The Lagos Police Command has released Nigerian singer and songwriter, Timaya Inetimi, popularly known as Timaya hours after he was arrested.
Naija News earlier reported that the singer was arrested on Thursday morning by security operatives of the Lagos police command for allegedly hitting a lady around Ikate Lekki, Lagos, on Wednesday, March 2, 2022.
Timaya was reported to have absconded after noticing what he did, and all efforts from the victim’s sister to reach him proved abortive as he also went ahead to block them on Instagram.
According to Osinubi Omowumi, via Instagram, the music star rammed his car into her sister after she challenged him for damaging her car.
Omowumi further went on to accuse the music star of causing severe injuries to her sister.
She alleged all effort to reach the singer to do the ‘needful’ proved abortive, as he went on to block her on all platforms.
In an Instagram live video on Thursday afternoon, Timaya stated that he was released after the police investigated the matter and found that he was not guilty of the allegation.
Timaya explained that he did not hit the lady and ran away, saying that he mistakenly hit her car and she grabbed the side mirror, which led her to fall and injuries.
The singer added that he is back at his house after he was released and is ready to pay for the medical bills and damages done to the lady’s car.
