Should I activate this ipad air?

I got this problematic ipad air. It had to be restored and updated via itunes. Afterwards, itunes shows its linked to an apple id which i have no access. the ipad air is now ready to be activated, i can go through the setups. However, I am afraid once I activate it, the lock will appear and it stays bricked forever.

Is this what they called icloud locked?

If the device is linked to an AppleID, then yes, it is "iCloud locked", or in apple-speak, Activation Locked. There is nothing you can do to remove iCloud locks, other than to contact the original owner of the device and have them remove it from their iCloud account.

Recently The owner claims he has removed the ipad air from the apple account. However itunes still has a activation lock when ipad is connected to pc. Does it take time to deactivate? or he didnt remove it at all? or the account/password need to be typed into my itunes on my pc?

I still havent gone through the setup on the ipad air.

It's immediate so if the device still shows as locked, then the original owner either didn't de-activate it properly or didn't do it at all.
