The development on the case regarding the untimely death of the young boy was confirmed by the Lagos State Police Command’s spokesperson, Benjamin Hundeyin.
Earlier, the police command revealed that an autopsy will be conducted on the young boy to ascertain whether he truly died from drowning or if there was an external force that caused the young boy’s untimely death.
A source stated that it was a norm for the police to conduct an autopsy on the corpse, especially in such a case but they would willingly back off should the family of the deceased refuse to give them their consent to doing so.
“Though the family members are not saying anything yet because they are still in shock but until anybody says stop, the standard procedure is to conduct an autopsy and we are going to follow that procedure just like in any case of death,” the source said.
Meanwhile, the nanny and the cook who were responsible for Ifeanyi’s safety whiles his parents were away have been detained. Six other domestic workers who were arrested have reportedly been released.
As a reminder, Davido’s son, Ifeanyi drowned on Monday 31st October 2022. He was said to have been rushed to the Evercare Hospital in Lekki for medical attention but was pronounced dead.
Staunch fans and colleague celebrities of Davido took to their social media pages to pay tribute to the young boy and also console the singer, his fianceé, Chioma, and the bereaved family.
