Davido’s friends reveal reasons they fled hospital After death of Tagbo



New reports have emerged on the death of Tagbo Umeike, a friend to popular singer, Davido, who reportedly died of suffocation, after an exuberant club session on the eve of his birthday.

The deceased whose passing has called for the investigation of the singer and his group was buried on Friday, but confessions by two arrested suspects in Davido’s camp reveal that Tagbo made it alive to the Lagos Island General Hospital were he was pronounced dead.

According to one of the suspects, Olaoye, the late Tagbo was rushed to the hospital after complaining his stomach was hurting, but died at the time the doctor arrived.

Olaoye who is currently detained at the Police State Criminal Investigation Department, Panti, Lagos, disclosed that after the doctor confirmed Tagbo was dead, they were asked to fill a form to enable the hospital prepare his death certificate.

But as they were about obtaining his international passport, “the doctor then said that people in-charge of such case were coming and that we should wait and meet them before the corpse can be kept in the mortuary.”

This statement, he said sent shivers down their spine, as they knew the doctor was referring to the police. Hence, they fled the hospital in a Hillux driven by Davido’s security guard.

He noted that they had to run because in Nigeria, “even if it is clear that you had nothing to do with the death of someone, as long as you were at the scene, they will lock you up and accuse you of murder.”

Then second suspect, Busari Idris, corroborated Olaoye’s statement.

He said: “When the doctor said that we have to wait for the police, we knew the implication, that was why we fled the scene.”
