The command’s spokesperson, Benjamin Hundeyin, who confirmed this to newsmen, said,

“Domestic staff at Davido’a home have been taken to the station to give their own account of what happened. I wouldn’t call that arrest yet. If after they all give their own account of what happened and after preliminary investigations, if anyone of them is found culpable, the person will now be placed under arrest”.

In an updated development, a source revealed that following serious interrogation, six of the domestic staff have been released while the chef and the nanny have been detained.

“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 mins until a security guard spotted him in the pool.” The source said.

Davido’s son with his fiancée, Chioma, Ifeanyi died on Monday night, October 31st after he drowned in a swimming pool in the singer’s home.
