‘‘The CP wants the family to know that at this period of their grief, the entire Command shares in their pain.

‘‘Although a delegation from the Command, led by the Divisional Police Officer, Ikoyi Division, CSP Mustapha N’Abba, who were at the Ikoyi home of the Oyebanjos on condolence visit did not meet anyone at home, it is expected that when the mourning period is over, the family should formerly report the circumstances that led to the unfortunate death of little Daniel to the police. May his soul rest in peace… Amen.

The toddler reportedly drowned at an unguarded pool in the singer’s residence in Ikoyi, Lagos, and the corpse of the said child has been reportedly moved to the morgue.
