The long awaited result of the autopsy carried out on 35-year-old Tagbo Umeike, the friend of Davido and lover of actress Caroline Danjuma, has been released and according to the result, Tagbo died from the consumption of too much alcohol (this was evident in the videos showing his last moments, watch here and here).
The result also showed that he had alcohol and drugs in his system capable of easing a person into the early stages of hypothermia and eventual death. The toxicology tests detected alcohol (Bacardi 151, 75.5% Alcohol) and topiramate, a medication for epilepsy and/or migraines in Tagbo Umeike system’.
Tagbo’s blood-alcohol concentration (BAC) was at 0.112, higher than the 0.08 legal limit for normal human being state.
The coroner’s office stated.
While his family claims that Tagbo doesn’t take alcohol and “didn’t have a prescription for any type of topiramate medication”, the autopsy office stated that the amount of drug in Tagbos’ system was in the “therapeutic range.”
A statement by the coroner’s office read: Alcohol and topiramate are synergistic. When combined, the effect of either or both drugs is enhanced. Topiramate, like alcohol, can cause dizziness, impaired memory, impaired concentration, poor coordination, confusion and impaired judgment. Central nervous system depression, or impairment, combined with cold exposure can hasten the onset of hypothermia and death.
