She said: “Yes, we invited him for questioning however we didn’t detain him due to his health. He was suggested to report back to the police whenever he was needed. Investigation continues to be in progress.”
Similarly, Lagos State Police representative, Bala Elkana, a Deputy Superintendent (DSP) said the 2 ladies were conjointly in remission.
“He is presently undergoing questioning at the SCIID Panti. Public indecency was against the Criminal Code and if found guilty after investigation, all those accountable will be charged to court,” said Elkana.
