Nigeria Police Release Zfancy After Prank Video Controversy


The Nigeria Police Force recently confirmed the release of Zfancy, a popular skit maker and prankster, following his arrest in Abuja by the NPF-National Cybercrime Centre on July 4. Zfancy had been apprehended due to prank videos that falsely implicated individuals in serious crimes, such as rape. This incident sparked significant attention and concern regarding the boundaries of online content creation and its impact on public perception and safety.

In an update provided by ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, the Force Public Relations Officer, it was disclosed that Zfancy was released on bail under the custody of representatives from the Practitioners of Content Creation, Skit-Making and Influencers Guild of Nigeria (PCCSIGN). This decision came after scrutiny revealed that the videos in question were scripted, intended solely for entertainment purposes rather than malicious intent.

The Police statement underscored the need for responsible use of social media platforms, especially among content creators who wield significant influence over youthful audiences.
