Sources say he was arrested shortly after his discharge from the hospital. According to the sources, due to the severe impact of the accident, the police could not arrest him immediately after the accident until doctors gave clearance that he was fit to be discharged.

His arrest is connected to a recent car accident that tragically resulted in the death of a three-year-old boy. The police have been in constant touch with the family of the deceased 3-year-old boy.

On 25th May, Lil Win was involved in a car accident just hours before the much-anticipated premiere of his movie "A Country Called Ghana" in Kumasi.


He and other victims were immediately rushed to the hospital for medical attention. While Lil Win was recovering from his injuries, a recent report revealed the tragic death of a young victim involved in the crash.

The young child passed away after Lil Win's car collided with the one transporting him and his father who was also severely injured. A relative of the deceased child confirmed the news during a live radio interview with Angel FM on Monday, 27th May.

According to the relative, the boy was in the front seat with his father when the accident occurred. The child died at the hospital on Saturday, while his father was still receiving medical care.

The accident happened on Saturday morning in the Amakom area of Kumasi, Ashanti region.


According to eyewitnesses, Lil Win was driving at high speed from the Amakom intersection towards the WAEC area when he suddenly veered into the opposite lane.

His vehicle collided head-on with a private family car carrying a father and his four-year-old child. Lil Win and his two passengers also sustained head injuries, and both vehicles were significantly damaged.

The tragic head-on collision sparked outrage and demands for accountability. The family of the deceased has also expressed outrage over Lil Win’s posture and his management’s insensitive treatment following the accident.
