Nigerian singer Timaya questioned by police over an alleged hit and run

By Adelaide,

Famous Nigerian musician Timaya was arrested yesterday (3/03/2022) after a hit and run accident. According to BBC, police went to his home a day after a woman reportedly said on her Instagram account that her sister had been injured by him and was being treated in hospital.

“These celebrities and how they behave. Timaya nearly killed my sister this morning. He hit her with his car and run,” she posted.

“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.

Viral videos emerged yesterday showing the singer being carted away by the police while his fans reposted different videos saying he had just been asked to go make a statement by the officers.

He said that in the confusion after a woman said he had bumped into the back of her car, he suggested they park at the side of the road to stop blocking the traffic and swap numbers but when four men began aggressively approaching his vehicle, he drove off.

On his Twitter page, Timaya stated that he didn’t have bad intentions towards anybody.

Me no get no bad mind for nobody,” Timaya tweeted.
