The police in Lagos have released Shina Peller, owner of Quilox club — 24 hours after he was arrested over the traffic congestion caused by his customers.

TheCable Lifestyle earlier reported that the politician was docked on Monday at Maroko police station after his club staged its annual 36-hour party which ended at 8am on Monday.

Peller took to Instagram on Tuesday to reassure fans and relatives of his safety, adding that all issues pertaining to the controversy are being addressed.

“Hello, my people, I want to thank everyone for the outpour of love and support over the events that occurred yesterday. I am fine and in good spirits,” he wrote.

“Currently heading to Iseyin to spend Xmas with my constituents. All issues are being addressed at the appropriate level and I will release a formal statement in due course.”

Following events that had eventually led to the lawmaker’s arrest, the state police alleged that Peller mobilized 50 thugs to forcefully retrieve Quilox’s customers’ vehicles that were towed by security operatives.

Aside from his arrest, the controversy also caused the Lagos State Environmental Protection Agency (LASEPA) to seal off the club for causing noise pollution and gridlock in a move that birthed a social media outrage.

“The owner of that club and his customers are fond of parking on the road and blocking the road. If you want to pass that place, you will have tough times. Up till 9am, the club was still on,” Bala Elkana, a police spokesperson had said.

“They refused to remove their vehicles and Lagosians were seriously disturbed. Even the governor was affected this morning. He had to maneuver his way through it. This man had been talked to many times, but he refused to listen.”
