Ex-Big Brother Africa Star, Tayo Faniran, has been granted bail and released from police custody after appearing in court today.

This follows an altercation he had with the South African Police on Thursday after he was allegedly stopped for a search.

The 33-year-old who captured the encounter live via Instagram, insisted that he would not ride in the police vehicle to the station, after he allegedly denied them access to search his phone.

The situation later escalated when more officers arrived at the scene and forcefully took him away and detained him.

Channels Television was at the Samdton Police Station to get more details on the incident.

Meanwhile, in a recent development, the former BBA Star has shared a video on Instagram, telling his fans and loved ones that he has been released and he is alive and well.

He, however, lamented about his experience while he was detained saying he was seriously beaten up and that his body felt sore.
