There have been several twists concerning the death of Tagbo who is a friend of pop star, Davido. The latest in the saga is the release of a CCTV footage by Davido’s camp that showed a staggering Tagbo obviously intoxicated, leaving the Shisha Room.
However, in an exclusive chat with Saturday Beats, Damilola Usman, who claims to be a family friend of the deceased, said the police investigation would not be based on the viral video released by Davido’s camp.
He explained that the police have since seen that footage but they also have in their custody, a CCTV footage which showed the way Tagbo was dumped in the hospital. Usman claims that he watched the CCTV obtained from the hospital and he recognised someone in the footage.
Usman said, “Few days ago, I was told that during Davido’s visit to the police station, he brought the guys who dumped Tagbo’s body at the general hospital to the police station. The same guys that they saw in the CCTV were the ones that were brought to the police station. The CCTV in the hospital showed the guys that dropped him and the way he was dropped at the hospital.
“From my observation, the police investigation would not be based on the CCTV from the Shisha Room where they went to drink. Davido is only trying to defend himself by releasing the CCTV video footage of the Shisha Room because the police already have that footage and they had seen it before Davido’s camp released the video. I believe they are going to base their investigation on the hospital’s CCTV.
“The question that Davido has been asked is why he asked people to drop Tagbo at the hospital and he is denying the claims. They are asking Davido that why his escorts would leave him to go and drop Tagbo’s body in the hospital. He is showing us the Shisha Room CCTV which revealed that the guy was drunk. We are all aware that he was drunk, but how did they treat him after realising that he was drunk? That is the question that he is being asked but he is trying to evade it.
I saw the CCTV footage at the police station and he knows the guys that went to drop him at the hospital. They are his boys; one of them was wearing a red fez cap and an Adidas clothing head to toe. The guys that went to drop him are Davido’s friend. I saw one of the guys at the Shisha Room on that fateful day and later that night, I also saw him at the Elegushi Beach but I don’t know when they went to drop him at the hospital. The police already have all the evidence they need and they are investigating the matter.
“The footage that was released which showed that Tagbo was high at the Shisha Room is not the issue; the question is what happened after.”
He told Saturday Beats that the deceased who is the first son of the family lost his father about five years ago and his mother is currently battling stroke.
“Tagbo’s father died about five or six years ago. He is the first son but second child of his mother. He has a younger brother, Chigbo but his elder sister who is the first born of the family is based in the UK. His mother has stroke and I am sure she is not happy about what is happening being a mother. I cannot really say much about the state of his mother and the only person that can say much about her is Chigbo because she is currently not in Lagos,” he said.
