Why I was detained by Police – Shina Peller


House of Representatives member and owner of popular Lagos nightclub Quilox, Shina Peller has broken silence on his arrest by the Lagos state police command.

Recall that the lawmaker who was granted bail few hours after his case was transferred to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Yaba, was detained while trying to take the bail of some clubbers.

The Lagos State Environmental Protection Agency also sealed off Club Quilox at Victoria Island, Lagos for noise pollution and traffic congestion.

However, lawmaker representing Egbeda/Ona Ara Federal Constituency, Akin Alabi said the arrest of Peller was an indication that police brutality “knows no status.”

The lawmaker appreciated everyone for the outpour of love and support following his arrest.

Shina Peller also disclosed that he is fine and in good spirits as all issues are now being addressed at the appropriate level

On his Instagram page, he wrote: “Hello my people, I want to thank everyone for the outpour of love and support over the events that occurred yesterday. I am fine and in good spirits.

“Currently heading to Iseyin to spend Christmas with my constituents. All issues are being addressed at the appropriate level and I will release a formal statement in due course.”
