Alleged Indecent Advert: Tekno Arrested

Nigerian Music star Augustine Kelechi, alias Tekno, was on Tuesday arrested by operatives of the Lagos State Police Command for allegedly breaching public decency with an outdoor advertising displaying semi-nude women.

He was quizzed for several hours at the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID), Panti, Yaba.

Tekno came under fire last week after a mobile advertisement displayed half-naked girls dancing seductively in a transparent glass box on a truck while he sprayed money on them along the Lekki-Ikoyi Link Bridge.

Although the singer issued a public apology explaining that it was not an advert but a scene in a video he was currently shooting, the Lagos State Signage and Advertisement Agency (LASAA) suspended the advertising firm, Pro-Vision Media Systems Limited, whose van was used.
