The Lagos State Police Command has reportedly arrested and detained the member representing Iseyin/Itesiwaju/Kajola/Iwajowa Federal Constituency of Oyo State in the House of Representatives, Shina Peller at the Moroko Police Station.
Peller, who is owner of Quilox, a popular Lagos club was allegedly arrested while trying to take the bail of some clubbers.
A statement issued by Peller’s Press Secretary, Kola Popoola on Tuesday claimed that the lawmaker’s offence was not disclosed to him as his phones were allegedly seized by the Police.
“Peller was at Moroko Police Station to bail some of Club Quilox’s customers who had allegedly parked on the road during a show at the club,” the statement said.
It added: “Prior to the kickoff of the 36 hours non-stop show which usually holds every year at Quilox, Peller had informed the concerned Lagos traffic authorities to avoid unnecessary traffic gridlock.
“On getting to Moroko Police Station, the Police started harassing Peller and even went as far as seizing all his phones for no reason.
“The continuous harassment and unjust detaining of a member of House of Representatives, Peller by the Police calls for urgent attention of the media and the Commissioner of Police.”
