The Lagos State Police Command on Saturday said the autopsy conducted on the corpse of Ifeanyi Adeleke, son of Davido and his fiancée, Chioma Rowland, revealed that he died as a result of drowning.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, confirmed the development.
Hundeyin said, “Autopsy has been concluded. It confirms the boy (Ifeanyi) drowned.”
There were indications that the police might conduct an autopsy to determine whether Ifeanyi died as a result of drowning in a swimming pool at his father’s residence in the Banana Island area of Lagos State.
Out of the eight domestic workers interrogated by the police in connection with Ifeanyi’s death, the cook and nanny, whose job was to cater for the wellbeing of the three-year-old boy, had been detained for reasons including the failure to uphold the duty of care of the minor.
As of the time of filing this report, the nanny and cook were said to still be in detention.
