Lagos club owner and member of the House of Representatives, Shina Peller has been released from police detention.
The legislator who owns Club Quilox at Victoria Island and represents Iseyin/Itesiwaju/Iwajowa/Kajola Federal Constituency, has, however, remained mute on the altercation between him and the Lagos police.
He has yet to make a public statement on his ordeal which grabbed public attention following the removal of three vehicles allegedly obstructing traffic in the Victoria Island area where the club is located.
The police was said to have been angered after the legislator reportedly led thugs to retrieve the vehicles from the Maroko police station.
According to The Punch:
“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 exercise a lot of restraints.
“They have been moved to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Panti, where they are being investigated.”
