Davido’s lawyer, Mr. Bobo F. Ajudua, said that Davido was released by the police and was acquitted of murder allegations levelled against him.

“We’ve been to Panti and my client has given a statement there too. It’s clear from all the investigation, evidence, and statements given so far that David was not at any point with the deceased after he left him alive at Shisha room and as such he’s been released to go about his business.”

“Of course if called on to give any more information he would gladly. But in truth, he only knew so much about the night and has reproduced this time and time again. They’ve also observed the consistency between his statements and those of all the others interviewed, as a result he’s been allowed to go,” he said.

Naija News had reported that Davido, upon wrong accusations levelled against him and rumours circulated on the social media, said he has forgiven all the people pointing accusing finger at him.
