Eight persons employed as domestic workers at singer Davido’s Banana Island residence are being interrogated by the police over the death of his three-year-old son, Ifeanyi David Junior Adeleke.
The toddler was said to have drowned in the family’s swimming pool on Monday night while his parents, David and Chioma were on a trip to Ibadan for a family function.
It was gathered that he was rushed to Evercare Hospital in Lekki where he was pronounced death on arrival.
Although the circumstances surrounding Ifeanyi’s presence at the pool section at that time of the day was yet unknown, Nigerians have wondered why his minders never felt his absence as he was said to have been in the pool for a long time before drowning.
Already, public outrage has followed news of the toddler’s death especially because his parents only celebrated his third birthday few days ago.
