In a chat with Adesope Shopsydoo, the media personality, Timz said the incident occurred in Mushin, Lagos.
The singer said the assassins targeted his family’s car and opened fire. He said the gunshot aimed at his dad’s head ended up hitting his eye.
“I got shot when I was nine, in the nose and it affected this eye,” he said.
“They were assassins, they didn’t even stop the car, they just shot the bunnet and started spraying,
“It wasn’t a robbery and they were looking for an Igbo family. When they heard my mum say e je kin ko awon omo mi, they were surprised.
“It was me, my mum, my dad and my immediate older brother, it was just four of us in the car in Lagos, Mushin to be precise.

“They just overtook us and started shooting, they didn’t even tell us to stop and I got shot in the eye because they were targeting my dad’s head and it went straight into my eye.”
When asked about the state of his injured eye, the singer said his eye is currently fine, although he is preparing for another operation.
“The eye is alright, I’m supposed to do another operation soon,” he said.
