Lagos State Police Command commence investigation on video of Tekno and Lekki unclad girls


The Lagos State Police Command has stated that they have commenced investigation into a viral video which shows singer Tekno and some unclad girls dancing in a truck on a road in Lekki.

The act was said to be the shooting of a scene from a new music video by Tekno featuring Zlatan Ibile.

Claiming the air on the brouhaha raised by the viral video, Tekno said:

“I will like to clear the air about the situation of videos going around of girls in a truck dancing around Lekki or Victoria Island.

“First of all, there was no reason for us to be dancing in a truck around Lekki. There was no music and no ventilation in the truck. We were shooting a music video and we had a shortage of vehicles to convey people to the next location, because some of the cars broke down in between the shoot. We divided ourselves into various vehicles because we had been shooting all day and having fun, and we then moved to the next location.

“However, this was about 12am. This was no form of an advert for a strip club or dancing Unclad on the streets for any type of reason. In addition, we respect the decency of Lagos and as much as we are entertainers, we are always mindful of what we have and don’t jeopardise it. That’s why we enjoy shooting our videos in Lagos as we all know that it’s the centre of excellence and also the centre of entertainment.

“We sincerely apologise if some people saw this and felt offended by the scenery they saw, it was never intended.”



Reacting to the video, the Lagos State Police Command’s Public Relations Officer, Bala Elkana, said investigations by the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department have commenced on the issue.

He stated, “The SCID has been directed to investigate the matter and it has commenced an investigation into this, because it is not acceptable and it is against the law of the land.

“There are laid down procedures for advertisement and the government agency responsible has reacted to that; also, it is against our criminal code and if after investigation those involved are found guilty, they will be charged to court.”
