The Lagos State Police Command has revealed that the autopsy conducted on the corpse of singer Davido’s son, Ifeanyi Adeleke, confirmed that the 3-year-old died as a result of drowning.
The state police public relations officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, made this disclosure in a chat with newsmen.
Hundeyin also revealed that the two suspects arrested in connection with the incident are still in custody.
“The two suspects are still with us. Autopsy has been concluded. The autopsy confirmed that he (Ifeanyi) died by drowning,” he said.
Ifeanyi Adeleke died on Monday, October 31 after he drowned in a swimming pool in his father’s mansion in Banana Island, Lagos state.
It was earlier reported that the two suspects arrested in connection with the death of Davido and his fiancée, Chioma Rowland’s son, Ifeanyi Adeleke, may face charges for negligence.
They might also be charged for negligence because they were directly in charge of Ifeanyi’s welfare while his parents were away.
A credible source said,
“The cook and the nanny were the ones directly with the child, so, they are guilty of negligence until the autopsy is conducted. During investigation, we have suspects, and depending on the case, the suspects may or may not be released.
So far, the family has not objected to the autopsy, but how fast it will be done depends on the hospital. But the next move is to review the CCTV at the house.”
