The Lagos State Police Command says 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 in a chat with The Punch on Saturday.
Hundeyin said, “Autopsy has been concluded. It confirms the boy (Ifeanyi) drowned.”
The PUNCH had reported 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.
This newspaper further gathered that 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.
