in Lagos State, Imohimi Edgal also explained the reasons the Police transferred the case file of Davido, to out-state Criminal Investigation Department (CID), Yaba in Lagos
Speaking on a Television Breakfast Show, Imohimi said the actions of Davido called for suspicion.
“I asked Davido that, ‘When you left that bar, did you have anything again to do with the deceased?’ What he said was that he was only informed by mutual friends in some other bar that the deceased had died and I took his word for it.
“I called for further investigations, pulled the CCTV cameras from the General Hospital, only to discover that it was Davido’s escort Hilux van, his driver, his friends that brought Tagbo Umeike (the deceased) dead and dumped in the hospital then fled the scene.”
Imohimi said the response by Davido raises suspicion, and that was what was being investigated by the police.
“That raises curiosity and of course that’s what we are investigating, and that was why I ordered that the matter be moved to outstate CID at Yaba for proper investigation and of course, we will duplicate the case file and forward to DPP, Ministry of Justice for legal advise, ” he said.
