Shina Peller was released on bail after his case was transferred to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Yaba.
It will be recalled that Hon. Peller was arrested and detained by the Police in connection with the operations of Quilox – a popular night club in Lagos owned by him.
Mr Peller was arrested on Monday by operatives of the Lagos State Police Command and detained at Moroko Police station, Lagos State.
He was said to have gone to Moroko police station to bail some of Club’s customers who had allegedly parked on the road during a show at the Club.
Explaining the arrest and detention of Peller, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Bala Elkana, said Quilox’s customers are fond of obstructing the free flow of traffic.
