SWITZERLAND, AUGUST 7 – Nigerian hip hop musician, Augustine Miles Kelechi known as Tekno has reportedly been arrested and is currently at the Lagos state police command where he is being questioned by the state police CID for dancing with half-naked ladies in a transparent truck in the Lekki area of the state.
Recall that videos of the singer dancing in a truck with the Unclad girls sparked an outrage after it surfaced online. The Lagos State government had reacted swiftly to the development, condemning the display and suspending the licence of the advertising company whose truck was allegedly used for the display.
Tekno later apologised publicly to Nigerians, explaining that it was for a new music video shoot. It was gathered that another artiste, Zlatan Ibile is also involved in the video.
In a chat with newsmen on Tuesday, the Lagos state police command spokesperson, Bala Elkana, said Tekno arrived their office for questioning this morning.
”Tekno has been invited by the State CID in respect of those strip dancers in the truck in a public place dancing Unclad. So he is invited for questionning. He is in our office at the moment” Bala said
When asked if he will be charged to court, Bala said he does not know for now as the command is still investigating the matter.
The act of displaying nudity in public spaces contravenes Section 136 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015 which provides 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.
