Fresh facts have emerged on how star actress, Caroline Danjuma’s lover died. Autopsy report has revealed that alcohol was a substantial factor in the death of 35-year-old Tagbo Umeike, a friend of Nigerian pop star, Davido.
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 a man’s system, in Tagbo Umeike.’ 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.
According to a statement by the coroner’s office: “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.”
