Bayelsa state-born singer, Timaya Inetimi, has been arrested for a hit-and-run involving a young woman.
A video seen by TheCornet shows the singer wearing a white jalabiya dress and being led away by plain clothes policemen.
The policemen appeared to have paid Timaya an early morning visit.
Prior to the singer’s arrest, an Instagram user, Osinubi Omowunmi, had called him out over the accident that took place at Ikate area of Lagos State.
Omowunmi 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.
“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.”
To back up her claims, she further shared screenshots of her chat with Timaya.
