Happie Boys in Trouble: How Former Security Men Turned Entertainers Landed in Cyprus Prison

Written by Keji Evelyn

Three former security men who became entertainers, popularly known as Happie Boys, have been arrested and remanded in prison in Cyprus, as reported by Igbere TV.

The trio, identified as Matthew Kelechi, Emmanuel Chukwuemeka and Samuel Chukwuebuka, were arraigned in court on Monday on undisclosed charges.

A source close to the boys revealed  that they were arrested by the police last week and have been in custody since then.

The source said that the boys have been denied access to their lawyers and family members, and their fate is uncertain.

The Happie Boys made headlines earlier this year after they called out a clergyman, Apostle Chibuzor Chinyere, who sponsored their education in Cyprus.

The boys, who were sacked by a fast food restaurant in Nigeria for dancing on duty, were offered scholarships by the founder of Omega Power Ministries to study in Cyprus.

However, the boys claimed that the clergyman abandoned them in Cyprus and failed to pay their tuition fees and living expenses.

They also rejected his offer to pay for their return flights to Nigeria so they could attend any university in Nigeria or Benin Republic.

They made several videos on social media, mocking the clergyman and his ministry, and accusing him of using them for publicity.

They also ventured into entertainment, releasing songs and videos online.

The boys have not posted any update on their social media accounts since their arrest.
