Popular Nigerian Musician, Tekno Augustine Kelechi has been arrested by officers of the Lagos State Police command for displaying half-naked girls in traffic.
Tekno was arrested on Tuesday and was undergoing questioning at the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID), Panti, Yaba.
It will be recalled that last week, Tekno made headlines after he partook in a mobile advertisement that displayed half nude girls, who were dancing seductively in a transparent glass box on a truck around the Lekki-Ikoyi Link Bridge. In the truck, the musician was seen spraying the scantily dressed girls with money as they danced.
Following the public outcry it generated, the state government reacted swiftly suspended condemned the indecent incident.
In his defence, Tekno said he merely used the truck to convey his crew to a location for a shoot, which was not intended to breach public decency.
Speaking on the development, PRO of the Lagos state police command, Bala Elkana 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.”
