Yesterday I was just driving past this road, the fuel scarcity stuff made the people block the road, so I was trying to just pass,” he said.

“And the next thing, I hit the lady’s car and I didn’t even know I did that. So, when she stopped my vehicle, I stopped and she was like I hit and said how? And the next thing, she said at the back.”

“So, I asked her ‘can I have your number madam? I will call you or can we get out of the road?’ Because we were blocking the road and the next thing I saw four guys running down, we try to move away as I saw the guys running down. That was how the woman held the side mirror of my car, so that is how she fell.

“It is not like I hit her and ran away, no! So that was what happened.”

Timaya also said he was not arrested, adding that the police only invited him for questioning.

“Them say they arrest me, how will they arrest me when I didn’t do anything wrong,” he added.

The singer also released an apology statement on Twitter.

“Sometimes you owe an apology 🙏🏽,” he wrote.
