The Lagos Police force has reacted to the viral claims of arresting actress Eniola Badmus over the death of Ifeanyi Adeleke, son of afrobeats star Davido.
This is coming after rumors about Eniola Badmus’s arrest started speculating in the early hours of Saturday.
Several blogs claimed that the actress called Ifeanyi’s nanny on phone to distract her from noticing the boy had left the room for the swimming pool.
Reacting to the claims, police spokesperson Benjamin Hundeyin told BBC Pidgin that Eniola was not arrested.
“THE STORY IS FALSE, NOTHING LIKE THAT HAPPENED,” HUNDEYIN SAID.
Eniola Badmus was one of the first celebrities that announced the death of Ifeanyi in a cryptic message. Kemi Filani recalls that Davido’s son, Ifeanyi died by drowning on Monday, October 31, eleven days after celebrating his third birthday.
