Popular musician, Augustine Kelechi, aka Tekno and his video producer, Lawal Tijani, are presently in the custody of State Criminal Investigation Department, Panti, Lagos, over the controversial Lekki half-naked strippers dancing van.
They were reportedly invited by the Lagos State Police Command over the indecent act showing four half-naked strippers dancing seductively with Tekno in a display van in traffic around the Lekki-Ikoyi link bridge last Friday night.
The video clip, which had since gone viral on social media, was said to be part of a scene from Tekno’s unreleased video, titled Agege, featuring musician, Zlatan Ibile.
It was also learnt that the owner of the display truck was also taken in for questioning by the police.
A top source said, “It is true. Tekno, Tijani and the owner of the truck were invited and they are currently in Panti. They are not under arrest at the moment.”
When asked if the four strippers were also in custody, the source said, “The girls have not been reachable on the telephone but when we can contact them, they will be invited.”
The act is said to be in contravention of Section 136 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015 which provides that any person who commits any act of gross indecency with another person in public commits an offence and liable on conviction to three years imprisonment.
Section 134(a) further stipulates that an indecent act in a public place makes both parties engaging in the act liable to imprisonment for two years.
The Lagos State Signage and Advertisement Agency had last week suspended the licence of the firm that reportedly owns the van for promoting indecent acts.
However, the firm, Pro-Vision Media System Limited, noted that it had sold the vehicle since last year and could not bear any liability.
