The Federal Government has said it will make a scapegoat out of hip hop star, Augustine Kelechi popularly known as Tekno, for promoting nudity in public space.
The artiste, in the four-minute video, was seen throwing money perceived to be dollars at the nude women.
The government expressed disappointment that despite ongoing investigations into the anomaly, Tekno went ahead to release the offensive video.
He said, “We commend the police for arresting Tekno for the shameful misconduct.
“The same person who was granted bail on health ground went ahead to release the controversial video.
“We are now warning him to desist from this shameful conduct which is not part of our culture.
“No single person is bigger than Nigeria; whether he likes it or not, we are going to use him as scapegoat to send a strong signal that this government does not tolerate nonsense and immorality.”
Section 136 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015, states that any person, who commits any act of gross indecency with another person in public, commits an offence and is liable upon conviction to three years imprisonment.
The Lagos State Signage and Advertising Agency has since suspended the advertising agency whose display truck was used in shooting the video.
