CONFIRMED: Tagbo Died Of Suffocation
Contrary to news which made the rounds that Tagbo Umeike died of excess alcohol consumption, autopsy results have revealed that he actually died of asphyxia, otherwise known as suffocation.
This was made known to newsmen by the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Imohimi Edgar who revealed that the car in which Tagbo died was recovered at the residence of Nigerian artiste and friend to the deceased, Davido.
Asphyxia is a condition that arises when the body is deprived of oxygen causing unconsciousness or death.
According to CP Edgar, Tagbo was brought into General Hospital, Lagos Island, dead confirming the initial report put out by girlfriend, Caroline Danjuma that he was abandoned for dead by Davido and friends at the hospital.
He further revealed that a pre-investigation meeting which was attended by Caroline, family and friends of the deceased including Davido established that the late Tagbo met and drank with friends including Davido at Shisha bar on the night of his demise.
The bartender who was present at the meeting, confirmed that the deceased drank up to 40 cups of tequila and exhibited signs of intoxication.
CCTV footage also showed Tagbo was quarrelsome and violent.
However, despite his clear drunken state, what really did Tagbo in was a lack of oxygen which eventually led to his death.
According to the CP, further investigations 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.
All of their deliberations, according to Edgar, was captured on CCTV.
In the light of the new discovery, Davido has been re-invited for questioning, while the escort driver is still in police custody.
It would be recalled that news of Tagbo's death hit mainstream media after his girlfriend, former Nollywood actress, Caroline Danjuma went on Instagram to accuse Davido of having a hand in his death.
Davido and friends would later debunk Caroline's claims, saying that Davido left the club where Tagbo was to another place before Tagbo died.
