The Lagos State Police Command has detained two of the eight domestic workers of Nigerian singer David Adeleke aka Davido, invited for questioning over the death of his three-year-old son, Ifeanyi Adeleke.
The two domestic staff detained are Ifeanyi’s nanny and cook as police begin the autopsy plan.
Lagos State police spokesperson, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, said the cook and nanny, whose duty was to cater for the wellbeing of the little boy, have been detained after serious interrogation.
Ifeanyi reportedly drowned in a pool at the singer’s Banana Island residence on Monday.
It was reported that the nanny was with the toddler when the cook came to join them. The nanny was said to have moved away to receive a call, leaving him with the cook, who also said he had left the three-year-old with the nanny.
Ifeanyi was later spotted in the pool by a security guard 20 minutes later.
The deceased was Davido’s only son with his girlfriend, Chioma Rowland.
