Tagbo’s death is back on news as a former aide to Davido, Aloma, reveals how he was offered a hundred million naira to indict the singer, Punch reports.
The news of his death was announced by Nollywood actress, Caroline Danjuma, who claimed to be a close friend to the deceased. She also sounded the alarm which placed Davido and his crew as suspects.
Davido and his crew, were at the centre of the news when Tagbo died. The police treated the case as a murder case. The crew and Davido were invited to the police station for questioning.
However, the autopsy later revealed that Tagbo died of excessive alcohol abuse.
Tagbo was buried in October 2017, in his hometown in Nnewi, Anambra state.
Aloma, a former aide to the FIA singer, narrated his ordeal in an interview with popular singer and beatmaker, Jahbless, in his podcast ‘Original Intelligence’.
He spoke on hos he was in a cell with over 150 inmates and how Davido showed him love even when he was in police custody.
He also spoke about the offer made to him to indict Davido.
“We had all stopped drinking except Tagbo. I guess he was too excited because it was his birthday. When we realized that he was drunk, we had to leave. More so, there was a show we had to attend. When we were leaving, Tagbo wanted to ride along in David’s car, but David said they should go and drop him at home. That was the last time I saw Tagbo.
“We advised the driver to take him to the hospital. I also left where I was to meet the driver and we took him to a general hospital. I carried Tagbo into the hospital. We waited for about 30 minutes in the hospital but nobody attended to us; they kept saying that the doctor will be with us soon. They said we should call his parents and we told the hospital staff that he is our close friend, and we have the money to pay. After about 45 minutes of waiting, I heard Tagbo say, ‘Aloma God bless you,’ and he died in my hand.
“Before I knew what was happening, the Police had arrived; they arrested me and the guy that was driving the car. I spent 18 days at Panti. I was in a cell with over 150 inmates. I did not bath all through. It was during this moment that I knew David loves me.
“When they first arrested us, they first took us to Lion Building. After three days, we were taken to Panti. At that point, they had already begun to do an autopsy on Tagbo because they said it was a murder case and we were the ones that killed Tagbo. Even my mother called me to tell her the truth, asking that what did we do to him.
“When we were at the Police station, Lion Building, they took me to a room and said that I am a ‘fall man’. Beware of this music industry, everyone is trying their best to pull David down. They told me to write a statement which will state that David killed Tagbo. They gave me a blank cheque of N100m just for me to write that David killed Tagbo.
“They said we should just write the statement and they will give us N100m or any other thing that we want. We refused. More so, I am certain that we will have spent all the money by this time. We wrote what happened. I am glad that we were honest because the whole incident was recorded right from when we were at the Shisha Room to the General Hospital; there were CCTVs,” Aloma said.
