Police say Azodo was arrested after someone filed a robbery charge against him.

 “There was a case against him and we just invited him to make statement and we released him on bail because it is a ‘bailable’ offence,” a police commander, Abubakar Yahaya, was quoted as saying.

The police did not comment on what exactly Azodo did but reports say he got into a fight with a 30-year-old man he invited to his hotel room.
