The late Tagbo Umeike, who reportedly died from suffocation and alcohol poisoning after his birthday party at Shisha Lounge in Lekki, Lagos on October 2, has been laid to rest.
According to Premium Times, the remains of Tagbo, the late friend of HKN singer, Davido, was buried in his family compound in Anambra State on Friday.
Recall that rumours of Tagbo’s death became rife when his girlfriend and actress, Caroline Danjuma, accused Davido of not being truthful about what transpired on the night of Tagbo’s death.
Two other close pals of the singer, DJ Olu, and Chime Amaechi, were also found lifeless in the former’s BMW car parked in the underground garage of Block B, Banana Island, Lagos, three days after Tagbo’s death.
But after a tumultuous three weeks, Davido’s lawyer, Bobo Ajudua, said the singer has been cleared of all allegations of murder or involvement in the mysterious death of Tagbo, adding that the singer is free to go about his business as he pleases.
He said; “We’ve been to Panti and my client has given a statement there too. It’s clear from all the investigation, evidence, and statements given so far that David was not at any point with the deceased after he left him alive at Shisha room and as such he’s been released to go about his business.
“Of course if called on to give any more information he would gladly. But in truth he only knew so much about the night and has reproduced this time and time again. They’ve also observed the consistency between his statements and those of all the others interviewed. As as a result he’s been allowed to go,”.
