Owner of Club Uno, Mike ‘Pretty Mike’ Nwogu, has finally opened up on his chaining of women in public.
Photos had constantly surfaced of the socialite with an umbrella and holding 2 leashed women in public, and Pretty Mike says he was misunderstood.
He was arrested on Thursday on the orders of the Lagos state government, and signed an undertaking to desist from the act.
“I, Mike Eze Nwalie, aka Pretty Mike, of 21A Luma Street, Magodo GRA, do hereby undertake to stop whatever act of putting girls on leashes or any other degrading treatment to ladies and guys,” the undertaking read.
“I am aware that such act offends the law of Lagos State and if I repeat it, there will be legal action towards me.”
“I undertake to issue a letter of apology to the public effective from tomorrow (Thursday) on all my social media platforms.”
Following his release, he took to his Instagram that his actions were simply misinterpreted.
He wrote: “There has been a lot of controversy over two of my outings holding some females on a leash. I apologise to all the women and the good people of Lagos State, Nigeria and the rest of the world, who feel dehumanised by this craft that meant well. I will use other platforms and formats to continue to create the necessary awareness.”
Awareness for what exactly, Uncle Mike? What are you creating awareness for that requires you chain women?
