Tekno, producer in police custody over Lekki van strippers

Musician, Augustine Kelechi , popularly known as Tekno ; as well as his video producer , Lawal Tijani, are currently at the State Criminal Investigation Department , Panti , Lagos , facing questions from the police .
The two , it was learnt , were invited by the Lagos State Police Command for the indecent act showing four half -naked strippers dancing seductively with Tekno in a display van in traffic around the Lekki- Ikoyi link bridge last Friday night .
The video clip , which had gone viral on social media , was said to be part of a scene from Tekno ’ s unreleased video , titled Agege , featuring musician, Zlatan Ibile .
The PUNCH was told that the owner of the display truck was also in police custody.
A top source said , “ It is true. Tekno , Tijani and the owner of the truck were invited and they are currently in Panti . They are not under arrest at the moment . ”
When asked if the four strippers were also in custody, the source said , “The girls have not been reachable on telephone but when we can contact them, they will be invited . ”
The act is said to be in contravention of Section 136 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State , 2015 which provides that any person who commits any act of gross indecency with another person in public commits an offence and liable on conviction to three years imprisonment .
Section 134 (a ) further stipulates that an indecent act in a public place makes both parties engaging in the act liable to imprisonment for two years .
The Lagos State Signage and Advertisement Agency had last week suspended the licence of the firm that reportedly owns the van for promoting indecent acts .
However , the firm , Pro - Vision Media System Limited , noted that it had sold the vehicle since last year and could not bear any liability.

Tijani and Tekno had on Sunday apologised to Nigerians for the act .
They both claimed that they were only conveying the unclad ladies in a display truck because the one they were using initially had suddenly developed a fault .

The producer said , “ My people, I want to clear the air about a video that has been circulating on various platforms showing some ladies dancing in a truck around the Lekki area. Contrary to the speculations that have been circulating , we were shooting some scenes in an indoor location in a transparent truck in Lekki 1 for one of Tekno ’ s new song .
“ This had nothing to do with advertisement of any sort . As part of the concept of the music video , we had a night scene in a truck and the truck was to move to the next location in Victoria Island , Lagos at about 12 midnight but our production van was faulty , so we had to convey our artist and models on the transparent truck .
“ We apologise for whatever inconveniences we may have caused . We tried to take all caution in ensuring that the shoot was done professionally and our movement was made at midnight . ”
