Federal Government to make Tekno a scape goat over released music video

The Federal Government has promised to bring sanity into the social lives of citizens and stop the debasement of humanity and the pride of Nigerian women by making scapegoats of some persons.

The government was reacting to the controversial music video by Tekno, with scenes of four semi-nude women dancing in a moving van on the Lekki-Ikoyi Link Bridge in Lagos.

A statement on Sunday by the Director General, National Council for Arts and Culture, a parastatal of the Federal Ministry of Information and Culture, Segun Runsewe, said Tekno would be made a scapegoat “to teach others a serious lesson.”

He stated, “We commend the police for arresting Tekno for the shameful misconduct. The same person, who was granted bail on health grounds has gone ahead to release the controversial video. We are now warning him to desist from this shameful conduct, which is not part of our culture.

“No single person is bigger than Nigeria; whether he likes it or not, we are going to use him as a scapegoat to send strong signals that this government does not tolerate nonsense and immorality, but discipline, which is our moral principle.

“Since the offensive Tekno scam video came to the limelight, I have received hundreds of telephone calls and SMS from Nigerians at home and others in the United Kingdom, United States, Canada and other parts of the world querying why such anomalies would be tolerated in Nigeria.

“Now that he has released the shameful video when investigation is still ongoing, we are going to inform security agencies to place him on their watch list, because his action is a threat to national security and a bad influence on Nigerian youths.


  1. I was surprised when i saw the video. He should have held on to it

  2. Serious government. What has a video got to do with you people? Did he steal government money? Have they made real thieves, the real problems of Nigeria a scapegoat? He is in the US go and arrest him

  3. Please how can I download it? They've not made any Fulani herder killer a scape goat, is it someone who is struggling to earn a living will be made as a scape goat?

  4. FG should use Bokoharam and Fulani herdsmen as scape goats not him

  5. Misplaced priorities

  6. FG will only use harmless people

  7. When charity begins at home.
