It was gathered that Davido who had arrived the country through an Emirates flight around 5 pm, had 17 checked luggage, which the aides refused to allow the officials of the Checkport verify with the attached tags.

When he seemed uncontrollable, the security officials mobilized and forced the Davido’s crew member to a restricted area within the terminal known as “tango city.” Tango City is a place where touts and unruly persons are detained within the terminal before being transferred to a police station for further a possible interrogation and possible prosecution.

At Tango City, the aide allegedly continued his attacks on security officials by hitting a female AVSEC official who was taking notes of the incident in the tummy and later pushed another Customs personnel who landed awkwardly and cut his wrist in the industrial fan in the area.


  1. Fellow Nigerians this is not funny…we all think we can do anything in Nigeria or Africa and get away with it..that guy was even in the US Army. He probably knows you can not beat up a police officer in the western world and you will still have a stable life,that is practically impossible…so he should face the full wrath of the law.

  2. And that doesn’t give him the right to beat up an officer some of these soldiers love to over do I will soon join them since they are now like politicians
