Police Picks all Davido’s Domestic Staff over Son’s Death

Eight persons employed as domestic workers at singer Davido’s Banana Island residence, including his son’s nanny and cook are being interrogated by the police over the death of his three-year-old son, Ifeanyi David Junior Adeleke.

The toddler was said to have drowned in the family’s swimming pool on Monday night while his parents, David and Chioma were on a trip to Ibadan for a family function.

Empire reported that he was rushed to Evercare Hospital in Lekki where he was pronounced death on arrival.

Following the news of his death, Nigerians have wondered why his minders never felt his absence as he was said to have been in the pool for a long time before drowning.

The Lagos state police however weighed in on the current controversy, as spokesman, SP Benjamin Hundeyin said the command already picked up Davido’s domestic staff and was questioning them  to understand what really happened.

“Domestic staff at Davido’a home have been taken to the station to give their own account of what happened. I wouldn’t call that arrest yet.

“If after they all give their own account of what happened and after preliminary investigations, anyone of them is found culpable, the person will now be placed under arrest.

“Yes, the nanny is also with them. We are interviewing them separately to understand what happened. It is indeed a painful situation and we condole with the family,” he said.
