Tagbo’s death: Why Davido’s case file was transferred to outstate CID – Lagos CP

The Commissioner of Police in Lagos State, Imohimi Edgal has explained the reasons why the police transferred the case file of Hip Hop Star, David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido, to outstate Criminal Investigation Department (CID, Yaba in Lagos
Speaking on Channels Television Breakfast Show, Sunrise, Imohimi said the actions of Davido called for suspicion.
“I asked Davido that, ‘When you left that bar, did you have anything again to do with the deceased?’ What he said was that he was only informed by mutual friends in some other bar that the deceased had died and I took his word for it.
“I called for further investigations, pulled the CCTV cameras from the General Hospital, only to discover that it was Davido’s escort Hilux van, his driver, his friends that brought Tagbo Umeike (the deceased) dead and dumped in the hospital then fled the scene.”
Imohimi said the response by Davido raises suspicion, and that was what was being investigated by the police.
“That raises curiosity and of course that’s what we are investigating, and that was why I ordered that the matter be moved to outstate CID at Yaba for proper investigation and of course, we will duplicate the case file and forward to DPP, Ministry of Justice for legal advise, ” he said.
He said he believed Davido’s initial statement that he was only informed by mutual friends about Tagbo’s death and even told the actress, Caroline Danjuma to be careful about what she posts on social media because the integrity of someone is involved.
“When Actress Caroline Danjuma came up on Instagram that Tagbo Umeike was in the company of the Pop-star, Davido and friends when he died and she suspects foul play, I was forced to call all parties involved to my conference room as a kind of pre-investigation fact-finding and Davido was there with his family and friends, the victim’s family and friends plus Caroline Danjuma.
“I asked questions. I remember even telling Caroline Danjuma that ‘Look you don’t go on your Instagram page without verifying facts because a person’s reputation is concerned.”
The acting commissioner of Police in Lagos, however, said that the police is not speculating and the investigation into the case is based on facts.
“It is an open sincere process here. We are not speculating, we are basing our reports on facts,” he said.

Tagbo’s friend, Damilola Usman raises questions for Davido



Damilola Usman, a friend of Tagbo Umeike the friend to Nigerian hip hop star David Adeleke, a.k.a Davido, has identified questions the singer must answer over his friend’s death.
There have been several twists concerning the death of Tagbo, who died on his birthday after partying with Davido and his crew.
Davido had on Thursday released a CCTV footage that showed a staggering Tagbo obviously intoxicated, leaving the Shisha Room.
However Damilola who is a family friend of the deceased, said the police investigation would not be based on the viral video.
He said the police also has a CCTV footage which showed the way Tagbo was dumped in the hospital.
Damilola told Punch, “The CCTV in the hospital showed the guys that dropped him and the way he was dropped at the hospital.
“From my observation, the police investigation would not be based on the CCTV from the Shisha Room where they went to drink.
“Davido is only trying to defend himself by releasing the CCTV video footage of the Shisha Room because the police already have that footage and they had seen it before Davido’s camp released the video . I believe they are going to base their investigation on the hospital ’s CCTV.
“The question that Davido has been asked is why he asked people to drop Tagbo at the hospital and he is denying the claims.
“They are asking Davido why his escorts would leave him to go and drop Tagbo ’s body in the hospital.
“He is showing us the Shisha Room CCTV which revealed that the guy was drunk.
“We are all aware that he was drunk, but how did they treat him after realising that he was drunk?
“That is the question that he is being asked but he is trying to evade it.
“They are his boys; one of them was wearing a red fez cap and an Adidas clothing head to toe. The guys that went to drop him are Davido’s friend.
“I saw one of the guys at the Shisha Room on that fateful day and later that night, I also saw him at the Elegushi Beach but I don ’t know when they went to drop him at the hospital. The police already have all the evidence they need and they are investigating the matter.
“The footage that was released which showed that Tagbo was high at the Shisha Room is not the issue; the question is what happened after.”

