Music star, Augustine Kelechi better known as Tekno has been granted administrative bail, few hours after he was arrested by the Lagos state police on Tuesday.
Concise News understands that Tekno was subjected to hours of questioning at the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID) Panti, Yaba over a viral video of him dancing with unclad ladies in a truck in Lekki area of the state.
Videos of the incident showing five oiled girls in lingerie dancing around a pole with Tekno throwing foreign currency at them and smacking their butts immediately went viral on social media.
After the video went viral, the singer made clarifications on the footage, saying it was a music video shoot just as he apologized for whatever effect it may have on the general public.
However, the Lagos State Signage and Advertisement Agency suspended the licence of the advertising firm, Pro-Vision Media Systems Limited, that owns the van for promoting indecency.
Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) SCIID, Yetunde Longe, stated that singer has been granted bail on health basis.
She said “ We invited him for questioning but we did not detain him because of his health. He was advised to report to the police whenever he was needed. Investigation is still ongoing,” she said.
Recall that the singer has been off radar over vocal chord ailments.
