Fast-rising Nigerian singer, Olorunyomi Oloruntimilehin, popularly known as Bad Boy Timz, has recounted how “assassins” shot him in the eye when he was nine.
In an interview with British-Nigerian media personality, Shopsydoo, Bad Boy Timz narrated how the gunmen, who ambushed a car conveying his family in the Mushin area of Lagos, started shooting sporadically and one of the bullets hit him in the eye.
He said: “I got shot in my eye when I was nine years old. They were assassins, they didn’t even stop the car, they just shot the bullets. It was not a robbery.
“Me, my mom, my dad, and my immediate elder brother. It was four of us in the car. The incident happened in Lagos, Mushin to be precise. They just overtook us and started shooting. They were targeting my dad’s head, he dodged and the bullet went straight into my eye.”
Timz, who said the assailants were never apprehended, disclosed that he will be undergoing another eye surgery soon.
