A family friend of the Umeike’s, Usman Damilola, has revealed that late Tagbo passed out after 10 shots of tequila.
As the mystery of the Tagbo’s death saga unravels, new details have been brought to light, which is quite similar to Caroline Danjuma’s side of the story.
The family friend, Usman, who spoke to Saturday Beats from the Umeike’s family house said;
“Tagbo’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.
Recall that Caroline who spoke earlier in an interview with SDK claimed there was a bet of N200, 000 attached to taking 50 shots of tequila.
She said, “I decided to call my neighbour who was also Tagbo’s friend and he said 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 Island.
“I contacted another person who (allegedly) remembered seeing Davido and Tagbo. According to what the person said, Tagbo drank the tequila and got intoxicated.”
