Nigerian singer Small Doctor who was over the weekend arrested for ‘illegal possession’ of firearms has revealed that he has a license to carry a gun, thus saying that his arrest by the Lagos State police was a case of misunderstanding.
Recall the singer was arrested a few days ago for ‘illegal possession’ of firearms and for allegedly threatening to shoot a police officer.
The singer was arraigned earlier on Tuesday at the Ebute Metta Magistrate court along with the other occupants in his car and was subsequently released.
Chief Magistrate, Mrs. A.O. Komolafe, who granted bail to the musicians, also bounded them for one year “not to engage, recruit, instigate or incite any member of the Shogunle community and Lagos State by extension, to cause breach of public peace or disturb peace within or outside the community.”
Small Doctor wrote;
“It was a case of misunderstanding and everything is settled. My fans need to know that I will not get involved in any illegality. The younger ones look up to me for hope and I will never let them down”
Small Doctor insisted that he had licence to carry a gun, saying that he was stunned when he later read that he was in possession of illegal firearms,
“as I said earlier, I cannot be involved in any illegal activity. There is no way I will hold a firearm without having a licence” he added.
