Davido’s late friend, Tagbo Umeike, who died from suffocation, have been buried, the burial was done in his family compound in Anambra State on Friday.
There had been rumours that Mr. Umeike died of alcohol poisoning after his birthday party at Shisha Lounge in Lekki, Lagos on October 2.
Davido, complete name David Adeleke, became a man of interest after the rumours began circulating that he had a hand in Mr. Umeike’s departure.
The rumours became rife when Tagbo’s girlfriend and actress, Caroline Danjuma, accused Davido of not being truthful about what transpired on the night of Mr. Umeike’s death.
Two other associates of the singer, DJ Olu, 25, 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 Mr. Umeike.
Mr. Ajudua stated Davido was released by the police and has been absolved of murder allegations against him, and can be free to do his business as he pleases.
“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.
