All socioeconomic classes in Nigeria expressed their condolences after the three-year-old Ifeanyi Adeleke, son of Nigerian music artist Davido, passed away.
The police may conduct an autopsy to determine whether Ifeanyi Adeleke, the son of Davido and his fiancée, Chioma Rowland, drowned in the pool at his father’s residence in the Banana Island district of Lagos State, according to sources.
An autopsy in this circumstance is typical for the police, according to a reputable source who confirmed the fact. The insider further stated that the police would refrain from taking any further action if the deceased family members objected.
Although the family members have not spoken up yet because they are still in shock, the source stated that until someone tells them to stop, an autopsy will be performed as is customary practice in every death case.
At Davido’s residence, the police detained eight employees, including Ifeanyi’s Nanny. Benjamin Hundeyin, a spokesman for the Lagos Police, verified that the drowning occurred at Davido’s home.
According to a recent report, two of the eight have been arrested by police, while the other six have been sent go.
Details of the two people detained are not known yet. Detailing how Ifeanyi lost his life, Linda Ikeji reported that a source close to the heartbreaking incident has named the Nanny and Chef as those who last came into contact with the three-year-old. “The Nanny was with Ifeanyi and the Chef came to join them.
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 minutes until a security guard spotted him in the pool, no one could explain how the boy got in the pool,” the website said.
Before the tragedy, Davido and Chioma traveled to a distant state. Sadly, they have learned the terrible news upon their return from their trip. According to a source explaining the singer’s reaction to the news, “Davido ran crazy. He physically disrobed and prepared to sprint into the streets. He was restrained. He is crying, and Chioma is also.
According to sources, an autopsy will be performed on the boy’s body before it is transferred to the mortuary to identify the cause of death. According to LIB, Davido and Chioma are being held hostage at his father’s house. Friends, employees, and coworkers are not allowed to visit.
