I don't think that he would lie intentionally, but I'm not sure that his
knowledge is entirely reliable on that point, and he's not a theologian.
What he *observed* was that the dy Jironals and the demon went
"elsewhere".  He *believed* that Dondo and the death demon had partly
merged, and inferred from that that Dondo's soul would have been dragged
along to wherever the death demon ended up.

Umegat -- and we -- never did find out if the death demon was singular,
i.e. if no other death magic was successful while the demon was trapped
within Cazaril.
