See Gobe! Police recover vehicle used in dumping Tagbo’s body from Davido’s house

Late Tagbo and Davido

The police say they have recovered the vehicle used in dumping Tagbo Umeike’s body.

The vehicle was recovered from singer Davido’s house and arrests have been made, the police said.

Tagbo died on Tuesday – the eve of his birthday at a bar in Lekki, Lagos.

The popular musician, David Adeleke, aka Davido, is currently under fire for allegedly lying to the police that he did not know how his deceased friend, Tagbo, got to the Lagos General Hospital premises.

The acting Police Commissioner in Lagos, Imohimi Edgal, on Wednesday told reporters that Close Circuit Television (CCTV) footages from the hospital proved that Tagbo was brought in dead (BID) by Davido’s escort driver, Tunde Usutu, and two of Davido’s friends, Agbeje Olaoye and Idris Busari.

He said the men abandoned the deceased inside his ash Toyota Camry LSD378EL on the instruction of Davido.

According to Mr. Edgal, Davido, his friends and the escort driver were being questioned by the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) Lion Building.

“To be objective and verify facts, I called for a pre-investigation meeting in my conference room. In attendance were all parties including family, friends of the deceased; those of Davido; Caroline Danjuma; the DPO and investigating officers.”

The meeting confirmed that the deceased on that day met and had drinks with friends at Shisha Bar amongst whom was Davido. The bar tender confirmed the deceased had as much as 40 tots of Tequila and exhibited signs of drunkenness, the commissioner said.

The CCTV footage also confirmed this. Davido had reportedly told the police he had left Shisha Bar for DNA Night Club in Victoria Island without the deceased and was only informed by mutual friends of his death while he was at DNA.

However, police investigation revealed that Davido’s white Toyota Hilux escort driver, Tunde Usutu, accompanied by one Agbeje Olaoye and one Idris Busari, both Davido’s friends, took the deceased to the General Hospital Lagos and abandoned him in his vehicle on the instruction of Davido, the commissioner said.

The CCTV footage at the hospital picked the escort vehicle and the entire activity. The vehicle was recovered from Davido’s residence at 7, Awoshika Street, Lekki Phase 1, Mr. Edgal said.

This completely debunks Davido’s claim that he did not know how the deceased got to the General Hospital, the commissioner said. The interim autopsy report stated that the victim died of Asphyxia (suffocation).

On the cause of death of two other Davido’s friends who were found dead inside a BMW car marked KJA631AY on October 7 at Banana Island, Mr. Edgal said the autopsy had not been concluded. Davido has been re-invited for questioning.
