Pretty Mike has made a public apology for walking girls like dogs on leash to weddings.
The 30 year old whose real name is Mike Eze-Nwalie Nwogu was earlier arrested by police on the orders of the Lagos State Government for “dehumanising young girls, turning them into human puppies,”.
The arrest resulted from high levels of public outcry from many including celebrities after he carried out the barbaric act for the second time in space of 2 months.

Popular old school actress – Georgina Onuoha – now based in USA had her say:
Where are all the so called celebrities that are supposed to be the mouthpiece of its people? Why are so many of us mute on this matter? Actors? Musicians, models and elected officials? When did our society become numb to everything morally wrong and inexcusable? When did we as a nation and people degenerate to this level? I expect all to be shouting and using their place in the society to call out this folly? If this were to BE a white man today on the streets of Lagos tying two black girls or boys on a leash; I bet we will all cry foul and call for his execution… so why do we all think it’s ok? Because he is a black man ? Some say the girls are cool with it and are doing it willingly… does that make it morally right? Both the girls and the boy need to be checked in into a rehab.. Where are all the men in Nigeria that should be outraged by this boy child for putting them in the worst of light? We are all the women? That should be saying curse be the day this boy was born and to the breast that gave him suck… I know some people know the identities of these girls please report and I will reward you financially they need to be in rehab.. When did we as a society come to this level? Parents!! Most of you have failed your kids.. your child comes back home with gifts they can’t afford yet you dance for joy? How did we become these Nigerians? This picture should be on the walls of every Nigerian actor or artist condemning this act of barbarism.. This is despicable 😡😡
Looks like we are in a moral bind. One day, we champion Bobrisky, the next, we are outraged by Pretty Mike.
We need to make up our minds.

Interestingly, the girls have not be put under the spotlight considering they looked quite happy to be walking under the hallucination of Pretty Mike – it could be down to needing the money he was paying them.
