The Lagos State Police Command has arrested popular Nigerian singer, Adekunle Temitope a.k.a Small Doctor, with three others for alleged illegal possession of a firearm.
According to the State Police boss, CP Edgal Imohimi, the suspects were arrested after they had threatened to shoot traffic policemen.
“It was alleged that some unknown men, four of them, in an unregistered green SUV had brought out a gun and threatened a policeman that if he does not leave the road, they will shoot him,” Imohimi said.
“Believing that they were armed robbers, I sent out my men and fortunately, with the DPO in charge of Shogunle division, they were able to intercept them and the men were arrested and were brought down to the headquarters for interrogation.
“It was then discovered that one of them is the same Adekunle Temitope, a.k.a. ‘Small Doctor’. They were arrested in possession of a functional rifle, cartridge and some of their personal belongings.”
The Commissioner also added that he was disappointed with the musician’s conduct, knowing he had a case with the SCIID, Panti for shooting at his show in Agege, where he allegedly injured four persons.
“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.”
The Commissioner went on to advice celebrities to stop involving themselves in issues of gangsterism and conflicts that do not portray them well.
