Nigerian singer, songwriter and performer, Inetimi Timaya Odon, known as Timaya, was arrested by police after being accused of hit and run.
The singer was accused by an Instagram user identified as Osinubi Omowunmi, who admitted that the victim Timaya had suffered was his brother.
The suspect claimed that Timaya crashed into his brother’s car, and when confronted, he also ran into a victim and ran over – an incident that took place near Ikate in Lagos on Wednesday, March 2, 2022.
The accuser, via her Instagram page (@whyte_26) wrote:
THESE CELEBRITIES AND HOW THEY BEHAVE. TIMAYA NEARLY KILLED MY SISTER THIS MORNING. HE HIT HER WITH HIS CAR AND RUN AT IKATE FEW HOURS AGO.
HE HIT MY SISTER’S CAR AND SHE CAME DOWN TO ASK HIM TO LOOK AT WHAT HE DID. THIS HEARTLESS HUMAN WAS ASKING FOR NUMBER AND SHE TOLD HIM HE WOULD BLOCK HER. INSTEAD OF @TIMAYATIMAYA TO DO THE NEEDFUL, HE HIT MY SISTER WITH HIS CAR AND RAN AWAY.
Following the accusation, a video of men of the Nigeria Police Force arresting Timaya today, March 3, 2022, at his residence has surfaced online.
