A popular hip hop musician Adekunle Temitope and three others have been arrested by the police in Lagos for unlawful possession of fireman.
According to the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi, the suspects were arrested at Oshodi area of Lagos after threatening to shoot down traffic policemen.
Imohimi added that he was disappointed with the musician’s conduct because he had a case with the SCIID, Panti for shooting a gun at his Agege show where he injured four persons.
“You would have thought the incident would warn him against such actions but surprisingly today, I got a situation report from traffic monitors at Oshodi expressway alleging that four unknown gunmen in green unregistered SUV.
“He brought out a weapon and threatened to fire the policemen. Fortunately the DPO and other policemen at Shogunle intercepted the suspects and arrested them.
“When they were brought here it was discovered that one of them was the same Adekunle Temitope aka Small Doctor with three others and they were arrested with a functional rifle, a cartridge and some personal items.
“I am concerned as one will expect that a popular musician like him would be a role model but his character of gangsterism is nothing to emulate.” he said.
The CP further urged artists to stop involving themselves in issues of gangsterism and conflicts that do not portray them well.
“You will recall that the Inspector General of Police, I-G Ibrahim Idris have a window period for submission of all firearms as all licences had been cancelled and all approvals suspended.
“I have directed that the case be properly investigated and they will be charged for threatening violence on policemen and being in possession of forearm.” he said.
