The Lagos State Police Command has arrested super star musician, Augustine Kelechi, popularly known as Tekno, for breaching public decency and conveying half naked women in an open van.
According to THISDAY, Tekno was arrested on Tuesday and he is currently undergoing questioning at the state Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID), Panti, Yaba.
In the truck, which the clad girls are being conveyed, the musician was seen spraying them with money as they danced.
Tekno last week conveyed half clad girls, who were dancing seductively, in a transparent glass box on a truck around the Lekki-Ikoyi Link Bridge at night.
Confirming the arrest, the state Police Spokesman, Bala Elkana, a deputy superintendent of police, said he was invited for questioning.
Following the public condemnation it generated, the state government reacted swiftly and condemned the move.
In his defence, Tekno posted on his Instagram page saying he merely used the truck to convey his crew to a location for a shoot, which was not intended to breach public decency.
He said: “The command has arrested Tekno and the 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 police said such acts of public indecency is against the criminal code and if after investigation those involved are found guilty, they would be charged to court.
Moreover, the Lagos State Signage and Advertisement Agency has suspended the advertising firm, Pro-Vision Media Systems Limited.
