CCTV footage, statement released by Davido after friend’s death


Nigerian music act Davido has once again reiterated his innocence in the death of his friend, Tagbo Umeike.

Mr Tagbo died on 3 October and his body was reportedly abandoned in front of a hospital in Lagos.

The police say the autopsy shows Mr Tagbo died from suffocation.


Previously the police had said other CCTV footage showed Davido’s escort vehicle dropped Mr Tagbo’s dead body off outside the hospital.

Davido maintains that he didn’t know how his friend died and never gave the order for Mr Tagbo’s body to be dumped.

Speaking through his lawyer, Norrison Quakers, he insisted that at no time did his late friend enter his car and that he left Mr Tagbo behind at the club where they last saw each other.
