Police release prankster Zfancy on bail

The Nigeria Police Force has confirmed the release of skit maker and prankster Zion Ubani, popularly called Zfancy.

Recall that the NPF-National Cybercrime Centre had arrested Zfancy in Abuja on the 4th of July, 2024, over prank videos, accusing him of serious crimes, including rape.

However, on the 10th of July, 2024, the Force Public Relations Officer (FPRO), ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, announced that Zfancy had been released on bail.

In a statement, Adejobi mentioned that the skit maker was released to the executives of the Practitioners of Content Creation, Skit-Making, and Influencers Guild of Nigeria (PCCSIGN).

He added that the delegation, led by Tokoni Peter Igoin, Special Assistant to the President on ICT Development and Digital Innovation, facilitated the release at the Force Headquarters.

“The videos were later found to be scripted. He has been warned to avoid pranks that could cause public unrest.

“While encouraging positive creativity amongst the youthful populace, the NPF urges content creators to responsibly use social media and avoid spreading misinformation that may incite public disorder,” Adejobi said.
