Tiwa Salvage arrested for assaulting a police officer



Mavin Records artiste, Tiwa Savage, has been quizzed by the
police for allegedly humiliating a policeman who apprehended
her for violating some provisions of the Lagos state traffic laws.
Savage often referred to as Mavin First Lady, was said to
have engaged a policeman who flagged her down for flouting
traffic rules in front of Eko Hotels and Suites Victoria Island,
on Saturday.
Savage who was recently signed a brand ambassador deal with
Forte, allegedly came down from the vehicle she was riding in
and confronted the policeman on duty who arrested her.
During the ensuing argument with the cop, Savage who was
infuriated by the development was said to have angrily removed
the cap of the policeman in a bid to get back at him.
The first African female PEPSI ambassador was reportedly
whisked away to the Victoria Island Police Division, for
daring to humiliate and assault the policeman.
When contacted, Group publicist for Mavin Records, Terfa
Tilley-Gyado, confirmed the incident to our correspondent on
the telephone.
He said the records label will be issuing a comprehensive
statement stating the position of Tiwa Savage and the group on
“What would you like to know? We are planning to prepare an
official statement; definitely not at this time. The press release
will be out on Monday for your Tuesday production.
“I don’t think it will be prudent to use the story until you have
the official statement. That is just my own opinion. I think you
should wait until you get the official statement,” he said.
Public Relations Officer, Lagos State Police Command, Ngozi
Braide, could not be reached for comments. Her telephone rang
out when contacted while a text message sent to her was not
replied to as at press time.
