We Have Released ‘King Of Madness’ - Police An upcoming artiste who identified himself as King of Madness, Anthony Uchechukwu, has been released by the Lagos State Police Command. Recall the artiste was paraded as a criminal suspect at the command headquarters on Wednesday. Speaking on his arrest, Uchechukwu said that policemen stopped the Uber ride he had boarded to a show at Lekki around 10.45pm on Wednesday. “They told me that I was being taken to meet a DPO. I just saw myself here this morning. I still don’t understand what’s happening,” he said. However, in a follow-up reaction on the paraded suspects on Thursday, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi, said the artiste was released after a proper background proved that he has a means of livelihood. “The King of Madness has been released; he was released after a proper background check on him. We discovered that he has a means of livelihood like many others. It was not only him, but all those that have a means of livelihood have been released,” Adejobi said. “There was no special treatment for him, as everybody was treated equally. There is no way police will embark on a raid and certain individuals will not be picked, either erroneously or for not presenting a means of identification as of the time they are arrested. “In his own case, he could not provide an ID card according to those who arrested him. The DCP SCIID, Panti, personally did the screening for those that were raided yesterday and some of them that have means of livelihood and have gone through background check were released, while others would be charged to court,” he added. “In his own case, he could not provide an ID card according to those who arrested him.

The artiste, who was among 1,320 suspects paraded by the state Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, on Wednesday, said he was arrested after some policemen stopped the Uber he boarded on his way to a show at Lekki around 10.45pm.

He said, “They told me that I was being taken to meet a DPO. I just saw myself here this morning. I still don’t understand what’s happening.”

He stated that no incriminating material was found on him, adding that the policemen gave him permission to make a video while they frisked him.

“My identity looks like that of a criminal, but I’m an artiste, not a cultist,” Uche said, as he took off his shirt to reveal his body covered in tattoos.

“My mummy used to tell me that there’s a way a book will be too dirty that you won’t be able to touch it let alone identify its content. They are judging me by my appearance,” he added.

The singer wondered why he was arrested alone while the Uber driver was allowed to go.

Some fans of the artiste, who expressed anger at his arrest on Facebook, berated the police for judging him by his appearance.

One Julian Anyanwu said, “They should free him. His name is Uche, aka Suruche. He’s an artist. Right from our secondary school days, he likes acting crazy but isn’t one.”

Na crime to get tattoo. is the guy profession. You don’t expect him to dress like a pastor.this is no excuse. Where is it written that you can’t have tattoos and tie your hair. They should leave this guy’s trying to provide for themselves and go for the main criminal.”