Monkeypox virus hits Bayelsa

 

The Bayelsa Government is investigating suspected cases of monkeypox outbreak in its communities, the Commissioner for Health, Prof. Ebitimitula Etebu, has said.
Etebu spoke in Yenagoa on Wednesday following reports that some 11 persons, including a medical doctor, had been placed on surveillance in Yenagoa.
Those with the suspected cases had been quarantined at the Niger Delta University Teaching Hospital (NDUTH) , Okolobiri, Yenagoa Local Government Area.
The centre was established by Nigerian Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) and the epidemiological team of the state Ministry of Health to control the spread of the virus.
It was also learnt that the NCDC and the epidemiological team were tracing 49 persons, who were in contact with persons suspected to have been infected.
Etebu said that samples of the virus had been sent to the World Health Organisation laboratory in Dakar for confirmation.
He described monkeypox as a viral illness caused by a group of viruses that include chickenpox and smallpox.
The commissioner said the first case was noticed in the Democratic Republic of Congo and subsequent outbreaks in West Africa.
He said the virus had the Central African and the West African types but that the West African type was milder and had no records of mortality.
“Recently in Bayelsa, we noticed a suspected outbreak of monkeypox.
‘’It has not been confirmed. We have sent samples to the World Health Organisation reference laboratory in Dakar.
”When that comes out we will be sure that it is confirmed. But from all indications, it points towards it.
”As the name implies, the virus was first seen in monkeys but can also be found in all bush animals, such as rats, squirrels and antelopes.
”The source is usually all animals. It was first seen in monkeys and that is why it is called monkey pox.
‘’But every bush animal, such as rats, squirrels, antelopes are involved. So, the secretions from particularly dead animals are highly contagious, Etebu said.
He listed the symptoms of monkeypox as severe headache, fever, back pain, among others.
Etebu said that most worrisome of all the signs were rashes bigger than those caused by chickenpox.
The commissioner said the rashes were usually very discomforting and spread to the whole body of an infected person.
“We noticed the first index case from Agbura where somebody was purported to have killed and eaten a monkey and after that the people who are neighbours and families started developing the rashes.
“We have seen cases from as far as Biseni. We invited the NCDC together with our own epidemiological team from the Bayelsa Ministry of Health.
‘’We have been able to trace most of the people who have come in contact with the patients.
“So far, we have 10 patients and we have created an isolation centre at the NDUTH and most of them are on admission and we are following up the 49 cases that we are suspecting might come down with the illness.
‘’As a state we are taking care of all the expenses of all the isolated cases.
“The disease has an incubation period and it is also self-limiting in the sense that within two to four weeks, you get healed and it confers you with immunity for life.
“We have mobilised virtually every arsenal at our disposal in terms of sensitising the general public and making them aware by radio programmes, jingles and fliers.
‘’So the Nigerian Centre for Disease Control has mobilised fully to Bayelsa State. We are on top the situation.” Etebu said.

Davido Breaks Silence On Death Of Friend 

 

Jennifer Okundia
24 hours after Caroline Danjuma called out Davido on Instagram over the death of her friend, a guy known as Tagbo, who rolls with the singer and his crew, Davido has come out to speak on the incidence.
The father of two said he was saddened by the death of his friend Tagbo and sent his condolences to the family. He also stated that he is disappointed at the way false information and complete lies are making the rounds on social media and that this happened because he tries to treat everyone as his brother.
The actress also shared more photos of Tagbo with Davido’s crew and pictures of when the deceased was a toddler, stating that she will not keep quiet and that her friend was so good to her that she can even take a bullet for him.












In another post Caroline Danjuma shared:

Dr. Amir Needs Brain Scan –Harrysong


Harrison Okri, aka Harrysong, has had a really busy year. From releasing hit songs to leaving his former record label, he has also been a staple in the news.
Some days ago, a former producer signed to Five Star Music, Dr. Amir, went on social media to claim that he had filed a lawsuit against Harrysong for ‘stealing’ his song, Samankwe. He also claimed that Kcee illegally released a song he produced, Afro Shake.
In a chat with Sunday Scoop, Harrysong, dismissed and described Dr. Amir’s claims as a mere publicity stunt. “Dr. Amir is just looking for relevance, but he is going about it in the wrong way.
Earlier in the week, he called me and said he wanted to stir up controversy with my name. Immediately, I sounded a word of caution but he didn’t listen. He claims to have sued me, but as I speak, I have not been served with any court papers.
I do not even want to dignify whatever he is doing, but I just have to set the record straight.
I even have a screenshot of the text message he sent to me, in which he was begging, as proof. I think he should go for a proper brain scan.
With what he has done, he has betrayed our friendship, and I am also going to take him to court,” he said.
On his part, Dr. Amir maintained that he had a pending case in court against Harrysong. “Is that what Harrysong told you? If that was his response, then you should go ahead and publish it.
All I can say is that I’m not joking about this matter at all; it is not a publicity stunt. If he has not received any court papers, maybe his management has not given it to him.
And I don’t even know whether he is saying the truth, or lying that he has not gotten the court papers.”

