Police arrest Small Doctor for illegal possession of firearm

Nigerian musician, Small Doctor whose real name is Adekunle Temitope has been arrested by the police along with three others for alleged unlawful possession of a firearm.

Imohimin Edgal, who happens to be the Commissioner of police in Lagos, said the suspects were arrested after threatening to shoot policemen controlling traffic at the Oshodi area of Lagos.

According to the Commissioner of police in Lagos, the musician has a pre-existing case with the state criminal investigation department, Panti for allegedly shooting a gun at his Agege show where four persons were injured.

The commissioner said: “You would have thought the incident would caution him but surprisingly today, I got a situation report from traffic monitors at the Oshodi expressway about four unknown gunmen in green unregistered SUV.

“He (Small Doctor) allegedly brought out a weapon and threatened to fire the policemen. Fortunately, the DPO and other policemen at Shogunle intercepted the suspects and arrested them.

“When they were brought here it was discovered that one of them was the same Adekunle Temitope a.k.a Small Doctor with three others and they were arrested with a functional rifle, a cartridge and some personal items.

“I am concerned as one will expect that a popular musician like him would be a role model but his character of gangsterism is nothing to emulate.”

The commissioner urged celebrities to stop involving themselves in gangsterism.

He said: “You will recall that the inspector-general of police, Ibrahim Idris, gave a window period for submission of all firearms as all licenses had been cancelled and all approvals suspended.

“I have directed that the case be properly investigated and they will be charged for threatening violence on policemen and being in possession of firearm.”
