Police question Nigerian music star Davido over death
Police in Nigeria’s commercial capital Lagos say they are investigating Davido, whose birth name is David Adeleke, over the circumstances leading to the death of his friend, Tagbo Umeike.
A police spokesman told BBC News Pidgin that Davido is not considered a suspect at this stage, but confirmed that the afrobeats star had been called in for an interview, along with relatives of the deceased who were there at the time of his death.
The spokesman added”We are investigating where he [Davido] went to, video footage, just to give a clearer picture of what happened.”
Mr Tagbo, a friend of Davido, died on 3 October and his body was reportedly abandoned in front of a hospital in Lagos.
Davido has consistently denied any involvement in the death.
