Last year’s BBA co-winner, Wendall Parson has been arrested in connection with false car insurance claims.
Parson won the 6th season of the Big Brother Africa show with Nigeria’s Karen Igho.
He got into trouble with the law after he had an accident with his car two months ago.
According to reports, Parson insured his Ford Ranger car with Alliance Insurance Company on March 18, 2013, two days after he crashed the same car. He then allegedly lodged a false insurance claim of $25,000 for the same car.
The insurance company got suspicious and after an investigation they reportedly discovered that Parson had crashed the car before insuring it with them.
On Friday he was taken into police custody for the fraud and reports say he would be charged to court soon.
