Singer Adekunle Temitope, aka Small Doctor, who was recently arrested and taken to court for illegal possession of firearms has finally explained circumstances that led to the whole issue.
The singer, who was released from Police custody on Tuesday, said his issue with the Police was a case of misunderstanding.
In a report gathered from The PUNCH, he said: “It was a case of misunderstanding and everything is settled.
“My fans need to know that I will not get involved in any illegality. The younger ones look up to me for hope and I will never let them down.”
Small Doctor insisted that he had licence to carry a gun, saying that he was stunned when he later read that he was in possession of illegal firearms.
He added, “As I said earlier, I cannot be involved in any illegal activity. There is no way I will hold a firearm without having a licence.”
“My issue with the Police is even a major reason for people to attend my Sunday show.
“There is no need to panic and we have invested heavily in the security of lives and property,” he maintained.
On why he settled for Agege Stadium in Lagos for his debut concert, he said, “I believe I am exceptional and people around me are exceptional, too.
“I am a man of the people and I believe I should give back to my society. They have been the one supporting me from the outset. I want them to feel important and happy.
“Eko Hotel in Victoria Island, Lagos, cannot even handle the crowd I want to entertain.”
