Prankster, Zfancy Regains Freedom From Police Custody

The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) has confirmed the release of skit maker and prankster, Zion Ubani, popularly known as Zfancy.

New Telegraph recalls that the NPF-National Cybercrime Centre had on Thursday, July 4, arrested Zfancy in Abuja over prank videos accusing him of heinous crimes, including rape.

However, the Force Public Relations Officer (FPRO), ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi in an update on Wednesday, said the skit maker was released on bail.


According to him, the prankster was released to the Practitioners of Content Creation, Skit-Making and Influencers Guild of Nigeria (PCCSIGN).

Adejobi stated that the delegation was led to the Force Headquarters by Tokoni Peter Igoin, Special Assistant to the President on ICT Development and Digital Innovation.

He said: “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.”
