He was alleged to have threatened to open fire on a Police officer before he was arrested.

The state Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi, said Small Doctor had, in the past, fired shots and injured four people.

He noted that the injured persons were admitted to a hospital and vowed that the artiste would be made to face the law.

Small Doctor recently created a controversy after singing at an event of the All Progressives Congress.

He had sung one of his hit tracks, ‘Ye ma sun (stop sleeping), which many said was targeted at the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.

But the singer’s manager denied the claim.

The Police Public Relations Officer, CSP Chike Oti, as of 2.30pm, said Small Doctor’s arraignment for unlawful possession of firearms and threatening violence was ongoing.
