Police have arrested the owner of Quilox night club and House of Representatives member, Hon. Shina Peller.
This arrest has come as a result of claims of traffic offence by the Nigerian Police. According to reports, Shina Peller went to Maroko police station to bail some of his customers who attended their yearly 36-hour non stop show after they were arrested by police for allegedly obstructing the flow of traffic after parking their cars at a wrong spot. And instead of being interrogated about the situation, he was immediately arrested and detained.
According to Shina Peller’s Press secretary; Mr Kola Popoola, Shina had already informed the Lagos State traffic authorities before the show was held as he knew definitely that the flow of traffic would be obstructed which should have abstained him from any arrest or detention whatsoever. He has revealed the police officers seized his phones so he wouldn’t be able to communicate with anyone from outside.
He has revealed the continuous harassment and unjust detention of a member of House of Representatives, Hon. Peller, by the police calls for urgent attention of the media, and the commissioner of Police.