President Buhari’s 2017 Independence Broadcast (Read Full Text)


Below is Full Text of President Muhammadu Buhari’s 2017 Independence Broadcast
October 1st remains a special date for all Nigerians as this marks the day when we attained one of the most precious of human desires — freedom.
Over the years the country has gone through trials and tribulations, but October 1st is always a day for celebrations.
It is a day for thanks giving, reflection and re-dedication.
It is also a day for remembrance. We should remind ourselves of the recent journey from 1999 – 2015, when our country happily returned to democratic rule.
However, in spite of oil prices being an average of $100 per barrel and about 2.1m barrels a day, that great piece of luck was squandered and the country’s social and physical infrastructure neglected.
We were left with no savings and huge infrastructure deficit.
The APC Government’s Campaign rallying cry to restore security, re-balance the economy and fight corruption was not all rhetoric.
The country must first be secured. The economy must be re-balanced so that we do not depend on oil alone. We must fight corruption which is Nigeria’s Number One Enemy. Our Administration is tackling these tasks in earnest.
In the past two years, Nigeria has recorded appreciable gains in political freedom. A political Party at the Centre losing elections of State Governor, National Assembly seat and even State Assemblies to the opposition parties is new to Nigeria.
Added to these are complete freedom to associate, to hold and disseminate opinions. Such developments clearly attest to the country’s growing political development. But like all freedoms, this is open to abuse.
Recent calls on re-structuring, quite proper in a legitimate debate, has let in highly irresponsible groups to call for dismemberment of the country. We can not and we will not allow such advocacy.
As a young Army Officer, I took part from the beginning to the end in our tragic civil war costing about 2m lives, resulting in fearful destruction and untold suffering. Those who are agitating for a re-run were not born by 1967 and have no idea of the horrendous consequences of the civil conflict which we went through.
I am very disappointed that responsible leaders of these communities do not warn their hot-headed youths what the country went through. Those who were there should tell those who were not there, the consequences of such folly.
At all events, proper dialogue and any desired constitutional changes should take place in a rational manner, at the National and State Assemblies. These are the proper and legal fora for National debate, not some lop-sided, un-democratic body with pre-determined set of objectives.
Government is keeping up the momentum of dialogue with stakeholders in the Niger Delta to keep the peace. We intend to address genuine grievances of the communities.
Government is grateful to the responsible leadership of those communities and will pursue lasting peace in the Niger Delta.
SECURITY
On security, Nigerians must be grateful to our gallant Armed Forces for rolling back the frontiers of Boko Haram’s terrorism, defeating them and reducing them to cowardly attacks on soft and vulnerable targets.
Nigeria is grateful to its neighbours and the international community for the collective efforts to defeat this world-wide menace of terrorism.
Not even the most organized and most equipped police and security forces in the world can escape the menace of modern day terrorism, as we have seen in recent years in Europe and other parts of the world.
But we are not letting up. Our Armed Forces in an effort to enhance the operational capability of troops of OPERATION LAFIYA DOLE have established Mobile Strike Teams in the North East. These will ensure the final push to wipe out the remnants of Boko Haram.
In addition, through targeted air strikes most of the leadership and identified logistics bases and routes of the insurgents have been neutralized. The Armed Forces have established a Naval presence in the Lake Chad Basin as part of the coordinated military efforts to curtail the movements or re-emergence of the sect in the area.
Government is working round the clock to ensure release of the remaining Chibok girls, as well as other persons in Boko Haram captivity. Government will continue to support the Armed Forces and other security agencies to fight not only terrorism, but kidnapping, armed robberies, herdsmen/farmers violence and to ensure peace, stability and security in our country.
ECONOMY
With respect to the economy, the Government has remained pro-active in its diversification policy. The Federal Government’s agricultural Anchor Borrowers Programme, which I launched in November 2015, has been an outstanding success with:
· N43.92 billion released through the CBN and 13 participating institutions,
· 200,000 small holder farmers from 29 states of the federation benefitting,
