Davido has insinuated that Zlatan Ibile has been released from the custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission in an Instagram post.
Davido made the insinuation on Tuesday, May 14, 2019, in a post where he shared a photo of Zlatan with a caption saying, "Zankuuu Free! People love u sha! Oya go back to making History ❤️ @zlatan_ibile."
In the same vein, singer and policeman Yomi SARS says Zlatan is now free. In an Instagram post, Yomi SARS posted a picture of himself with Zlatan with the caption, "Welcome back son like have always told you be humble observers are worried."
On Monday, when PULSE reached out to the EFCC spokesman, Tony Orilade, he said Zlatan, Naira Marley, Rahman Jago and two others were still in their custody and are yet to be arraigned.
Orilade also said an official statement will be made available when the entertainers, who were alleged to have been involved in internet fraud, will be arraigned in a court.
The insinuation by Davido is yet to be confirmed as there are no official statements from Naira Marley or Zlatan Ibile. Their Instagram accounts have also not been updated since Friday, May 10, 2019.
Naira Marley, Zlatan, and three others were arrested by the police on Friday, May 10, 2019, in Lagos for their alleged involvement in Internet fraud. The musicians alongside three others were paraded by the anti-graft commission.
