Superstar singer Small Doctor was on Monday arrested by police in Lagos on charges of illegal firearms possession.
The incident happened along the Oshodi Expressway.
Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi, on Monday, revealed this while parading the musician along with three other suspects.
Imohimi said, “It was alleged that some unknown men, four of them, in an unregistered green SUV had brought out a gun and threatened a policeman that if he does not leave the road, they will shoot him.
“Believing that they were armed robbers, I sent out my men and fortunately, with the DPO in charge of Shogunle division, they were able to intercept them and the men were arrested and were 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.”
Edgal said that he was disappointed with the musician’s conduct because he had a case with the State CID, Panti for shooting a gun at his Agege show where he injured four persons.
The CP further urged celebrities to stop involving themselves in issues of gangsterism and conflicts that do not portray their image positively.
