The police in Lagos State on Monday confirmed that a popular music video director, Clarence Peters, is still in detention.
The arrest of Clarence Peters as part of police investigation into the death of a Nigerian dancer and video vixen, Love Divine aka Kodak.
The embattled music video director is the son of veteran musician, Shina Peters, and actress Clarion Chukwura.
The dancer was alleged to have died of electrocution while charging her phone at Peters’ house on Wednesday.
Bala Elkana, the Lagos State police spokesperson, told the media on Monday that the music video director is still being detained.
“My response has been clear. Do we have him in custody, I say we do. Why do you have him in custody? We are investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of the dancer.
“We are also waiting for the autopsy result. Investigation is a natural cause. It is important for him and it is also good for any other person who was there. If nobody has a hand in it, the report will clear everybody. If the result says it is a murder case, the law will take its cause. That is exactly why we have him, that is exactly what we are doing,” the police spokesperson said.
