The Lagos state police command has detained two of the eight domestic staff of singer Davido invited for questioning over the demise of his three-year-old son, Ifeanyi.
The toddler unfortunately drowned in his father’s Banana Island apartment on Monday, October 31.
It was reported that eight of the domestic staff were invited for questioning on Tuesday November 1.
Speaking to LIB, the spokesperson of the Lagos state police command, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, said following serious interrogation, six of the domestic staff brought in for questioning, have been released while the chef and the nanny whose duty was to cater for the wellbeing of the little boy, have been detained.
Recall that a source close to the heartbreaking incident told LIB that the Nanny was with Ifeanyi and the Chef came to join them. The Nanny was said to have moved slightly away to receive a call. When she returned, she couldn’t find Ifeanyi and assumed he was with the Chef but the Chef said he had left Ifeanyi with her. They began to frantically look for Ifeanyi all over the house for close to 20 mins until a security guard spotted him in the pool.
No one could explain how the boy got in the pool. Davido and Chioma were said to have returned from their trip to the devastating news.
“Davido ran mad. He literally removed his clothes and wanted to run into the streets. He was held back. He and Chioma are inconsolable.” the source told LIB
