Illegal possession of firearms: Court frees Small Doctor

… Bounded to be of good behavior for one year


An Ebute Metta Chief Magistrates’ Court Tuesday released hip pop musician, Temitope Adekunle, a.k.a. Small Doctor and three of his band members on a bail bond of N5 million each.

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.”

Co-defendants in the suit filed by the Police against the musicians are Dare Osho, Sanusi Lateef and Hussein Darego.

Chief Magistrate Komolafe gave the orders while ruling in a motion exparte brought before the court by the Police from the State Criminal Intelligence and Investigation Department (SCIID), Panti-Yaba, Lagos against the defendants.

In the suit marked 3564/2018, the Police had prayed the court for a bidding order against “Small Doctor” and co-defendants.

The application was supported with a seven-paragraph affidavit deposed to by Inspector Kasali Saturani.

Saturani had stated in the affidavit that the defendants were allegedly found in possession of a double barrel pistol at Shogunle area of the state.

The musician was represented during proceedings Tuesday by his counsel, Mr. Yakubu Eleto, while Akeem Shittu represented others.

Prosecuting Police officer, Cyril Ajifor, an Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP), while arguing the application, had prayed the court for an order requiring ‘Small Doctor” and other defendants to execute or enter into a recognizance with sureties to keep the peace in Shogunle and its environs of Lagos, for a period of one year.

Ajifor also asked the court for an order that the defendants, “should not engage, recruit, instigate or incite any member of the community to cause breach of public peace or disturb peace within or outside the community” for same period.

He had also asked for other orders as the court may deem fit.

ASP Ajifor told the court that the order sought against the musicians was predicated on three grounds and a written address stating reasons why the court should grant the application.

Upon hearing from the police lawyer, Chief Magistrate Komolafe granted all the orders as sought by the Police in their motion exparte.

  2. Thanks for sharing your ideas. I might also like to state that video games have been at any time evolving. Today’s technology and inventions have made it easier to create sensible and fun games. These kinds of entertainment games were not as sensible when the real concept was first of all being attempted. Just like other areas of technological innovation, video games too have had to progress by way of many many years. This is testimony to the fast growth and development of video games.
