After rumours emerged last night concerning the demise of Ifeanyi David Adeleke, son of Afrobeats icon, Davido, and girlfriend Chioma; the Lagos State Police Command has now, sadly, confirmed the tragedy, like we feared earlier.

Hundeyin admitted that the police invited eight people for questioning after the youngling’s death. He added that anyone found culpable of the child’s death after a thorough investigation would be arrested.

“It is true, the child is dead. About eight people were brought in for questioning and we are investigating the matter. Anyone found culpable in the death of the child would be arrested,” Hundeyin said.

Multiple reports on Monday alleged that Ifeanyi drowned in a pool at Davido’s house in Banana Island, Lagos State. The 3-year-old was rushed to a nearby hospital after the incident but was reportedly pronounced dead on arrival.

Social media has been raining goodwill messages and tributes to the family of the bereaved. Singer Paul Play Dairo said: “I’m really lost for words. This is really painful. Take heart, David.”

Actor Williams Uchemba wrote on Instagram: “I said I won’t believe anything on social media until I personally confirm myself. I prayed for it to be a lie. I am upset, pained and confused. Nobody deserves to feel this pain.

“Please say a prayer for David, Chioma and the entire family. Nobody deserves this kind of pain. Rest up little one.”

Nigerian actor Muyiwa Ademola wrote: “It is one of the saddest thing when kids are being buried by parents. We really wish it never happened! May The Almighty gives the parents and the entire Adeleke family the strength to bear this loss.

Actress Iyabo Ojo, said: “I don’t even know how to react to this rude shock. I was hoping it wasn’t true. My God!!! This is so shocking, sad, devastating and extremely painful Olorun!!! Ikun le abiamo.”

Our prayers are with Davido and his family. May God grant them the fortitude to bear this huge loss.
