Tagbo's Death: Davido's Boys Confess

  The other 3 suspects arrested in connection to the death of Tagbo Umeike, have confessed to abandoning him.

Recall, Tagbo, was abandoned at the General Hospital upon discovering he had died, an act they tried to hide until Caroline Danjuma, took to social media to call Davido out.

Davido was invited by the Lagos state police command but was released as according to a police source:

“Tagbo is an adult and was not forced to consume that quantity of alcohol that is dangerous to his health. He had nothing to do with his death, rather investigation revealed that he was even more concerned about the safety of the deceased while he was still alive”, the source stated, pointing to a dead end in efforts to bring charges against the music star over the controversial death of his friend.

Why we dumped Tagbo’s body

Meanwhile some of the suspects who were detained after interrogation at the Police State Criminal Investigation Department, Panti have told the police that they dumped Tagbo’s body and fled the hospital when the doctor on duty confirmed that he was dead for fear of being treated as suspects.

Some of the suspects who are in custody are Davido’s police security detail, Tunde Yussuf , as well as his friends Busari Idris and Agbeja Olaoye all of who completely exonerated Davido.

According to Yussuf, who is a spy policeman , he was posted to work for Davido as part of his security details. He said that on the day of the unfortunate incident, they had gone to a party with the pop star at a club known as Shasha Room where they met Tagbo already drunk.

After spending some time, they moved to Oniru beach where Fuji music star Wasiu Ayinde was to perform at a birthday party that night.

According to him, they expected Tagbo to go home since he was already drunk but was surprised that he followed them to that place too. Moments later, one of Davido’s boys informed them that Tagbo was not okay.

He said Davido then requested that they should take one of his Hilux vehicles and follow those taking Tagbo to the hospital. As soon as they got there, the boys who took Tagbo to the hospital rushed in to call the police. “He was still in the car when the doctor came out and checked him and then said that he is dead. Moments later, the boys came out and told me that it was time to get out of the hospital.”

The second suspect Olaoye who was in the car with Tagbo before he died told the police that he fled when the doctor confirmed him dead to avoid being treated as his killer.

According to him, Tagbo was at the party long before Davido arrived and there was so much free drinks. “He demanded for a drink known as tequila and probably to show that he can consume a lot and still stay sane, took several shots of the drink.

As at the time Davido wanted to leave the party for another one, Tagbo was already drunk and violent. Davido who was concerned about his plight offered to carry him in his car but was advised against it because he was drunk and misbehaving. They advised him to go home but he insisted that he was going to the beach party with them. He then joined their car which was part of the convoy . It was while they were there that he started screaming and gasping for breath.”

At that point, he said they contacted Davido through the boys who were around him and they were told that Davido asked that he should be taken to the hospital immediately. On their way, he also noticed that one of Davido’s security men followed them to the hospital.

Olaoye insists that Tagbo was still breathing when they arrived at the hospital. They ran into the hospital requesting that there was an emergency, unfortunately by the time the doctor arrived, Tagbo had died.

They were then asked to fill a from to enable the hospital prepare his death certificate. They were able to get his international passport to get his correct name and age.

“The doctor then said that people in-charge of such case were coming and that we should wait and meet them before the corpse can be kept in the mortuary.”

Olaoye knew that they were referring to the police, so they all decided to run away from the hospital. They quickly jumped into the Hillux driven by Davido’s security detail and left the hospital. They also tried calling Davido to let him know the outcome of their trip to the hospital but his phones were switched off. Everyone of them retired to their various houses with the hope that by the next day they would help trace Tagbo’s family members.

Insisting that they are all innocent , Olaoye told the police that they ran away that night because in Nigeria, “even if it is clear that you had nothing to do with the death of someone, as long as you were at the scene, they will lock you up and accuse you of murder.”

Busari Idris who was also in the car on the day of the unfortunate incident also confirmed Olaoye’s statement. He said that they only knew his details from the international passport found in his wallet.

According to him, Tagbo was gasping for breath and screaming that his stomach was burning. He said they had no choice but to rush him to the hospital, adding that he was still breathing when they got to the hospital but lost him before the doctor could come to check him that night which was around 3am the next day.

“When the doctor said that we have to wait for the police, we knew the implication, that was why we fled the scene.”

