Autopsy confirms Ifeanyi Adeleke drowned

The Lagos State Police Command says the autopsy conducted on the corpse of Ifeanyi Adeleke Jnr, son of David ”Davido” Adeleke, revealed that he died as a result of drowning.

The state Police PRO, Benjamin Hundeyin, confirmed the development to the Punch on Saturday, November 5, 2022.

He said; “Autopsy has been concluded. It confirms the boy (Ifeanyi) drowned.”

The police also said two of the singer’s domestic staff arrested in connection with the tragic incident are still being quizzed.

It was gathered that the cook and nanny, whose job was to cater for the wellbeing of the three-year-old boy, are the ones still being detained for reasons including the failure to uphold the duty of care of the minor.

“The two suspects are still with us. Autopsy has been concluded. The autopsy confirmed that he (Ifeanyi) died by drowning,” Hundeyin told Channels TV.

On whether the two principal suspects will be charged in court, the police spokesman said, “I don’t want to preempt that. Investigation is still ongoing.”

The police spokesman also debunked reports that Nollywood actress Eniola Badmus was arrested over the matter.

Meanwhile, a source earlier told Punch; “Though the family members are not saying anything yet because they are still in shock but until anybody says stop, the standard procedure is to conduct an autopsy and we are going to follow that procedure just like in any case of death”.
