Zfancy, the prankster also known as Zion Ubani, exited police custody on July 10, 2024, after authorities arrested him a week prior.

Nearly three weeks later, hoax videos emerged accusing Zfancy of grave offences, leading to his arrest by the Nigerian Police Force (NPF )in Abuja’s Wuye area on July 3.


Released on bail on July 10 to the executives of Zfancy of the Practitioners of Content Creation, Skit-Making, and Influencers Guild of Nigeria (PCCSIGN).

Zfancy received a stern warning from the police against perpetrating pranks that could incite public unrest. The police clarified that they scripted the allegations against him