What Davido told the police

In a short statement at the police station , Davido said he knew Tagbo just like the other boys hanging around him. According to him, he was invited to attend the birthday party of a friend whom he identified as Adelewe. At about 8pm on October 2, he left his house to attend the birthday party at Shasha Room in Lekki.

He was seated at another table with other friends while Tagbo and several others were behind them drinking and making noise. He only observed that Tagbo was consumming so much Tequila while the boys with him on the table were cheering him.

An hour later, he said he stood up and moved down to his car. He was heading to G12 at Oniru beach to attend another event, where Wasiu Ayinde was to perform.

He stated that almost all his boys and fans followed him to the car park including Tagbo who was drunk and unstable.

According to him, he was worried and tried to persuade him to enter his car but because he was misbehaving his security details and personal assistants advised that he should not take him in his car but rather he would enter another car in his convoy.

He left the club and attended the party at Oniru beach. An hour later , he moved to another club on the Island known as DNA for another event before retiring home for the day in the early hours of October 3.

Davido told the police, that he never heard anything from him again till he was informed by his personal assistant that Tagbo had died.

Other suspects face charges

At the time of filling this report, there were indications that the police may file charges against the other three suspects being held in custody. It was also confirmed that the police may have come to a dead end in their initial plan to draw charges against Davido as well because the music star was exonerated by the statements given by all the suspects.

Orozco and Gallos lost everything in Harvey, including their home and treasured belongings.
Orozco said she found her original gown at Kleinfeld during a trip to New York City six months before the hurricane hit. "I knew that I lost a lot of things, but that was definitely the thing that hit me the hardest because that was super special for me," Orozco said of losing her dress in the storm. Gallos said, "We had a lot of displacement, but everyone was safe. Our family's safe and the most important thing is we can restart with the wedding that she deserves."

American Lady weds man she met at the club not knowing he is an African Prince

Sure you saw The movie "Coming To America" No! This is not a movie, it happened.
33-year-old Ariana Austin, has walked down the aisle with Joel Makonnen an Ethiopian prince she met at a Washington DC nightclub 12 years ago.
He approached her on an outing with a friend. Joel, who works as a lawyer, told her there and then that she was going to be his girlfriend.
According to report...
Though he never told her then that he was a Prince, however after they got serious with their relationship, Joel told Ariana who he married in a lavish Ethiopian Orthodox Christian wedding with 13 priests, two crowns, and a pair of capes on 9 September, that he was a Prince.
Prince Joel who was born in Rome to his parents Prince David Makonnen and Princess Adey Imru Makonnen, and is the great-grandson of Haile Selassie I, Ethiopia’s last emperor. Haile Selassie was the 225th and last in the line of King of the Kings of Ethiopia, ruling the east African country for 40 years until he was overthrown in 1974. The royal family traces its roots back to the Biblical King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba.
The marriage ceremony of Joel who had been forced to live in exile after a communist coup in his homeland, took place in Maryland and involved a “marathon day of events that lasted from 11 a.m. until late in the evening, and took place within two states.”
Speaking to The New York Times about their first encounter, Joe said: “I said: ‘You guys look like an ad for Bombay Sapphire’. Not even five minutes later I said: ‘You’re going to be my girlfriend’.”
Joel’s father had escaped the bloodshed in his homeland because he was studying abroad at the time. The family subsequently settled in Switzerland. More photos below;


Why “I Don’t Have Friends In Nollywood” – Rachel Oniga

Veteran actor, Rachael Oniga, has shared why she is hardly seen at events or parties with her colleagues – in a chat with Goldmyne TV, The talented Nollywood actress says she doesn’t have enemies or friends in the movie industry despite being around for a while.
She stated,
“I have no enemies and I have no friends in the industry. Do you always see me in parties or events? I also tell younger actors who are close to me to avoid keeping enemies and friends. Whenever you are at the location of a movie project, give it your best and go to your house. There is no point getting too comfortable with other actors.”

According to her, she has a few friends she occasionally goes out with but certainly not her colleagues.
“I don’t party with my colleagues. When you do that always, you are gradually inviting problems for yourself, as people are always looking for opportunities to bring others down. In most cases, they will give you the impression that they are your friends and wish you well, but they will later stab you at the back when you least expected it. I’ve experienced things in my life so I have decided to stay away from some gatherings,” she further added.

