Nigerian Rapper and Zanku dance pioneer, Zlatan Ibile has regained his freedom, 5 days after being held in custody over his alleged involvement in cyber crime.
Zlatan, Naira Marley and three others were arrested on Friday, May 10th 2019 at 9, Gbangbola Street, Ikate, Lekki, Lagos.
He was released alongside his crew members, Tiamiu Abdulrahman Kayode, Adewunmi Adeyanju Moses and Abubakar Musa. According to our source, no charges were filed against him and Rahman Jago.
When contacted, EFCC spokesman, Tony Orilade, confirmed that the suspects were released on administrative bail.
“There is overwhelming evidence against Naira Marley; so we can’t afford to release him on administrative bail like the others.
“That Zlatan has been released does not mean they have been discharged and acquitted. Naira Marley is still in our custody and will be charged to court soon and we will make the charges known in an official statement soon.”
It has also been reported that Davido facilitated Zlatan’s release by allegedly hiring a Senior Advocate of Nigeria who helped in securing the bail of the singer.
The EFCC, however, said such report is not true.
