Davido Is Cleared Of All Murder Allegations By Police

After being entangled in a scandal that almost threatened his career and livelihood, Nigerian pop star, Davido, is now allowed to go free and has been cleared of all allegations of murder or involvement in the mysterious death of his friend Tagbo Umeike.

Davido became a person of interest by the police after rumours began circulating that he was involved in Mr Umeike’s death when Tagbo’s girlfriend and actress, Caroline Danjuma, accused Davido of not being truthful about what transpired the night of Mr Umeike’s death on her social media.

According to the autopsy report, Mr Umeike died from suffocation though it was originally reported that he died of alcohol poisoning after his birthday party at Shisha Lounge in Lekki, Lagos by a fake autopsy report released online.

Davido’s legal counsel, Mr Bobo F. Ajudua, said that Davido was released by the police and was absolved of murder allegations against him, and declared him free to go about his business as he pleased. 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 a result he’s been allowed to go.”

Davido has openly declared that he has forgiven everyone who wrongly accused or wrote anything about him during these trying times. He wrote:

“Thank you, Jesus. Persons that said false things about me or accused me of what I don’t know, I sincerely forgive you and God bless you. We move on, let’s all be better. Thank you, Lord. Thank you to everyone that prayed for me and to those who didn’t, maybe you forgot. We thank God all in all, now let’s get back to the music.”
