Davido claimed he left the venue without Tagbo for another club - DNA, where he heard Tagbo had died.

Further investigation ordered by the CP then showed that one Tunde Yesufu - driver of a white escort vehicle, one Agbaje Olaoye, and one other person took the deceased, Tagbo to the hospital and abandoned him on Davido's instruction.

CCTV captured all their deliberations and the escort vehicle that was driven by these persons was also recovered at the residence of David Adeleke.  

This debunks Davido's claims that he didn't know how Tagbo got to General Hospital.

It also necessitated Davido being re-invited for questioning to explain why Tagbo was dumped without any attempt to meet with the doctor. 

Davido has been re-invited and is being interrogated.

Meanwhile, autopsy reports have shown Tagbo died of suffocation.

The escort driver is still in police custody.

CP Edgar told newsmen that he stepped into the investigation to avoid speculations as the case was a sensitive one.
