Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni

The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni has said that it will treat Mike Eze-Nwalie, aka Pretty Mike‘s case as a criminal investigation.

Mike had walked into a wedding venue last weekend with two ladies on a dog leash. An act that sparked outrage on social media. That was not the first time he was doing that as he had shared a video of him walking with the same ladies on a leash to another event.

He was on Wednesday arrested for what was called a “dehumanising act”.

Mike was also made to sign an undertaking that he will not repeat the act.

The Law Pretty Mike violated

Owoseni said that the Domestic and Sexual Violence Response Team (DSVRT) of Lagos State are also looking into the matter.

The police chief said that the command “will be looking at the story from the angle of criminal investigation” and will keep the public abreast of any development.

      As in seriously! Its not that deep. The women agreed to it anyways. Its not like he was abusing them. People are still getting kidnapped, robbed and brutalized in broad day light.

      Lol… So true. They are yet to treat the police officers who sexually assaulted the ladies on their way from outing months ago. Blatant sexual crime cases. It shows that if Nigerians cry more with outrage on social media about problems in Nigeria, maybe that will compel the government for improvement.

    Mr. Fatai Owoseni why don’t you, the Nigeria Police and the Attorney general of Lagos State get a life? I can certainly see that you people don’t have any serious work to do. That’s why you were so obsessed with pretty Mike’s prank. Judging from the same picture online, No crime whatsoever has been committed by pretty Mike. Those ladies are willing participants Neither you nor the Attorney general of Lagos State can get a criminal conviction in any Courts in any parts of Nigeria based on their acts. Secondly, the stupid law you trying to use is vague. You will have to locate a narrow minded judge like you and the Lagos State Attorney general in order to criminally convict him of this act. I urged you all to use your common sense in future whenever you see anything like that again instead of rushing to judgment and making yourselves look really stupid A word is enough for the wise. I’m just saying.

    Really though? All these people on top this matter??? They even did a press conference on top this thing sha. Smh! What’s their definition of indecent act? This would have been a good opportunity to remind and educate the public on some of the laws most people are not even aware of. Fine the guy if they can actually prove he broke the law and let him do community service in an area that promotes women empowerment.

    Quick Question: Is smoking or posession of weed in public/private legal in Nigeria?

    Way to go please!! He should hire his own lawyers too then and let them all meet in court. I’m just shaking my head when folks say it’s not that deep, sometimes this our generation ehn, we joke with and trivialise just about anything. What we should take seriously we joke about until we start to see and experience the negative results of our passivity then we start crying Wolf, scripture we will joke about and trivialise, men of God o, we will insult with impunity, pretty Mike leading girls with a leash not only in public, but to a wedding, not just once but twice!! And not even being remorseful we will turn the other eye, please let those who still have a sense of morality do their job. Let them deal with this one now,they will have grace to handle “corrupt people” tomorrow. This one too is very important.

    Dude shut the fcuk up!! He did not commit any crime by having women in chains. They gave him their fcuking consent. You could say it was immoral but immorality is not a crime, facts only. We need to hear from the ladies in question. This is a waste of resources when there are thousands of children who suffer from domestic violence. Nothing is done about this. Kids are beaten and forced to sell on the road instead of going to school. Why isn’t the Lagos state government arresting the adults/parents responsible for these kids? Also, there are so many domestic servants that are being abused daily. What is the Lagos state government doing to ensure that domestic servants are treated like human beings and not animals?
    Husbands are beating their wives and come to social media to brag about how their wives are kids and should be corrected physically when they misbehave. Now that’s a criminal offence. That’s how i called 767 in Lagos when soneone broke into my home at 2am, they contacted the nearest police station but they never showed up. Lagos state police needs to protect the people that need protection. There are serious issues to deal with.

    Linda is putting weight behind this to send message home that she is powerful. I mean pressure is coming from somewhere if not this won’t get to this stage. Maybe she’s had a bet that PM will go to jail or something.

    Lekan that killed his wife didn’t get this much publicity….women get beaten everyday by some men and they don’t get this much publicity. Women get raped by men that are not even hiding and they don’t get this much publicity.

    Linda better take it easy.

    Nothing wrong with them looking into the matter. That’s what the police should have done in the first place; if something looks wrong, they should investigate. The police is there to protect the people, and someone that enjoys putting women on leashes definitely deserves to be investigated. But their basis for the arrest was stupid.

    please why are they disturbing this short boy? he did nothing wrong, he’s merely an attention seeker like most people on social media and has some money to throw around. the girls were not force now? ehn? they should free the guy, and that mumu that wants Justice for how women are used in videos, did they force them? these girls have no dignity, no self respect and would do anything for money for weave and shoes and bags, free the short okoro jare, let them go and look for the stupid girls

    What this Mike fellow did was reprehensible and extremely tasteless. That said, I’m not entirely comfortable with the idea of government wading into issues like this. It is potentially a very slippery slope.
    However, as it has been elevated to the level of a crime, if the women were willing adult participants in this alleged act of indecency in the eyes of the law, have they also been invited by the police? and will they be facing charges as well? If it going to be a legal issue then it seems to me that ALL parties involved should be subject to legal action, not just the man holding the chain. At the very least the women are possibly guilty of providing support in the commission of a crime.

    Does anyone have an contrary legal argument? If so, please enlighten me.

      That IS the crux of the matter. Gbam!!You hit the figurative nail on the figurative head. All parties involve need to be arrested. Not just Mike. I fear for my country.The backwardness is DEEP. People running the country as if it were their retard villages. Do we have intelligent humans in that country to counter the acts of the majority of twits who run it.

    The only establishment that has the right to publicly restrict the movement of an individual is the law and the enforcers of it. An individual has no right to chain another individual in public whether they are being paid or not! With the outcry on social media, I am not surprised that this is being looked into. If they had remained silent,some people would have also criticized them for doing so. There is nothing wrong with carrying out an investigation. The moral of the story is…you cannot impose your fetish on people in public places esp when that fetish is indecent. Allowing this to slide sets a precedence for others to follow. Next thing, you will see someone with people on a leash walking on all four like dogs. Please I am in support of this investigation especially as a deterrent to others!

    My take,
    1. the girls are not minors
    2. I’ve not heard anything regarding their mental capacity I.e are they mentality incapacitated and did this man take advantage of this?
    3. Did they do this under duress I.e blackmail, threat to life
    In conclusion with my number 1 point and if the answers to 2 and 3 are negative then there really is no case. I feel the Nigerian police and society are setting a dangerous unsustainable precedent.. It’s a total waste off and absolute abuse of their power and authority. This display -for want of a better word , was not on a public free way, a mosque or a church, outside a school , were it could have been seen as inappropriate and public nusiance .I understand it was in a club. Many many things happen inside a club. Are the police going to arrest everyone in it.
    For people saying this display could corrupt their children, I say bring them up well. Teach them to respect themselves, mind what they have access to on the Internet . If you sow this seed your children will abhor acts which are contrary to their upbringing. And if the main concern is dehumanising female loooooooool in Nigeria please Abeg what are we doing about the current state of legalised domestic abuse in families. Honestly Nigerian mentality defies the norm. It’s a chaotic mess.

    There are bigger issues in Nigeria…so sad we waste resources on nuisances like “pretty Mike”. They can’t see the pain in people’s eyes as they walk by, Oligarchy is the government system. Thank God for religious organisations calming the citizenry or Nigeria will have become syria
