In the aftermath of the arrest and the eventual release of music act, Small Doctor for illegal possession of firearm and allegedly threatening to shoot a Police officer, the singer has been warned to desist from acts that can cause breach of community peace.
The failure to adhere to this might spell another issue for the singer who was arraigned before an Ebute Metta Chief Magistrates’ Court yesterday, Tuesday, December 4, 2018.
During the court hearing, Small Doctor who was apprehended alongside three others, Dare Osho, Sanusi Lateef and Hussein Darego, were bound to be of good behaviour for one year by the Chief Magistrate, A. O. Komolafe.
The orders were at the instance of the police, which sought that they be bound for 12-months “not to engage, recruit, instigate or incite any resident of Shogunle and Lagos State by extension, to cause breach of the peace within or outside the community”.
The police supported their application with a seven-paragraph affidavit deposed to by Inspector Kasali Saturani who averred that the defendants were found with a double barrel pistol at Shogunle.
The Police Prosecutor, Cyril Ajifor, an Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP), prayed the court for an order that Small Doctor and the others should enter into a recognisance with sureties to keep the peace in Shogunle and its environs for one year.
Ajifor also prayed for an order that the defendants “should not engage, recruit, instigate or incite any member of the community to cause breach of the public peace within or outside the community” for same period.
At the end of the hearing, the court granted the singer and his three accomplices bail of N5 million each.
The singer was subsequently freed after meeting his bail conditions leading to massive celebrations in his camp and amongst his several followers.
