Small Doctor Dragged To Court For Unlawful Possession Of Firearms
The Lagos State Police Command has arraigned musician Adekunle Temitope, aka Small Doctor, before an Ebute Meta Magistrate’s court for unlawful possession of firearms.
It is understood that the singer, who was paraded with three others at the Police command headquarters at Ikeja after he was arrested around Oshodi on Monday, was dragged to court on Tuesday.
The Punch quoted a source at the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Yaba as saying that the music star was arraigned at the Ebute Metta Magistrate court along with the other occupants in his car on Tuesday December 4, 2018.
He was alleged to have threatened to open fire on a Police officer before he was arrested.
The state Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi, said Small Doctor had, in the past, fired shots and injured four people.
He noted that the injured persons were admitted to a hospital and vowed that the artiste would be made to face the law.
Bear in mind that the singer had recently stirred a controversy after singing at an event of the All Progressives Congress.
He had sung one of his hit tracks, ‘Ye ma sun (stop sleeping), which many said was targeted at the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
But the singer’s manager denied the claim.
The Police Public Relations Officer, CSP Chike Oti, as of 2.30pm, said Small Doctor’s arraignment for unlawful possession of firearms and threatening violence was ongoing.
