Police Arrest Lagos Club Owner For Using Girls As Human Puppies
The Lagos State Police Command has arrested socialite, Mike Eze-Nwalie Nwogu, popularly known as Pretty Mike, for allegedly dehumanising young girls by turning them into human puppies with chains round their necks.
Nwogu, 30, owner of Club Uno in Ikeja, was arrested on Wednesday by the police on the orders of the Lagos State Government after images of him attending parties with girls on dog leash went viral on social media.
The development caused outrage from many quarters with people calling on government to act fast to put a rein on such type of bizarre anti-social behaviour.
Nwogu was said to be cooperating with investigation and had given useful statement to the police and was released after given an undertaking to desist from putting any woman or man on a leash to dehumanise them.
According to the undertaking, Nwogu admitted knowing his action was against the law, but pledged not to further indulge in such behaviour.
The undertaking read in part: “I, Mike Eze Nwalie, A.K.A Pretty Mike of 21A Magodo GRA, Luma Street, do hereby undertake to stop whatever act of putting girls on a leash or any other degrading treatment to ladies and guys.
“I am aware that such act offends the law of the State of Lagos and if I repeat it again, there will be legal act towards me.
“I undertake to issue a letter of apology to the public effective from tomorrow on all my social media platforms.”
Speaking on the matter, the State’s Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Adeniji Kazeem, said the state government will not tolerate any anti-social behaviour that attempts to dehumanise any citizen in the State.
Mr Kazeem restated the government’s determination to prosecute any individual or group of persons who violate any law of the State under any guise.
“The Lagos State Government is committed to the protection of the rights of all citizens including children, women and all the vulnerable persons in the State,” Kazeem said.
