“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.”
