Musician, ‘Small Doctor’, Three Others Arrested For Possession Of Firearms

Operatives of the Lagos State Police Command have arrested a popular hip -hop artiste , Adekunle Temitope, popularly known as ‘ Small Doctor’ , for alleged possession of firearms and indiscriminate shooting .

Three others , who were allegedly involved in the crime were also apprehended .
The Lagos State Police Commissioner , Edgal Imohimi , while briefing journalists on Monday , said Adekunle , who was being investigated for allegedly firing indiscriminately after a show at Agege on Tuesday , November 27 , also threatened to shoot a traffic police officer , who was on duty in the Oshodi area of Lagos State.
Imohimi said , “ It was alleged that four unknown men , in an unregistered green SUV , had brought out a gun and threatened a policeman that if he did not leave the road , they would shoot him.

“ Believing that they were armed robbers , I sent out my men and fortunately the men , with the Divisional Police Officer in charge of Shogunle Division , were able to intercept the vehicle and the suspects were arrested and 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 . ”

Imohimi , who expressed disappointment at the musician ’ s conduct , said Adekunle had a case with the State Criminal Investigative and Intelligence Department , Panti , for shooting indiscriminately at his Agege show where four persons were injured .

He said , “ Adekunle Temitope, a . k . a . ‘ Small Doctor’ , was arrested and taken to the State Criminal Intelligence and Investigative Department for questioning . He was alleged to have fired a gun ; the pellets from the gun injured four people , who were rushed to the hospital .

“ You would have thought that the incident would serve as a caution to him , but surprisingly today , I got a situation report from traffic monitors at the Oshodi area about four unknown gunmen in an unregistered green SUV .

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

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

Imohimi , who said he had directed that the case be properly investigated , added that the suspects would be charged to court for threatening violence on policemen and being in possession of firearms
