Imohimi also revealed that Davido had been re-invited for questioning to probe more into the activities that led to the death of Tagbo on the night he passed on.

Yesterday, the brother of the deceased debunked claims of an earlier autopsy report which circulated online claiming Tagbo died of excessive alcohol consumption.

Chigbo Umeike, brother to Tagbo said he was at the coroner’s office when the news broke online describing the autopsy report as false and off the mark but the result from the post-mortem reeled out by the Lagos CP seems not far from what was earlier rumoured.
