Toyin Abraham Denies Arresting X User’s Mother


Actress Toyin Abraham has debunked claims that she arrested the mother of a Twitter user.


This comes after the user had taken to the social media platform to call out the filmmaker.


Reacting, Abraham said she only made a report at the cybercrime unit due to threats to her life and family. 


According to her, the user’s friend, Ayo was arrested for alleged bullying and defamation.


Abraham emphasised that she did not arrest the user’s mother, contrary to the claims made. 


She also clarified that she deleted related tweets after the issue was resolved.


The Twitter user had claimed that his mother was picked up from her shop to Panti police station but Abraham maintained that she did not initiate any arrests.


This development comes amid growing concerns about online bullying and harassment.


The incident has sparked a wider conversation about the boundaries of free speech and the need for responsible social media usage.


An X user Danny wrote: “Hello @toyin_abraham1, you will have to send the police to pick all of us. You are very shameless”.


Replying to him, Toyin stated that he can abuse all and call her names, and it would be okay but where she draws the line is when people curse her kids and lie.


“You can abuse and call me names; it’s fine, and as I said, I will accept and take it cos I’m in the public eyes, but cursing kids and lying is what I won’t accept, and lastly, I never and will never arrest anyone’s mother. I made a report on cybercrime as a citizen. I made my report at cybercrime cos the threat to life and curse and threat on my family were beyond what I can take, as for me, abuse me, insult me please, say anything to me please,” she responded. 


The X user, Jeffery further alleged the movie star picked up her mom from her shop.


“It’s one thing to make a tweet, and you arrest me. It’s another thing to arrest me for not even making a single comment, @toyin_abraham1. You picked my mom up from her shop to Panti police station for something I didn’t even do. God will judge you,” he tweeted. 


Toyin replied: “Lying on my head comfortably now, the world won’t see this if I react how, they will say something else. I never arrested your mum. Your friend Ayo was arrested for bullying and cursing and defaming my family, and mum went there saying she won’t leave without him”.


Another tweep, Uchenna, questioned why the movie star deleted some of her tweets to which she replied was no need to beat around the bush.
