The Lagos State Police Command has acknowledged the petition from Nigerian singer and songwriter, Tiwa Savage, who alleged that she was bullied and threatened by her colleague, David Adeleke, also known as Davido.
According to the Punch Newspaper, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, disclosed on Tuesday that the police had started looking into the matter.
“I can confirm to you that we have received the petition and investigation has commenced,” said the police PRO.
Savage, in the petition that is making rounds, claimed that the Grammy nominee said rude things to her after seeing a post that had her and the his Baby mama, Sophia Momodu’s Instagram story.
The singer said she was hurt by Davido’s words and reminded him of how she supported his family, especially when he lost his son, Ifeanyi. Tiwa also said she later got calls from people they both knew asking her what she did to make Davido angry and what was going on between her and Sophia.
Tiwa’s petition partly read: ““I am writing to bring to your attention a distressing situation involving myself, and Adeleke.
“On Dec. 23, I made a post which included myself and Sophia Momodu’s Instagram Story- a feature on Instagram which allows you to put up a post for twenty-four hours, and Adeleke sent messages to my manager who’s also part of his management team that I shouldn’t worry and should never say a word to him and that I was taunting him, uttering very đisrespectful, malicious and derogatory words to my person.
“I responded to Mr David Adeleke’s message and told him not to reach out to me, especially as I feel like I have been there for him and his daughter, Imade, and more importantly when he lost his son.
“The actions of Mr David Adeleke are unethical and can be viewed as a direct threat to my rights to life, privacy and dignity of my person as guaranteed in Chapter 4 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 (as amended),
“And are also in contravention of Section 24(2)(a) of the Cybercrime (Prohibition, Prevention, Etc.) Act, 2015. I, therefore, would like to make this complaint, and to state that in the event that anything untoward or harmful were to happen to me or any member of my family, I will like the members of the Nigerian Police Force to hold Mr David Adeleje responsible.
“I am available to answer any questions or provide any additional information regarding this matter.”
