The Lagos State Police Command has arrested and paraded Nigerian singer, Adekunle Temitope, popularly known as Small Doctor, for unlawful possession of firearms and for allegedly threatening to shoot a police officer on traffic duty along Oshodi in Lagos.
Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Edgar Imohimi confirmed his arrest and paraded the musician along with three others. He said “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. 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.”
He added that Small Doctor had earlier been involved in a similar offence and is currently under investigation for firing live ammunition at the Agege stadium after a show on November 27.
He added that: “Adekunle Temitope, also known as Small Doctor, was arrested and taken to the state CID for questioning. He was alleged to have fired a gun; the pellets from the gun injured four people who were rushed to the hospital.” ‘Small Doctor’ will be charged to court for prosecution.”
Small Doctor had discussed on many occasions the circumstances of his adolescence and early adulthood that saw him work as a bus conductor and commercial motorcyclist. However since his 2016 track Penalty became a hit, he assumed the persona of a bonafide celebrity and was among a contingent of entertainers who visited President Buhari at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.
