Nigerian music star, Timaya Inetimi, popularly called Timaya, has allegedly been arrested hours after he was accused of causing grievous bodily pain to a woman in an apparent hit and run accident.

Osinubi Omowumi, an Instagram user, who claimed to be the sister of the victim, accused the music star on Wednesday, 2nd March 2022, of hitting her sister with his car after she challenged him for damaging her car.

On her Instagram story, she wrote:

In viral videos which emerged today, Thursday 3rd March 2022, men of the Nigeria Police Force were seen to have stormed the residence of the music star, carting him away.
In another video, the singer was seen explaining things to the policemen, while making gestures to the car parked outside the building. The reason and terms of the arrest of the music star have, however, not been made public, though the arrest has been made a day after the hit and run accusation.
