Police release six of Davido’s domestic staff, detain two

The Lagos state police command has detained two of the eight domestic staff of singer Davido who were earlier invited for questioning over the demise of his three-year-old son, Ifeanyi.

Ifeanyi drowned in his father’s Banana Island home on Monday, October 31.

Following the tragic incident, eight of domestic workers were invited by the police on Tuesday.

According to LIB, the spokesperson of the Lagos state police command, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, has given an update saying after a serious interrogation, six of the domestic staff were released while the chef and the nanny have been detained.

It was earlier reported that the Nanny was with Ifeanyi when 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 ran mad. He literally removed his clothes and wanted to run into the streets. He was held back. He and Chioma are inconsolable.” a source said after Davido and Chioma returned from their trip to the devastating news.
