With so many reports having come to light since the passing of Tagbo to
include Caroline Danuma’s with Stella Dimokorkus, a family member of the
deceased, Damilola Usman, has given his own side of the story a bit
similar to Craoline’s.
family is not ready to give out information now but once they are, we
would contact you because the case is still at the police station and
the investigation is still on-going. However, what happened was that we
went to a joint together called the Shisha Room. In the Shisha Room, we
had a competition of Tequila shot. Each person had to take 10 shots of
Tequila and after the competition, Tagbo passed out. Nobody took him to
the hospital because everybody was high already. We did not know that it
was something serious.
“I learnt they went to the beach later
and I think he passed out at the beach again. His friends that
accompanied him to the beach did not attend to him on time but
eventually when they suspected that there was something wrong, they
allegedly dropped him in front of the hospital with his car.,” he said.
Caroline, who spoke to SDK claimed there was a bet of N200, 000 attached to taking 50 shots of tequila.
that there was a bet of N200, 000 and that Tagbo drank about 50 shots
of tequila but I said that cannot be true. Tagbo cannot drink even a
glass of Hennessey because he had a light brain like me. So a guy who
couldn’t drink this much couldn’t finish 50 shots of tequila. Tagbo did
not need N200, 000 to do that. He came from a very wealthy background so
he didn’t need that kind of bet; he was not hungry for that. I was
shattered to hear such news.
“Meanwhile, someone who rented my
bar told me he was with Davido at Shisha Bar on Monday and then I asked
him randomly, “Oh then, you must know Tagbo”. The guy confirmed that he
met Tagbo and that was when he knew they were birthday mates and he
also said they had fun and went from there to DNA to party on Lagos
“I contacted another person who (allegedly) remembered
seeing Davido and Tagbo. According to what the person said, Tagbo drank
the tequila and got intoxicated,” she said.
