Tekno had some time last week conveyed half-naked 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.
After some other road users filmed the act and the videos emerged on social media, there was public outcry and calls for the state government to act.
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-naked girls at the Lekki area of Lagos. He is presently undergoing questioning at the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID), Panti.”
The police said such acts of public indecency is against the criminal code and if after investigation those involved are 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 Limited.
