The Lagos State Police Command has reportedly arrested a hip-hop artiste, Inetimi Timaya Odon, also known as Timaya.
Timaya was arrested hours after he was accused by a lady simply identified as Omowunmi of injuring a lady with his car at the Ikate area of Lagos on Wednesday.
Omowunmi identified the victim as her sister.
Omowunmi alleged that the singer hit her sister’s car and when he was confronted, he also hit the victim.
She wrote on her Instagram page, @whyte_26, “These celebrities and how they behave. Timaya nearly killed my sister this morning. He hit her with his car and run at Ikate a 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.
“She is at the hospital right now in serious pain and the funniest part is that I messaged him on Instagram to do the needful, but this wicked fellow blocked me after reading my message.”
Confirming Timaya’s arrest in a tacit response on Thursday, the police spokesperson in the state, CSP Adekunle Ajisebutu, said, “He is being investigated for a case of serious motor accident.”
According to Pulse Nigeria, policemen stormed the residence of the Dancehall musician on Thursday morning and whisked him away.
