Story highlights
  • Police didn’t say when the Agege-bred singer would make his first court appearance.

Singer Small Doctor is in serious trouble. That is if he is found guilty of illegally possessing a firearm.

Lagos police have arrested the singer and three other accomplices for allegedly threatening to shoot a police officer.

Police also claim the singer will be prosecuted for a similar incident late November when he fired pellets that injured four after a show at the Agege Stadium.

According to Section 3 of Nigeria’s firearm act, which prohibits the possession or control of firearms, any person(s) found guilty shall be “liable to a minimum sentence of ten years”.

Section 4 of the same act, which restricts the possession or control of personal firearms, as well as Section 9 which restricts the possession or control of ammunition in respect of certain firearms, also states that anyone found guilty of violation is liable to serve jail term “not exceeding five years.”

Small Doctor who has had relative success in the music industry since he burst onto the scene a few years ago will need to defend the allegations in court.
