Popular Nigerian music video director, Clarence Peters has been detained by the Lagos State Police Command for questioning over the sudden death of video vixen and choreographer Love Divine, popularly known as Kodak.
Speculations are rife that Kodak who passed away on Wednesday, April 29, 2020 reportedly died from electrocution at Peters’ residence.
The spokesperson of the Lagos State Police Command, Bala Elkana while speaking with newsmen, confirmed that Peters is still in police custody and is “being questioned, along with a few others”.
He further stated that the police are “investigating the circumstances around her [Kodak] death.
“It is a full investigation process. We are probably looking at murder. We are not concluding at this stage. If she died of electrocution according to reports, it is left for us to find out. Was she actually electrocuted? What went wrong? An autopsy will also show”, Bala said.
Peters was said to have been working on an isolated shot with Kodak shortly before her death and others present at his house that day have all been detained by the police for questioning.
Meanwhile, an eyewitness who pleaded anonymity had earlier said her (Kodak’s) phone doesn’t have a pouch and she was not putting on slippers when the incident occurred.
“She was sweating on her palms and was sitting on the floor. Where she sat was on the entrance and the door is a slide. You know the slide door is made of iron and her thigh was on it.
”The current passed through to her hands and went through her body then she tried throwing the phone. That was when we noticed the phone fell on her chest and burnt her chest leaving on her skin the scale of a burnt pressing iron.
“At this point we had a faint sound from her and she was lying on her back.
”We thought she was making a selfie video all this while until we saw smoke from her chest. Immediately we called for help, they brought her out and we start blowing air for ventilation.
“She was rushed to a hospital within the neighbourhood where she was pronounced dead.” she said.
The Westsyde Lifestyle signee before her death had worked with top musicians including the likes of Olamide, Burna Boy and Wizkid.
