A number of celebrities and politicians have been calling for the release of the funnyman under the hashtag #FreeIdrisSultan.

The act angered Dar es Salaam Regional Commissioner Paul Makonda who ordered for his arrest.

Naona mipaka ya kazi yako huijuwi. Nenda sasa hivi kituo chochote Cha polic uwambie Makonda kaniambie nije utakuta ujumbe wako. @idrissultan,” read an order from RC Makonda.