In case you missed it: Ex Satanist, Founder of church of Lucifer converts to Christianity

The founder of a satanic church in Texas has converted from satanism to Christianity.
Jacob McKelvy, formerly known as Jacob No, was instrumental in bringing together a group of "Luciferians" to form a Luciferian church.
But on February 5, 2017, McKelvy and his wife renounced their ties with the Luciferian church, after becoming born-again Christians.
"...(W)e were once covered in darkness and bound to each other in Luciferian covenant," McKelvy said during a service at Spring First Church in Houston.
"We were mired in the shadows of the adversarial influence and knew no love outside of each other. Today I rebuke, denounce and break the satanic covenant by the blood of Jesus."
McKelvy and his wife were both baptized at the end of the service.
In an exclusive interview with CBN News, McKelvy shared how he became involved with satanism.
He said he turned to the religion after his sister died of a snakebite.
"I was born and raised Mormon and so I understood what Jesus Christ was and what God was and if they took my sister away I was going to go to the dark side. There was a lot of hopelessness and feeling of powerlessness that drew me to this. When Luciferianism says that you are your own God, that's pretty powerful," he explained.
McKelvy's story is one of grace, love, and deliverance.
On October 30, 2015, the Greater Church of Lucifer, founded by McKelvy, opened its doors to the public in Houston.
"It was a quest for power, McKelvy said.
"I wasn't expecting the Greater Church of Lucifer to be as big as it was. It originally started in my garage."
CBN News reported the story about the church's opening in 2015.
Some Christians in the area protested against the church, but Pastor Robert Hogan of Spring First Church encouraged his church to pray instead of protest.
"I'm not going to be down there picketing," Hogan told his church from the pulpit. "And could I tell you something: would you not go down there picketing? If you want to picket it, picket it on your knees," he said.
Parts of the sermon and McKelvy's testimony were posted on a YouTube video.
Hogan said he was hopeful that good would come out of the negative situation.
"I just believe that God could break a revival out at that church," he said.
Then in August of 2016, McKelvy walked into Spring First Church and asked to meet with Pastor Hogan.
It was a meeting that lasted four hours, after which McKelvy surrendered his life to Jesus Christ.
McKelvy explained what it was like meeting Pastor Hogan.
"I have to say Robert's probably one of the best men I've ever met in my life. He's the real deal," he said.
Today McKelvy hopes that his story will inspire others to follow God and live life for Christ.
"No matter how far away from God you think you are. There is always a way home," he said.
"I had this burning sensation to go in that church, so I did. Robert wasn't there that day but he called me back. We talked on the phone two hours and then we set an interview for August 11th and we talked for 4 hours that day and I ended up giving my life over to Christ."
McKelvy now speaks in churches to prove the power of prayer and the love of God.
"The power and peace and wholeness I feel today is far greater than anything that I've ever felt before," he said.
"I created a church to destroy dogmatic religion and he still loved me. So if he could still love me for me to be here today talking to you than there are no excuses anymore."
Pastor Hogan said he is working very closely with McKelvy to make sure that he has a solid foundation and that he becomes rooted and grounded in the word of God.
Meanwhile, the Greater Church of Lucifer has closed its doors.

Grieving widower visiting his dead wife one last time in hospital ‘finds nurse having sex with corpse’

A man in mourning allegedly caught a male nurse having sex with his dead wife’s corpse as he visited one last time in hospital.
The nurse was beaten by the grief-stricken partner before being handed over to police in the Bolivian capital La Paz.
He was named locally last night as Grover Macuchapi, 27.
He is now facing prosecution on charges of profaning a corpse and obscene acts.
Police chief Douglas Uzquiano said the incident happened around an hour after the patient died at Hospital de Clinicas in La Paz on Monday and was transferred to a hospital morgue.
He said: “Relatives of the dead woman had gone to the hospital to cancel a debt they had for the medical treatment she received.
“The husband went to the morgue and saw a male nurse having sex with his late wife.”
The unnamed husband told a local newspaper: “I saw what he was doing and hit him. He was moving and he had his trousers down.”
The hospital worker blamed his actions on a trance.
He was quoted as saying: “Something happened. It was like a dream. The next thing I remember was feeling a blow from behind when the woman’s husband hit me.”
The unnamed female patient, a 28-year-old, had only died around an hour before she was targeted.
Prosecutors said Macuchapi could not be charged with necrophilia because the offence didn’t exist under Peruvian law.
Last May police in Argentina arrested a man who broke into a hospital morgue to have sex with a dead woman.
The 22-year-old drifter told cops he acted out of an “insatiable desire to have sex in the hospital”.
Staff dialled 999 after seeing the pervert had taken a body out of one of the freezers and was standing over his victim with his pants round his ankles.
He was still acting out his sick fantasy when the police arrived and made no attempt to resist arrest.
The bizarre incident happened at San Vicente de Paul Hospital in Oran, north-west Argentina.
The woman he targeted was a 41-year-old from a village 70 miles away whose sudden death was due to be investigated in an autopsy later that morning.
He slipped into the hospital after getting past a security guard who was answering the call of nature.
Local reports said police found cash in a rucksack he was carrying which patients and their families leave the hospital when they are discharged.

