According to the Nigerian Police, attempts are being made to determine what exactly happened to Ifeanyi Adeleke, the son of hip-pop star Davido and his girlfriend, Chioma Rowland, before he passed away.
Benjamin Hundeyin, the Lagos State Police Command spokesperson, promised that every CCTV detected in Davido’s home would be examined by the security company.
“CCTV will be reviewed if we locate any installed at his house,” said Hundeyin.
Ifeanyi Adeleke, the three-year-old son of Nigerian musician, Davido and his girlfriend Chioma Rowland was found dead the night of October 31, 2022 in the singer’s Banana Island home. He was said to have drowned in the swimming poll. His parents are reported to have been out of town when the sad event occurred.
Eight domestic staff were arrested over the child’s death. The police have released six of them and narrowed down their investigation to the nanny and the chef.
Along with Hundeyin’s suggestion, Edward Ajogun, a former police commissioner in Ogun state, suggested that closed-circuit television (CCTV) could be able to shed more light on the circumstances surrounding Ifeanyi’s death.
Ajogun added that it is anticipated that the singer’s Banana Island home will be equipped with cutting-edge technology that could assist the authorities in determining what caused the three-year-old boy’s death.
“Given Davido’s nature, one might presume that all of these security devices are already in place,” he said. All these security measures will undoubtedly be installed by someone who resides on Banana Island.
In a sense, CCTV functions as a third eye; it is a surveillance technique. It was designed with the intention of helping in crime detection and prevention.
“Crime detection technology, where crime has occurred, the CCTV will help in giving an insight into how that particular crime transpired and making it easier to identify who committed that crime.”
