King Zealot, a Nigerian actor, has reportedly been arrested as a member of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB)’s Eastern Security Network.
Zealot’s friend, identified as Preye Black-god Blakes who announced this on Facebook, noted that the actor graduated from Imo State University last year and is not a member of IPOB.
Sharing the actor’s photos on Facebook, he affirmed the former was paraded wrongly and demanded his release.
“Ok there are two pictures below, my case is for the young man wearing the singlet or armless top. From what I got, he was arrested alongside the other people and tagged esn members. This young man is King Zealot and he is an actor and a music artist, based in owerri. I got to know him through my good friend Donald Ihem’s and I can clearly say he is in no way a thief or ESN member. This is cheap blackmail. He graduated from imsu last year and we have been in touch. This isn’t a good thing to just arrest people and tag them what u like… Please give zealot an unconditional release… Please let’s share and save this happy soul.”
