His dad KWAM 1, has revealed that he has been released on bail and awaiting a court date.
“Our attention has been drawn to the news circulating that Sultan, K1’s son was arrested alongside five other people in the US over Two million Dollars fraud.
“There is no doubt that he was among those that were arrested but what is however not true is that he is a fraudster. We can confidently say that he was not in anyway involved in the crime, which explains the reason why he was the only person that was released on bail.
“At present, Sultan is back at home waiting for the next date of the case where we believe he will be set free eventually,” KWAM 1 says assuredly in a statement exclusive to Pulse.
According to Instablog9ja, the Economic & Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) have commenced an investigation of other individuals connected to the matter on the home front.
Pulse reached out to a female representative of the anti-graft agency who insists on being anonymous. She was unable to confirm in a phone call if the EFCC is really investigating.
