Tiwa Savage arrested for assaulting police officer
Mavin’s first lady, Tiwa Savage was arrested on Saturday for allegedly assaulting a police officer. The MTN ambassador was said to have been involved in a traffic violation at the front of the Eko Hotel and Suites when she was stopped by a police officer on duty also in front of the hotel.
The singer engaged the police officer in an argument, and during the process she is said to have become angry and flung the hat from the head of the officer.
A police source said, “Tiwa Savage refused to stop at a traffic light around Adetokunbo Ademola Street near Eko Hotel and Suites. When we attempted to accost her, she refused to park her car as instructed by the policemen.
“Since there was a traffic snarl at the time, a policeman followed her car and insisted that she must stop. After a while, she stopped and started raining abuses on all of us so, we took her to the station.
“On getting to the station, a senior officer advised her to apologise because she was wrong and there were even eyewitnesses at the scene who could testify against her if the matter was taken to court. She apologised and was released immediately.”
