At about 5am on Tuesday October 3rd, two people brought a dead body in a car to General Hospital, Lagos Island.

The corpse would turn out to be Tagbo Umeike, now deceased beau of Caroline Danjuma and friend to leading Nigerian artiste, Davido.

There were no doctors on duty, and the nurses at the Casualty Unit of the hospital saw that Tagbo was already dead, and foaming from the mouth.

For this reason, the hospital could not accept him because he was brought in dead and none of the men with the corpse were willing to sign that he was dead on arrival.

"The 2 people were wearing face caps and they abandoned Tagbo in his car with his  international passport, wallet and car keys, and  left in another vehicle" a hospital staff speaking under the condition of anonymity told Bounce News

When day broke, officers from the Nigerian Police Area 'A' Command located at ‘Lion Building’ were called, and they took away the car with the corpse in it.

However, staff of the hospital did not know that the body was connected to Davido until Caroline Danjuma showed up at the hospital.

"Caroline Danjuma came in the morning and was shouting, she wanted to know the whereabouts of Tagbo because she said she had called Davido and he wasn't responding. It was another friend who told her Tagbo was taken to the hospital" our source revealed.

It was at this point that hospital staff directed her to Lion Building.

Caroline would later go on Instagram to accuse Davido and crew of dumping Tagbo's dead body in the hospital, opening up the can of worms. 

Davido, however, finally told his own side of the story almost 2 weeks later, a day after the Lagos state police commissioner, Imohimi Edgal said Davido would be re-invited for questioning, because the police could not verify his side of the story.

Edgal stated that Tagbo drank no fewer than 40 shots of tequila as revealed by the bartender. He further revealed that Tagbo was ferried and abandoned at the hospital under instructions from Davido, debunking his earlier claims that he knew nothing about how Tagbo got to the hospital.

Davido, in his rebutal via his lawyers, however said he never lied to the Police, but actually left Tagbo at Shisha bar to go to DNA nightclub, like he had earlier stated when the police invited him for questioning.

The ‘If’ crooner also said that Tagbo was taken to the hospital without his knowledge, and that his escort vehicle must have followed them to the hospital because they assumed since Tagbo was his friend. He also released CCTV footages to back his claim.

While the exact circumstances under which Tagbo died remain unknown, what remains clear is that the last has not been heard of this case.
