Olu and Chime were allegedly found dead in his (Olu’s) car just days after the death of another Davido’s crew member,Tagbo.
Davido had denied his involvement in Tagbo’s demise.
His reaction followed an allegation by former actress, Caroline Danjuma, who accused the artiste of negligence.
“People are just wicked this is what I get for treating everyone like my brother”, Davido wrote.
“I was deeply saddened to hear of the sudden death of my friend Tagbo.
“First and foremost my sincere condolences and prayers are with his family and friends at this time.
“I’ve been in this position before multiple times and also of recent.
“But it is also disappointing that false information and complete lies have been put out there using my name as usual.
“Out of total respect for late Tagbo and his family I’ll not discuss this matter further for now.’’
Meanwhile, Davido honoured the invitation of Lagos Police Commissioner Edgal Imohimi on Monday when he showed up at the command headquarter in relation with the death.
An insider said just as Davido showed up for questioning, his manager, Asa Asika and some workers were arrested by police and whisked to Area A Command in Bariga where they were briefly detained.
Some have alleged that Tagbo, Davido and others were engaged in a drinking game when he allegedly passed out.
The source said the drinking idea started with Davido who promised to give a brand new iPhone 8 and N200, 000 Naira to the winner.
Tagbo who was serious about winning the huge prize reportedly overdosed on the alcohol collapsed and died. (NAN)
