- The federal government has condemned the public indecency by dancers in Lagos state
- This came after singer Tekno breached public decency by displaying half-clad women in a bid to shoot a music video
- Tekno was on Tuesday, August 6, invited for questioning by the Nigerian police
Over the weekend, singer Augustine Kelechi, also known as Tekno, shocked Nigerians after he was spotted in a glass box on a moving truck dancing with ladies who were not fully dressed.
The act, which was done in a bid to shoot a music video, was condemned by a large number of Nigerians.
In a recent development, the federal government has moved to condemn public indecency by dancers. The government described the act by Tekno and his dancers as a strange entertainment from the pit of hell.
According to ThisDay, a statement released by the director-general of the national council for arts and culture, Segun Runsewe, condemned the act.
Runsewe expressed that the government would focus on re-positioning the true gains and pictures of the diverse cultural history of Nigeria.

He said: "The Lekki public show negates the beauty of Nigerian culture and way of life. It is unacceptable, Jezebelistic and a sin against Nigerian culture, which must be condemned, ridiculed and rejected by Nigerians from all works of life."
“The Lekki debacle must be used as an example to officially clamp down on promoters and influencers of strange entertainment from the pit of hell. Nigeria will never succumb to an imported cultural pastime or to blackmail, tailored to destroy centuries-old and rich Nigerian culture.
“This dizzying madness cannot and would not be allowed to turn Nigeria to a destination for sex and illegal drug tourism. Enough is enough, and for God's sake, where is this coming from?”
After the incident received backlash, Tekno issued a public apology explaining that he was shooting a music video.

It was also gathered that the advertising firm that produced the van that was used in the music video was suspended by the Lagos state signage and advertisement agency.
In another development, Tekno who was questioned by the police for hours was allegedly granted bail because of his health.
Deputy Commissioner of Police Yetunde Longe said: “Yes, we invited him for questioning but we did not detain him because of his health. He was advised to report to the police whenever he was needed. The investigation is still ongoing.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that the singer was reportedly invited by officers of the Nigerian Police Force in Lagos in connection to his involvement with disrupting public decency in the state.
