Davido’s crew member imprisoned for beating airport staff

On January 11th, 2018 upon arrival from Dubai on an Emirates flight, one of Davido’s crew member, Kayode Umarudeen assaulted check-port security at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport arrival for doing their job.

He proceeded to harass and molest a female Aviation Security Officer at FAAN and caused an Assistant Comptroller of Customs at Tango City to be injured.

All attempts by Davido to get his boy” freed was rebuffed, Kayode spent a night in detention and was charged for assault on a federal officer before a Magistrate in Ogba, Ikeja.

Kayode will also be spending the weekends in prison as his bail conditions were not perfected until the close of work on Friday.

According to Sahara Reporters, the police arraigned Kayode on a 5 count charge at the Ikeja Magistrate court, before Mrs. E. Kubanje.

He was granted bail conditions to the tune of N50, 000 and two sureties in like sum.

The sureties must have variable addresses within the jurisdiction of the court.

The magistrate had also left the court as Mr. Umarudeen’s relatives were trying to perfect the bail conditions.

Sahara Reporters saw him being conveyed with the prison van out of the court premises a few minutes after 4 pm. Mr. Umarudeen was charged for assault, breach of public peace and for resisting arrest.

Crisis broke out when a Checkpoint staff at the airport attempted to verify some of the checked luggage with the attached tags, but, rather than allow the staff to carry out his official duty, Kayode refused, and it led to fisticuffs.

Kayode punched the Checkpoint staff on the face, which attracted other security officials at the terminal who immediately attempted to arrest the aide.

Rather than obey, he resisted arrest and pummeled another airport security staff, an Assistant Customs Comptroller was also injured.

Davido has not yet reacted to this and was at the SoundCity MVP Awards 2018 last night where he copped 3 awards
