Ifeanyi’s nanny and the chef at Davido’s Banana Island residence have not taken full responsibility for the death of the 3-year-old Ifeanyi Adeleke.
According to Nigeria’s Linda Ikeji, the nanny was with Ifeanyi when the chef came, the nanny walked a little bit away from them to answer a phone. Ifeanyi wasn’t there when she got back, so she figured he was with the Chef. The Chef, however, claimed that he had left Ifeanyi with her. After spending nearly 20 minutes frantically scouring the entire property for him, a security guard later discovered Ifeanyi in the pool.
A spokesperson for the Lagos State Police Command, SP Benjamin Hundeyin says eight of Davido’s domestic staff members were taken in for interrogation about the drowning of Ifeanyi Adekele, according to Benjamin Hundeyin,
