Following the controversies surrounding Tagbo Umeike’s death, pop star, Davido, has officially responded to claims and reports making the rounds that he lied to the police. Davido releases statement.

Davido releases statement
This is coming after Davido was indicted by the Lagos state police commissioner in Tagbo Umeike’s death. Recall that the state Acting Police Commissioner, Imohimi Edgal, had said Davido was re invited for questioning because he lied. Davido, during investigation, reportedly told the investigative team at Lion Building, Lagos Island, that he was not at Shisha Bar, from where the deceased was rushed and dumped at the Lagos Island General Hospital. He rather said he left the bar for DNA Nightclub in Victoria Island area of the state, where he was informed about Umeike’s death, a claim that has been found to be untrue.
But Davido says he is not a liar nor the callous friend the media has been trying to paint him to be. Davido insists he wasn’t present the moment Tagbo died and the videos he released rove it.
Again, that after his friend Tagbo took the 40 shots of tequila and started acting up, he, Davido, offered to take Tagbo home safely, an offer Tagbo refused.
