Singer Innocent Idibia, popularly known a 2face, has demanded for the release his colleague Ice Prince.

The 46-year-old lamented the arrest of his colleague in an Instagram post on Saturday.

He wrote: “@Nigerianpolice has it become a crime to be a young person in this country? Every protest and struggle is also for you to have better pay and equipment and proper retirement benefits. #FREEICEPRINCE.”

The police on Friday arraigned the ‘Oleku’ singer on three counts bordering on assault, obstruction and abduction of a policeman.

Ice Prince pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Magistrate Taiwo Oyaniyi granted him bail in the sum of N500,000. He was to also provide two sureties.

He will remain in Ikoyi prison till the perfection of his bail conditions, the magistrate ruled.

Ice Prince was arrested in the early hours of Friday, according to the Lagos State Police Command spokesperson, Benjamin Hundeyin.
