Pop star Davido was on Wednesday invited over to the Lagos State office of the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP) to answer questions over child trafficking allegations leveled against him by his babymama, Sophie Momodu.
Reports say Davido’s statement over the relationship between him and Sophie and the custody of his daughter, Imade was taken into context by the agency.
Sources say Davido arrived the premises of NAPTIP at about 11:07 am for questioning over child trafficking allegations after the mother of his child Sophie wrote a petition against the musician through her lawyer, Mr. Gbolaga Ajayi.
Confirming the development, Davido’s manager, Kamal Ajiboye said his boss went to the NAPTIP’s office to state his side of the story.
“They just asked him to state his side of the story. I know he was there today to sign his statement through his lawyer. I cannot say to what extent the matter is going or if it is going to court.” Kamal noted.
Both Dele Momodu and Davido’s father, Dr. Deji Adeleke had also been to NAPTIP office in Lagos on Monday for a meeting, but reports say Davido’s father was said to have left the meeting in annoyance.
