The Police Command in Lagos said it has begun investigation into a petition by Nigerian singer and songwriter, Tiwa Savage, over alleged bullying and threat to her life by Grammy nominee, David Adeleke, also known as Davido.

Mr. Benjamin Hundeyin, a Superintendent of Police (SP) and spokesperson for the Command, stated this on Wednesday.

“I can confirm that we received the petition. We have begun investigation,” he said.

Savage had in a petition dated January 9, addressed to the Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, Mr Adegoke Fayoade, accused Davido of uttering disrespectful words in reaction to a post which included herself and the singer’s Baby mama, Sophia Momodu’s Instagram story.

The singer explained how she expressed disappointment at Davido’s threats and reminded him of how she stood by his family, especially when he lost his son.
