Ifeanyi Adeleke: Police release six of Davido’s domestic staff, detain two
The Lagos state police command has continued to detain two out of the eight domestic staff of singer Davido who were invited for questioning over the demise of his three-year-old son, Ifeanyi Adeleke.
The toddler unfortunately drowned in his father’s Banana Island apartment on Monday, October 31, subsequently on Tuesday eight of the domestic staff were invited for questioning.
The spokesperson of the Lagos state police command, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, said following serious interrogation, six of the domestic staff have been released while the chef and the nanny have been detained.
It was earlier revealed that the Nanny was with late Ifeanyi and the Chef came to join them before the ugly incident occurred.
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 at Ibadan, Oyo State 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,” a source said.
