The reality star took to his Twitter page on 9th November 2021, to narrate how he was arrested by the police in South Africa because there was a curfew.

According to the Anambra State-born, it was his first time visiting the city, and he was having no idea that there was a curfew at the location where the police stopped him. However, he was released after police took him to their station to identify himself.

Why Cross was arrested and was taken to the police station was to know why he disobeyed the curfew order, which simply states the time when people must stay indoors at a certain location.
