This is trouble for popular musician, Small Doctor, (Adekunle Temitope) as Operatives of the Lagos State Police Command have apprehended him for allegedly possessing firearms and shooting indiscriminately.
Speaking on the arrest, the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi, disclosed that; “Adekunle is being investigated for allegedly firing indiscriminately after a show at Agege on Tuesday, November 27, 2018.”
“It was alleged that four unknown men, in an unregistered green SUV, had brought out a gun and threatened a policeman that if he did not leave the road, they would shoot him.”
“Believing that they were armed robbers, I sent out my men and fortunately the men, with the Divisional Police Officer in charge of Shogunle Division, were able to intercept the vehicle and the suspects were arrested and 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.”
“Adekunle Temitope, a.k.a. ‘Small Doctor’, was arrested and taken to the State Criminal Intelligence and Investigative Department for questioning. He was alleged to have fired a gun; the pellets from the gun injured four people, who were rushed to the hospital.”
“You would have thought that the incident would serve as a caution to him, but surprisingly today, I got a situation report from traffic monitors at the Oshodi area about four unknown gunmen in an unregistered green SUV.”
“He (Small Doctor) allegedly brought out a weapon and threatened to fire at the policemen. Fortunately, the DPO and other policemen at Shogunle intercepted the suspects and arrested them.
“I am concerned, as one will expect that a popular musician like him will be a role model, but his gangster character is nothing to emulate.”
Imohimi, who said he had directed that the case be properly investigated, added that the suspects would be charged to court for threatening violence on policemen and being in possession of firearms.
