A whole lot went down after Tiwa Savage’s husband Teebillz’ meltdown on Instagram, where he spilled quite a few scandalous details of his marriage and family issues. Read here if you missed.
While many of us wondered if his account had been hacked, it appears that the messages that he left on social media hinting at suicide was indeed true. According to one Chukwuma Ani, Teebillz did infact try to jump off the Lekki-Ikoyi bridge shortly after his posts on Instagram.
Below is how LIB reports it….
“According to an eye-witness named Chukwuma Ani, who witnessed the incident and was one of the men who pulled Teebillz off the bridge, he told LIB exclusively that around past 9 this morning while driving on the Lekki-Ikoyi toll bridge, a car hit his own from behind, damaging his car. He said he came out of the car and approached the driver of the vehicle that hit his. He didn’t know who the man was (it was Teebillz) but he said he berated him for hitting his car and asked the man to come out and assess the damage caused to his car. The man looked at him and told him to leave…that he was there for a reason. That he was planning to commit suicide and Chukwuma Ani would hear about it later…
Not knowing who the guy was or understanding why he was talking suicide, Mr Ani said he kept insisting that the driver must come down from his car and see the damage he had caused to his car. He said he noticed alcohol on the floor of the driver’s car so thought the man was drunk. He said while shouting and berating the driver for hitting his car, the guy just suddenly drove his car with speed to the front.
Ani said he got into his own car and gave chase and was surprised to see the driver of the car parking his car in the middle of the bridge as other cars drove past. He said he parked in front of the driver and approached the man again, telling him that he couldn’t even apologize for hitting his car and was instead trying to drive off. He said as he was berating the man, he (Teebillz) got down from his car and walked to the bridge railing.
He said he stood there wondering what the driver was trying to do and it was at that point that two other cars approached them. He said as he was trying to figure out who the new comers were, Teebillz had moved to the bridge railing and was trying to jump. Mr. Ani said a light skinned guy came out from the first car and began running towards Teebillz screaming and that was when he realized what was going on..
“I thought I was watching a movie” Ani told LIB “the man held the railing and tried to jump over it and that was when the yellow man held him and started shouting for help. The two of them nearly fell into the water. I quickly joined the yellow man to pull the guy out and while we were struggling with him, one PSquare twin (Peter Okoye) and Banky W joined us to pull the man out ” Ani said.”
According to her, she called Peter Okoye to confirm Anis account but he refused to comment saying: “Even if I was there, I can’t say anything about it”.
Thankfully, Teebillz is said to be surrounded by friends and family and is doing much better.
Meanwhile, while his wife Tiwa is yet to address this incidence, we saw a number of fans and celebrities react on social media one of which was his close friend singer, Banky W who reached out to him after reading one of his posts.
Comedian, Seyi Law and OAP N6 also tried to get through to Teebillz after his outburst on Instagram.
He later shared a post on Instagram…
Rapper Saucekid who has been flying below radar for a while now also lent his support to Billz.
Also, Annie Idibia’s manager Naomi Adenuga, jumped to Teebillz’ defense after internet trolls started with their insensitive comments.
While many speculate on the truths and fibs in Tunji’s outburst, that he’s deeply troubled remains obvious.
On that note guys, truth or perceived lies, let’s not be in a rush to write-off others reaching out in pain as you never know when a life is hanging in the balance!