“When You Die, You’ll Be Aware That You’re Dead” – Scientists Reveal That People’s Minds Work After Death.

New scientific research reveals that dead people continue to be conscious even after they have been declared dead by medics.
Some report having seen light at the end of a tunnel, while others claim to have floated above their body, watching as medics save their lives.
But the reality of near-death experiences has always been debated.
Now scientists have discovered that a person’s consciousness continues to work after the body has stopped showing signs of life – meaning they have awareness of their own death.
And there is evidence to suggest someone who has died may even hear their own death being announced by medics.
The findings echo the plot line of the new Hollywood re-make of 90s cult horror Flatliners, starring Ellen Page.
In the film a group of young doctors embark on a dangerous experiment by taking turns to chemically induce their heart to stop and flatline to find out exactly what happens in the afterlife.
A team from New York University Langone School of Medicine investigated the very same question through twin studies in Europe and the US of people who have suffered cardiac arrest and ‘come back’ to life, in the largest study of its kind.
Study author Dr Sam Parnia told Live Science: ‘They’ll describe watching doctors and nurses working and they’ll describe having awareness of full conversations, of visual things that were going on, that would otherwise not be known to them.’
He said these recollections were then verified by medical and nursing staff who reported their patients, who were technically dead, could remember details of what they were saying.
Death of brain cells can take hours.
Medically speaking, doctors define death based on when the heart no longer beats, which then immediately cuts off blood supply to the brain.
‘Technically, that’s how you get the time of death – it’s all based on the moment when the heart stops,’ explained Dr Sam Parnia.
‘Once that happens, blood no longer circulates to the brain, which means brain function halts almost instantaneously.
‘You lose all your brain stem reflexes – your gag reflex, your pupil reflex, all that is gone.’
The brain’s cerebral cortex – which is responsible for thinking and processing information from the five senses – also instantly flatlines, says Dr Parnia. This means that within 2 to 20 seconds, no brainwaves will be detected on an electric monitor.
This sparks a chain reaction of cellular processes that will result in the death of brain cells. However, this can take hours after the heart has stopped, he explained.
And performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) that hasn’t successfully revived a patient can still result in sending some blood to the brain – about 15 percent of what it requires to function normally.
But brain cell death is still happening, just at a slightly slower rate, he said.

wow! Buhari approves payment of pension to Biafra war veterans

The veterans were dismissed from service for their participation in the war which lasted between 1967 and 1970.
In a statement on Wednesday, the Pensions Transition Arrangement Directorate (PTAD) announced that payment will commence on Friday, October 20, in Enugu state.
“The general public would recall that Nigeria witnessed an ugly civil war between July 1967 and January 1970 and as a result of that unfortunate period in our history, some members of the armed forces, the Nigeria police and the paramilitary officers who took part with the secessionist were dismissed from the service,” the statement read.

“The dismissal of those officers was commuted to retirement in year 2000 through a presidential amnesty granted on 29th May, 2000 by the administration of the then President Olusegun Obasanjo, GCFR.
“A verification exercise was conducted for the pardoned officers by the defunct Police Pension Office and recently PTAD on one hand and the Police Service Commission on the other.
“Despite the presidential pardon and verification of these officers many of them remained unpaid years after the pardon. However, the present administration under the able leadership of president, C-in-C of the armed forces, Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR, has graciously given approval for the payment of pension entitlements to these officers and their next of kin.
“PTAD is commencing the payment of pension benefits to the retired war affected police officers on Friday 20th October, 2017 in Enugu. 162 officers will be payrolled and 57 Next of Kin who have also not been paid their death benefits will be paid in the first batch.”
The development comes at a time when critics have accused Buhari of marginalising the south-east.
