Nigerian singer, Inetimi Odom, aka Timaya was last week accused of a hit-and-run incident, which led to the police inviting him.
Days after the accident, the victim, Osinubi Damilola, has broken her silence, stating her own side of the story.
According to Osinubi, the singer, after hitting her on March 2, ran away, “leaving me in my own pool of blood.”
In a lengthy post on her Instagram page, @olori_wesco, on Tuesday, she wrote: “Not only that he dragged me on the road where I sustained injuries on my face, my two knees, my right hand, all my acrylic nails forcefully pulled out before I knew it, he ran away leaving me in my own pool of blood.
“Then passerby rushed me to a nearby pharmacy where I managed to call my husband before I was later taken to Reedingtton Hospital where I received about 15 stitches on my face and other treatment was administered before I was later discharged later in the evening and was taken to General hospital for further treatment.”
The victim also accused Timaya of bullying her “as a woman” when she confronted him about hitting her car.
“How can you tell the whole world you didn’t notice you hit a car? I knocked on your side window to draw your attention only for you to bully me as a woman,” she wrote.
Osinubi fumed that the singer hasn’t reached out to personally apologise to her, adding that Timaya wasn’t feeling remorseful over the incident.
She added in the caption, “Timaya Inetimi @timayatimaya you are wicked and heartless. You painted your wicked act of hit and run with emotion.”
While noting that the singer wouldn’t have reacted if he wasn’t called out on social media, Osinubi said: “Your conscience will continue to judge you cause you intentionally hit me off with your green G wagon boasting that you are a celebrity.
“Your lawyer came and sympathised with me in the general hospital at about 10:30 pm and your lawyer said this is too much for someone to let it slide.
“The pains you inflicted on me by your recklessness and no respect for womanhood. The permanent scar you inflicted on me intentionally. All I want is justice as he isn’t feeling remorse because he should not go scot free to serve as a deterrent for others.”
The victim’s sister had raised an alarm about the accident on social media, while Timaya in his response, denied abandoning the victim.
