The news of the death of two of Davido’s friends, DJ Olu and Chime, recently spread across the internet. The death of the two friends of the singer and Tagbo’s death made it three deaths of Davido’s friends in recent times. Fingers have been pointed at Davido for being involved in the death of Tagbo especially, while the circumstances surrounding the death of the other two remained largely speculative.
Recent report has however linked the death of the two friends of the singer, DJ Olu and Chime to the abuse of hard drugs. According to the report, the Lagos State Police Command has recovered substances suspected to be hard drugs from a car in which the two friends of Davido died.
The deceased, Olugbenga Abiodun, aka DJ Olu, and Chime Amaechi, said to be a crew member of the ace artiste, were found dead on Saturday in a BMW car in a garage on Block B, Banana Island, Lagos. A source, who confided in PunchNG, said operatives from the Ikoyi Police Division received a distress call that two young men were lying lifeless in a car.
“A team raced to the scene. On getting there, the lifeless bodies of two adult males were found in a BMW car, with number plate, KJA 631 AY, at the underground garage of Block B, Banana Island.
After making some enquiries, the victims were identified as Olugbenga Abiodun, 25. He lived on Block 11 of the estate. The other victim, Chime Amaechi, was also aged 25,” the source said.
Another source said the duo vomited blood from the noses and mouths, adding that a preliminary physical examination suggested that they died of drug overdose. She said, “They were found dead in the car and blood was coming out of their noses and mouths.
A doctor was also at the scene. Physical examination of the bodies indicated that the victims must have died of an overdose of substances suspected to be hard drugs. The substances were found in the car.”
It was reported that the corpses had been transported to the Lagos State Teaching Hospital morgue to run tests and examinations to help ascertain the cause of the deaths.
The Lagos State Acting Commissioner of Police, Edgar Imohimi, confirmed the deaths and said, “Autopsies would be carried out to know the cause of death. There were no marks of violence on their bodies.”
