The Lagos State Police Command has revealed that substances suspected to be hard drugs may have caused the death of Davido’s friend DJ Olu.
Police intelligence said they recovered the substances from the vehicle the entertainer reportedly died in.
Olugbenga Abiodun popularly, known as DJ Olu, is the son of businessman Dapo Abiodun.
The entertainer and one Chime Amaechi, said to be Davido’s crew member, were found dead on Saturday. They were in a BMW car at a garage on Block B, Banana Island Lagos.
Their death occurred at a time when the ace singer was being called out for the death of another friend of his Tagbo Umeike.
Punch reports that operatives from Ikoyi Police Division received a distress call that two young men were lying lifeless in a car.
It was gathered that the corpses have been deposited in the Lagos State Teaching Hospital morgue for post-mortem.
A policewoman told the newspaper: “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.”
Lagos State Acting Commissioner of Police, Edgar Imohimi, who also confirmed the incident, said the police recovered substances suspected to be drugs from the victims.
Imohimi, however, said the police would take the substances to a laboratory for test.
