In a bid to distance himself from the death of Tagbo Umeike, embattled pop star Davido has released video evidence that shows the two friends leaving the nightclub where they had been partying, separately.
In a series of Instagram posts, Davido- who had repeatedly declared that he was unaware of Tagbo’s health and subsequent death- published CCTV footage of the last moments he saw Tagbo. The deceased seemed inebriated in the video and was seen being led towards another car while Davido got into his SUV and was driven away.
Similar, an official statement signed by his lawyers Norrison Quakers affirm Davido’s complete innocence in the matter, declaring that reports that suggest otherwise were false. The statement also says the Police Commissioner’s quote that Davido has a case to answer in the matter has caused him a lot of embarrassment.
It reads in part:
‘First of all we wish to state that our client was never arrested but rather made himself available to assist the police in its investigation and after a satisfactory explanation, he was allowed to go.’
It goes along to say ‘ For the records, we wish to state that our client has not been found culpable for the death of Mr Tagbo Umeike… Our client was also not involved in the untimely death of the deceased, nor did he give any instructions to anyone to ‘dump’ the corpse of Mr Tagbo Umeike anywhere. Further and as a matter of fact, we wish to state that the deceased did not step a foot, even for a second in any of our clients vehicles on the evening of this sad events.’
The statement says in conclusion: It is disheartening that the image of our client is being tarnished by mischief makers whose jaundiced publications and statements have had a negative impact on our clients emotional well being, family and fan base…
Our client in honour of the memory of his departed friends has suspended his next few shows and musical engagements.
