Lagos Club owner, Mike Eze-Nwalie Nwogu, popularly known as ‘Pretty Mike’ was reportedly arrested on Wednesday by the Lagos Police Command. Mike was arrested on the orders of the Lagos State Government.
Pretty Mike caused ripples on social media last weekend after a video of him walking with two ladies on a dog leash appeared online. That was not the first time Mike was doing that as he had, at different times walked into event venues with the ladies on the leash.
According to NAIJ.com, Mike was made to sign an undertaking that he will not dehumanise any man or woman by putting a leash on them
Reports say he admitted knowing his action was against the law, but pledged not to further indulge in such behaviour.
“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,” the undertaken read in part.
The Lagos State Attorney-General & Commissioner for Justice, Adeniji Kazeem was quoted as saying; “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.”
The commissioner also added that any individual or group that violates the state’s laws will be prosecuted.
