Davido’s nanny and cook may face charges for negligence over Ifeanyi’s death

The two suspects may stay in police detention until an autopsy report clears them, according to recent information that has come to our attention.

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.


9jadailyupdates.com earlier reported that eight domestic staff present at the time of the drowning incident were invited for questioning after which six were released while Davido’s cook and nanny were detained.

New information reaching us is that the two suspects may remain in police custody until they are cleared by an autopsy report.

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


While confirming the detention of the cook and nanny, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, the spokesperson for the Lagos State Police Command, declined to provide any other information regarding the current investigation.
