Tiwa Savage, a renowned Nigerian singer, has confirmed that there was a security breach at her residence, which was widely reported online as a kidnap attempt. The talented musician took to her Instagram handle to make the revelation via a statement that was signed by her management team.
In the statement, the management team confirmed that there was a major security breach at Tiwa Savage’s residence on Thursday, April 13, 2023. They also disclosed that a number of suspects have been apprehended and are currently being held under investigation at Alagbon Police Station in Ikoyi.
The good news, however, is that Tiwa Savage and her family are safe and well. The statement further stated that the singer and her family have been unharmed by the security breach, and are grateful for the outpouring of love and concern from her fans and well-wishers.
According to several media outlets who published the report earlier, self-acclaimed investigative journalist, Kemi Olunloyo, alleged that Tiwa Savage’s new driver provided information about her movement to his co-conspirators, which led to the security breach. However, it is important to note that these claims have not been independently verified, and may be subject to investigation by the relevant authorities.
Kidnap attempts and security breaches are not uncommon in Nigeria, where the rich and famous are often targeted by criminals looking for a quick ransom payout. However, it is heartening to know that Tiwa Savage and her family are safe and that the suspects have been apprehended. This incident serves as a reminder of the importance of adequate security measures for public figures and their families in Nigeria.
