Entertainers and other stakeholders are expected to pay the last respect to socialite and Davido’s friend, Tagbo Umeike, today (Friday) when his remains will be buried in his home state, Anambra.
Tagbo’s death, on October 4, generated controversy, to the extent that Davido was invited and quizzed by the police, based on allegations of complicity in it.
Reports indicated that Tagbo was with Davido and his crew at a nightclub on October 4, 2017, before they allegedly decided to play a drinking game which had a winning price of an iPhone 8 and N200,000 cash sprang up.
He was said to have been taken to the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, Ikeja, Lagos, where he was said to have died.
While Davido’s driver and other allies are said to still be in police custody, an official postmortem examination conducted on Tagbo revealed that he died of suffocation.
The autopsy report was confirmed on Wednesday, October 11, 2017, by the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Edgar Imohimi.
