Nigerian singer Adekunle Temitope better known as Small Doctor has been apprehended by the police for possession of arms.
The arrest was made by the Lagos State Police Command. The news of his arrest was contained in a press release by the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi.
Small Doctor was apprehended by the police along three other men after he allegedly threatened to shoot a Police officer on traffic duty along Oshodi.
“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,” Imohimi said.
“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.”
The “Penalty” singer singer will be charged to court for prosecution.