· 233,000 hectares of farmland cultivating eight commodities, namely Rice, Wheat, Maize, Cotton, soya-beans, Poultry, Cassava and Groundnuts, in addition to fish farming.
These initiatives have been undertaken in close collaboration with the states. I wish to commend the efforts of the Governors of Kebbi, Lagos, Ebonyi and Jigawa States for their support to the rice and fertilizer revolutions.
Equally commendable are contributions of the Governors of Ondo, Edo, Delta, Imo, Cross River, Benue, Ogun, Kaduna and Plateau States for their support for the Presidential initiative for palm oil, rubber, cashew, cassava, potatoes and others crops.
With the abundance of rainfall last year and this year, agriculture has enjoyed Divine intervention.
Since December last year, this Administration has produced over 7 million 50Kg bags of fertilizer. Eleven blending plants with a capacity of 2.1 million metric tons have been reactivated. We have saved $150 million in foreign exchange and N60 billion in subsidy. Fertilizer prices have dropped from N13,000 per 50Kg bag to N5,500.
Furthermore, a new presidential initiative is starting with each state of the Federation creating a minimum of 10,000 jobs for unemployed youths, again with the aid of CBN’s development finance initiatives.
Power remains a huge problem. As of September 12th, production of power reached an all — time high of 7,001 Megawatts. Government is increasing its investment, clearing up the operational and financial log jam bedeviling the industry. We hope to reach 10,000 Megawatts by 2020.
Key priorities include better energy mix through solar and Hydro technologies. I am glad to say that after many years of limbo, Mambilla Power Project has taken off.
Elsewhere in the economy the special window created for manufacturers, investors and exporters, foreign exchange requirements has proved very effective. Since April, about $7 billion has come through this window alone. The main effect of these policies is improved confidence in the economy and better investment sentiments.
The country has recorded 7 consecutive months of lower inflation, Naira rate is beginning to stabilize, appreciating from N525 per $1 in February this year to N360 today. Broad-based economic growth is leading us out of recession.
Furthermore, in order to stabilize the polity, Government gave additional support to states in the form of:
State Excess Crude Account loans,
Budget Support Facility,
·Stabilization Fund Release
to state and local government as follows:
·N200 billion in 2015
·N441 billion in 2016
·N1 trillion in 2017
Altogether totaling N1.642 trillion.
This was done to enable states to pay outstanding salaries, pensions and small business suppliers who had been all but crippled over the years.
In addition, the Government’s current N500 billion Special Intervention Programme is targeting groups through;
· Home Grown School Feeding Programme,
· N-Power Job creation to provide loans to small-scale traders and artisans,
· Conditional Cash Transfer,
·Family Homes Fund and
·Social Housing Scheme
CORRUPTION
Fellow Nigerians,
We are fully aware that fighting corruption was never going to be a straightforward task. We expected corrupt elements to use any weapon to fight back, mainly judicial obstruction and political diversion. But we are determined to eradicate corruption from our body politic.
In this fight, the Government has:
·Empowered teams of prosecutors,
·Assembled detailed databases,
·Accelerated the recovery of stolen funds
The Administration’s new institutional reforms include:
·Enforcing Treasury Single Account,
·Whistle-Blowers Policy,
·Integrated Payroll Personnel and Information System
We have signed multi-lateral cooperation agreements on criminal matters with friendly countries. There are signs of increasing cooperation from the Judiciary. Recently the Chief Justice of the Federation directed Heads of all our Courts of first instance and Appeal to accelerate hearings of corruption cases and dismiss any judicial officers found to have been compromised.
Justice Salami has just been appointed to chair the Judiciary’s anti-graft committee. Government expects a lot from this Committee.
I commend the National Assembly for refocusing on its oversight committees. They should, in addition, ensure swift passage of enabling corruption laws. But fighting corruption is a bottom to top operation. I call on all Nigerians to combat corruption at every turn. By not asking for and refusing to accept a bribe, by reporting unethical practices or by blowing a whistle, together we can beat corruption. The government for its part will work for accountability at all levels – Federal, State and Local Governments. CHANGE will then be real.
As we enter the second half of our term of office, we intend to accelerate progress and intensify our resolve to fix the country’s challenges and problems.
Thank you and a happy holiday to all of you.
God bless our country
