(Updated) And So "Pretty Mike" Was Arrested For Putting Girls on a Leash...





Gov. Ambode arrests Pretty Mike for putting chain on girls .

30-year-old club owner, Mike Eze-Nwalie Nwogu popularly known as ‘Pretty Mike’, has been arrested for dehumanizing young girls by turning them into human puppies with chains round their necks. .

He was arrested on Wednesday by the police on the orders of the Lagos State Government.

Nwogu was said to be cooperating with investigation and had given useful statement to the police and was released after signing an undertaking to desist from the act.

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, Mr. Adeniji Kazeem said the State Government will not tolerate any anti-social behavior that attempt to dehumanize any citizen in the State. .

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.

Why did this make me sad? All the poor man wanted was to trend... 😢😢😢

***

Below is the law the Lagos state government arrested Pretty Mike for violating. 


This is such an amibiguous and vague law. If this guy takes the lagos state government to court, his chances would be really good. "Indecent act" is very subjective. As we've already seen in the court of public opinion, some people consider what Pretty Mike did a form of art. Some think it's dehumanizing. Some are indifferent. So how do we all decide and agree on what acts are indecent?

  2. lol this is very funny and unnecessary if you ask me. The girls are adults and consented. Is it not funny when government looks the other way with regards to real life issues but has time for petty nonsense like the above. The guy wanted some cheap popularity and he got it. The girls conveniently wore masks. With this recession 10,000 will motivate alot of girls to do that. Call me strange but I did not find this offensive. The minor that was married off to an old man (with the Emirs blessing)in the north against her parents wish, remember that news, that was offensive.J

    3. I found it extremely offensive (even if I do mind my business), there is no absolute freedom and we are no animals. It has nothing to do with being adults and consenting to such acts, there are nudists everywhere but you will get arrested for indecent exposure.

      We are in trouble without some measure of control, and normalization of deviance leads to terrible consequences.

  4. Hian! Isnt this a free state.
    A girl feels like wearing a mask and putting a chain round her neck, then she calls a guy to hold the chain at the other end. How is that an offense?

    Thelma. Cant you represent this guy, he should sue the State Govt. For causing emotional stress, for tarnishing his image, for giving him a phobia against the Govt, for oppressing him. The list is endless.

    Peace

    1. I totally agree with you. I feel it silly on the part of the government. As long as the girls were not forced, what they do is their business but trust Nigerians to look down on others from their horse of high morals. We keep trying to protect a dignity that doesn't even exist in the first place.

    2. Kon, J shares the sentiments you do. J is a lawyer too. Oya J, over to you. 😊

      Thelma on the other hand, she just likes to rhyme. Read the above sentence for example.

    1. As in, I can only imagine whether they did it for the money, fun or whatever. Somehow the picture is dehumanizing truely. But then the ladies are adult and they consented to it, so... Pretty Mike brought the idea up and got willing participants. Case settled.

  6. I totally agree with the anonymous above. The guy wants to be noticed and he has gotten it. Those ladies are adults and have a mind of their own. They did not complain to anyone. All na huzzle to put food on the table.

    Which is better. To allow someone put chain on your neck and get paid in some minutes or allow all manner of men sleep with you to make money?.

    Don't be surprised so many ladies will jump to this offer as far as it puts food on their table.


    The rate at which prices of things in the market increase ehhhh.

  7. I also didn't see the sense in this too. I was surprised when my colleagues mentioned it today.

    As angry as I was when I heard of the guy walking around with ladies on a dog leash, I was more angry at the ladies who allowed themselves to be put on a dog leash. Infact, my anger toward him dissipated when I saw pictures and realised the ladies were grown women who were mature enough to give consent.

    Apparently, the guy owns a club somewhere(unsubstantiated) and the dog leash thing was an attempt to gain publicity. I can just imagine how many people who would flock to his club just to see the "disgusting person putting ladies on dig leashes" all the while buying drinks and stuff.

    Can the government please intervene in issues that actually matter?

    Plus, I agree with Kon, he should sue the government for defamation of character if he didn't break any apparent law. Makes no sense!

  8. I totally disagree with you all. The state government did the right thing to nib this in the bud before it becomes a trend. Nigerians will do anything for fame, another man may wake up tomorrow and start riding on the back of human beings like a horse. There could been be other other more dangerous trend that may arise.What he did is wrong in its entirety be it that the girls gave their consent or not and I am happy that the government is beginning to pay attention to the little ills in the society.

    1. Thank you!!!I don't give a damn about his rights, they should arrest the girls too and cane them.

      Some of you people want homosexuals to be arrested, yet these ones shouldn't because they are all consenting adults?

      I'm dizzy y'all

    2. @Punintended they should arrest the girls too and (wait for it) cane them?
      Apparently you don't give a damn about rights after all, hope yours are included as well(?)

  9. The Lawyer in me will always disagree with what Ambode did. He had no business arresting the guy. And that law is totally unrelated to what prettymike (even though i think he's a moron) did. The Courts would never rule that what he did was 'indecent'.

    Ambode is just a 'show' governor and just wanted to trend really. I cant even stand the guy, after his convoy almost killed my friend and he went on twitter to claim that he was the one that saved her. So maybe i am biased. Oniranu.

    1. LOL,oniranu got me.the girls are adult and have ways they choose to wanna make their money,so if being human dogs to pretty Mike is their own way,then what's ambodes own? He should better attend to other pressing state issues.

  10. This is hilarious though, were the girls under a spell, how much are they paid to walk around in public like that? Now it is a state government issue. Well they have gotten the well deserved attention.
