Shina Peller

According to reports,  the Lagos state police command  have  arrested and detained a member of the House of Representatives, Shina Peller, at the Moroko Police Station.

Shina Peller, the owner of the Quilox club and a representative of Iseyin/Itesiwaju/Kajola/Iwajowa Federal Constituency, Oyo State, was allegedly nabbed by police men while trying to take the bail of some clubbers.

A statement by Peller’s Press Secretary, Kola Popoola, claimed that the lawmaker’s offence was not disclosed to him as his  smart phones were seized.

He said:

“Peller was at Moroko Police Station to bail some of Club Quilox’s customers who had allegedly parked on the road during a show at the club.

“Prior to the kickoff of the 36 hours non-stop show which usually holds every year at Quilox, Peller had informed the concerned Lagos traffic authorities to avoid unnecessary traffic gridlock.

“On getting to Moroko Police Station, the police started harassing Peller and even went as far as seizing all his phones for no reason.

“The continuous harassment and unjust detaining of a member of House of Representatives, Peller, by the police calls for urgent attention of the media, and the Commissioner of Police.”

Responding to the incident, the Lagos State  Police Public Relations Officer,Bala Elkana explained the reason for the lawmaker arrest.

According to Bala, Shina Peller’s night club,  Quilox,  have been fond of obsrusting fhe free flow of traffic. Bala also stated that Peller  had be warned many times but he ignored the warnings.

Bala explained that after some of his customers’ vehicles caused gridlock on Monday, the police intervened by towing three of the vehicles. According to Bala, Shina Peller mobilised thugs, invaded the station and forcefully removed the vehicles.

He said,

“The honourable is the owner of that club and his customers are fond of parking on the road and blocking the road. If you want to pass that place, you will have tough times.

“Up till 9am, the club was still on. They refused to remove their vehicles and Lagosians were seriously disturbed. Even Mr Governor was affected this morning. He had to manoeuvre his way through it.

“This man had been talked to many times, but he refused to listen. This morning, our patrol vehicles towed three vehicles out of that place so that people could pass.

“This honourable mobilised over 50 thugs to attack Maroko Police Station to move those vehicles out. We had to send reinforcement from neighbouring stations before they were able to curtail the situation. That was how he was arrested with five of the thugs, while others escaped. We had to excerise a lot of restraints.

“They have been moved to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Panti, where they are being investigated.”
