Hours after she allegedly assaulted a male traffic warden at the Victoria Island area of Lagos, the Lagos State Police Command today insisted that the female songbird and current Forte Oil Ambassador, Tiwa Savage, had made her apology in a written statement. The police was reacting to recent claims from some quarters that Savage had not assaulted the police officer, rather she was a victim of police brutality.
Savage had on Saturday allegedly beat traffic light at Victoria Island and when confronted by some traffic wardens, she was said to have sped off. Eyewitness account said the police gave chase and when they caught up with her at Eko Hotel and Suites premises, she was said to have assaulted the police officer, prompting them to arrest her.
