Though Maikori had apologised for misinforming the general public claiming he was misinformed by one of his staff, he was arrested by the police.

Maikori was reportedly released on Saturday, February 18, 2017 after top personalities that include Oby Ezekwesili and Femi Fani Kayode waded into the matter.

Confirming the Maikori's release, one of the music acts on Chocolate City, MI tweeted his appreciation to the support shown towards the music exec.
