Popular musician, Augustine Kelechi, aka Tekno was arrested Tuesday by elements of the Lagos State Police command, ostensibly for breaching public decency by displaying half-naked girls in traffic, the police spokesman, deputy superintendent of police, 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,” Elkana said.

Tekno was invited for questioning and then arrested and was undergoing questioning at the state Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID), Panti, Yaba. He reportedly was not accompanied by his lawyer

 

Last week, the popular singer took part in a mobile advertisers.com.ng that displayed half nude girls, who were dancing seductively in a transparent glass box on a truck around the Lekki-Ikoyi Link Bridge.

Inside the transparent glass truck, Tekno was seen spraying the scantily dressed girls with money as they danced frantically.

 

Many Nigerians, especially women rights and advocacy groups saw the ad as indecorous and demeaning and objectifying women.

 

Following the public outcry, the Lagos state government reacted swiftly; condemning the indecent incident and the police opened an investigation and invited Tekno for questioning.

 

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 laws.

 

But the police said such acts of public indecency was against the criminal code and if after investigation those involved were found guilty, they would be charged to court.

 

Already, the Lagos State Signage and Advertisement Agency has suspended the advertising firm, Pro-Vision Media Systems Ltd.
