Tagbo’s autopsy report is fake, brother says

The autopsy report which circulated on Monday claiming that the actual cause of the death of Tagbo Umeike, a friend of popular singer Davido who was alleged to have been abandoned to die by the silver spoon pop star, was excessive alcohol consumption has been labelled as false by the brother of the deceased.

Chigbo Umeike, brother to Tagbo said he was at the coroner’s office when the news broke online describing the autopsy report which claimed that his late brother died of excessive alcohol consumption.

In an interview with LIB, Chigbo who revealed that his family will release a statement regarding his late brother’s autopsy result later today said; “The autopsy is false, I can say that categorically.

“I saw the fake autopsy when I was in the coroner’s office. We started the autopsy yesterday. We would release an official statement by the end of today,” he added.

Meanwhile, “IF” crooner, Davido has decided to cancel his scheduled performance at the on-going Felabration being staged at the new Afrikan Shrine scheduled for today to mourn three of his friends.

The past week has been one of mourning for the pop star as he has lost three friends namely Tagbo Umeike, Dj Olu and Chime all within days and in similar mysterious circumstances.

Davido, who cancelled his performance as a sign of respect to them, took to Snapchat to inform scores of his fans who expect him to turn up for Felabration that he will not be available.

“To all my fans expecting me at Felabration, I’m sorry I would not be performing anymore. I promise to make it up. I love you guys. Everyone stay prayed up,” he wrote.
