The National Council for Arts and Culture (NCAC) says Augustine Kelechi, popularly known as “Tekno” shall be sanctioned for the controversial music video in which he parades nude dancers. Its Director-General, Mr Olusegun Runsewe, made this assertion while adding that Tekno will serve as a scapegoat to teach others serious lesson.
“No single person is bigger than Nigeria. We are going to use him as a scapegoat to send a strong signal that this government does not tolerate nonsense and immorality, but discipline, which is our moral principle,” Runsewe said.
In a statement by his media aide, Mr Frank Meke, described the offensive video as disgusting with scenes of four nude women dancing in a moving van on Lekki-Epe Expressway. The director-general expressed disappointment that in spite of the ongoing investigations into the anomalies, the offensie video was still released went
The director-general also stated that security agencies would be directed to place Tekno on watch list, adding, “his conduct is a threat to national security”. Runsewe said that Section 134 (a) of the Criminal Law of Lagos State (2015) stipulates that an indecent act in a public place made parties engaging in the act liable to imprisonment for two years.
“Section136, however, states that any person, who committed any act of gross indecency with another person in public, committed an offence and is liable upon conviction to three years imprisonment” he said.
