The Oyo state police command has summoned Abdullahi Maruf, the comedian better known as Trinity Guy, over a controversial child prank video.
Olumuyiwa Adejobi, the police spokesperson, earlier called for the arrest of the skit maker who asked a young girl “inappropriate questions” about his manhood in a now-viral video.
Adejobi had condemned the prank, which he described as “child abuse”, and assured that the police would promptly take action.
In a statement on Thursday, the Oyo police said the comedian had already been invited to the command over the “disturbing skit”.
The command also promised to update the public on the matter in due course.
“Popular content creator, Abdullahi Maruf Adisa AKA Trinity has been contacted and invited at the Oyo State Police Command in connection with the disturbing viral skit content making the rounds across the Social Media space concerning a Female Minor. Updates would be provided soon,” the statement reads.

TRINITY GUY REACTS
Reacting to the development via his Instagram page, Trinity Guy expressed gratitude to his fans and colleagues who have shown concern amid the “misconceptions surrounding his work and personality”.
He also thanked Adejobi for playing a fatherly role in guiding and mentoring him.
“I would like to take this opportunity to express my appreciation to everyone who has called and shown concern regarding the misunderstandings about my work and my character,” he said.
“I would also like to extend my gratitude to my fans worldwide, my colleagues, and especially the Nigerian police, particularly Mr. Adejobi Olumuyiwa, for his fatherly role in bringing my attention to areas where I needed improvement and amendment.
“Your commitment to safeguarding the nation is truly inspiring and deeply appreciated. Thank you very much, sir, and may God bless you.”
