Popular Nigerian actor, Yomi Fabiyi has taken to social media to drum support for skitmaker, Trinity Guy following his arrest by the police.
Ibadan-based skitmaker, Trinty Guy whose real name is Abdullahi Maruff Adisa is presently at the custody of Oyo State Police Command over his extreme prank.
Recently, Trinity Guy was arrested after his latest expensive prank where he is seen pretending to be killed by a gunshot, scaring unsuspecting passersby.
Also, the Police PRO also called for his arrest following his throwback prank video where he was seen asking a 10-year-old girl about the attributes of his manhood.
In a comment by Yomi Fabiyi, the actor said that Pranks are works of art and expression that are global adding that minors are used as warfighters in movies.
He added that the police should not listen to the internet users’ justification rather they should deal with the matter under the ambit of the law.
He further added that police should correct him with love and not trample on his rights by illegally detaining him.
In a lengthy post, Yomi Fabiyi wrote;
If we talk now, some will say I am supporting dangerous pranks or abuse on children. I will appeal to the Police to deal with this matter under the ambit of the law and not social media sentiment. I am of the opinion what the society want is CAUTION and re-direction of his style of pranks.
DO NOT INITIATE ANY “ERASE CULTURE” just because you want to correct. Film, Pranks are work of arts and expression. Minors are used as war fighters in movies but in real life it is criminal. If the necessary consent is taken before involving a minor with no direct or extreme methods that may lead to punishable acts as enshrined under the CHILD PROTECTION LAWS, safe to say we all including the police should CORRECT HIM WITH LOVE and not TRAMPLE ON HIS RIGHTS by illegally detaining him, initiate unfair trial etc. The Police cannot judge him, charging him to court is simple civil and dignifying procedure.
Do not see it as punishment or end to his career. PRANKS IS GLOBAL, moderation and counselling for better and healthy content is my own goal here. @adejobimuyiwa please the right charges and if none, POLICE CAUTION is lawful. Do not allow for total destruction of this guy’s life, career and means of livelihood. His intentions are clear. My humble submission.”
