Popular Nigerian Musician ‘Small Doctor’, has been granted bail by a magistrate court in Ebute Meta Lagos. The bail accompanied a warning that the artiste should not engage in any violent act for the next one year.
The court ruled in favour of ‘Small Doctor’, because he had licence to move with a gun.
‘Small Doctor’, alongside three others, were arrested by the Police on Monday at Oshodi for harassing a Police officer with a gun. He was also accused of unlawfully carrying a functional rifle.
Edgal Imohimi, Lagos State Commissioner of Police, stated during the parade that the state had called on all those with similar rifles to relinquish the ammunition to the state regardless of their licences.
“You will recall that only recently, the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, gave a window of opportunity for all those who have this category of firearms to return them. All licences were cancelled and all approvals were suspended,” the CP said during the parade.
However, the magistrate court ruled in favour of Small Doctor.
The musician was among a group of popular Nigerian entertainers appointed ambassador to the Nigeria Police Force earlier this year.
The group, including Omoni Oboli, Odunlade Adekola, Sound Sultan, Dr Sid, Korede Bello and Ruggedman, were seen in Police uniforms posing with Officer Dolapo Badmos.
He also performed at a show tagged ‘Entertainment Meets Security’ at the University of Lagos in March.
