Davido’s son’s nanny, cook detained, others freed as police move to conduct autopsy



The Lagos State Police Command might conduct an autopsy to determine whether the death of Ifeanyi Adeleke, son pop star Davido and his fiancée Chioma Rowland was as a result of drowning in a swimming pool.

The nanny and cook are still being held over the tragic incident at Davido’s home in the Banana Island region of Lagos State, but six domestic staff members have also been released.

The two domestic workers have been detained, according to state police spokesperson Benjamin Hundeyin, who said: “I spoke with the DPO and he said the nanny and the cook have been detained. Other domestic workers brought in for questioning were released.”

It is standard procedure for the police to perform an autopsy in such a case, a source who also confirmed the development told PUNCH. The source added that the police would stop the procedure if the deceased’s family objected, though.

The source said, “It was the work of the nanny to take care of the child (Ifeanyi); the nanny was negligent or how could the boy have left the house without her knowledge? The boy left the house, walked to the back where the swimming pool is situated and fell into the swimming pool. Nobody noticed until much later. At that point in time, he had drowned and was at the bottom of the swimming pool.

“So, they brought him out and rushed him to the Lagoon Hospital, where the doctors tried unsuccessfully to revive him. They left the hospital and rushed the boy to Evercare Hospital, where he was declared dead. They have deposited his corpse in the mortuary for an autopsy to reveal the cause of death. All the domestic workers at home when the incident happened have been questioned by the police but only the nanny and cook were detained.”

Ifeanyi died on Monday, October 31, eleven days after celebrating his third birthday.
