The Lagos State Police Command has arrested an Afro pop artiste, Adekunle Temitope, aka Small Doctor and three others for illegal possession of arms.
It was gathered that the four were arrested around Oshodi Lagos on Monday for threatening to shoot a traffic policeman.
Confirming the arrest, the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Imohimi Edgal, said that the musician had earlier been arrested last week in Agege area of the state for shooting and injuring four people.
He said, “ You would have thought the incident would have taught him some lessons, instead the musician went to Oshodi to threaten a policeman. Today I got a situation report from traffic monitors at Oshodi expressway alleging that four unknown gunmen in green unregistered SUV brought out a weapon and threatened to shoot the policemen.
“Fortunately, the DPO and other policemen at Shogunle intercepted the suspects and arrested them. “When they were brought here it was discovered that one of them was the same Adekunle Temitope aka Small Doctor with three others and they were arrested with a functional rifle, a cartridge and some personal items.”
