Davido’s young son drowns: Nigerian police question staff
Following the death of Davido’s three-year-old son, Nigerian police have detained eight domestic workers for questioning.
Ifeanyi Adeleke, who turned three last month, drowned on Monday, according to a police spokesman.
According to media reports, it occurred in the swimming pool at his parents’ home in Lagos’s main city.
Davido and his fiancée, popular chef and influencer Chioma Rowland, have not yet commented on their son’s death.
The couple’s tragic drowning has trended globally, with fans and colleagues in the entertainment industry sending their heartfelt condolences.
According to police spokesman Benjamin Hundeyin, one of the couple’s domestic staff called the police at 22:00 local time (21:00 GMT) on Monday.
He confirmed that eight staff members had been summoned for questioning and that anyone with a case to answer would be arrested.
“We are reviewing the CCTV cameras to learn more about the circumstances surrounding his death,” Mr Hundeyin said.
“His body has been taken to the morgue. We have contacted his parents. They were with us last night, in fact “He stated.
Davido, real name David Adeleke, is regarded as one of Africa’s most prominent musicians. He has received MTV and BET music awards and has worked with international artists such as Chris Brown and Nicki Minaj.
During a trip to London last month, he and Chioma Rowland announced they would be getting married next year.
The singer has three other children with other partners.
In 2018, the one-year-old son of Nigerian singer D’Banj drowned in a pool in what seem like similar circumstances.
