The police in Lagos according to a report sighted on Atinkanews have arrested Nigerian hip-hop musician, Augustine Kelechi, popularly known as Tekno in connection to his involvement within disrupting public decency in the state.

Police said that as at the time of his arrest, Tekno was carrying half-nak£d girls in traffic; an act which is a breach of public decency.

Tekno had some time last week conveyed half-clad girls, who were dancing seductively, in a transparent glass box on a truck around the Lekki – Ikoyi Link Bridge.

In the truck, the musician was seen spraying the scantily dressed girls with money as they danced.

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.

His arrest followed public outcry the scene generated just as the state government reacted swiftly and condemned the incident.

Confirming the arrest, the state Police spokesman, Bala Elkana, a deputy superintendent of police, said he was invited for questioning.

He said: “The command has arrested Tekno and the two girls for conveying half-nak#d girls at the Lekki area of Lagos.

“He is presently undergoing questioning at the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID), Panti.

It was further gathered that the police submitted that Tekno’s display is against the criminal code and if all parties involved were found guilty, they would be charged to court.

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