A few days ago, Nigerian musician – Augustine Kelechi, a.k.a. Tekno was spotted with some semi-unclad ladies in a transparent glass box on a truck. The musician was seen spraying the scantily dressed girls with money as they danced seductively.
Although Tekno had offered a public apology after the video went viral, reports making the rounds claim the Nigerian Police has invited the singer to its headquarters in Lagos for breaching public decency by conveying dancing semi-unclad ladies in Lekki.
According to reports, Tekno was arrested in the early hours of Tuesday, 6th of August, 2019 and conveyed to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID), Panti, Yaba where he was interrogated for several hours before he was granted administrative bail on health grounds.
Confirming the news, the Lagos State Police spokesman, Bala Elkana, said such acts of public indecency are against the criminal code and if after investigation those involved are found guilty, they would be charged to court.;
The command has arrested Tekno and two girls for conveying half naked girls at the Lekki area of Lagos.
He is presently undergoing questioning at the state Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID), Panti.
The act of displaying nudity in public spaces contravene Section 136 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015 that any person who commits any act of gross indecency with another person in public commits an offence and liable to a conviction to three years imprisonment in Nigeria.
The video clip, which had gone viral on social media, was said to be part of a scene from Tekno’s unreleased video, titled Agege, featuring musician, Zlatan Ibile.
