A man identified as Chinedu Ezeudu, a native of Ndi Ikpa village Ezinato community in Awka South Local Government Area of Anambra State, has been apprehended by the police for allegedly selling nude pictures and videos of a woman on social media.
Ezeudu was accused of leaking the materials after attempts to get money from her through blackmail failed.
It was gathered that he sold the nude videos of the young woman to persons who requested it for N3,000.
The suspect was arrested by the police after the victim made a report to the office of the Commissioner for Women Affairs and Children’s Welfare, Mrs Ify Obinabo.
“When she refused to pay, the suspect threatened to post the video on all social media platforms but was confronted by the husband of the victim and asked to delete the video. Before then he had already duplicated it.”
She said the suspect went ahead to release the video on Facebook, Whatsapp and other social media platforms, including selling them to those who requested.
Ikeanyionwu said: “When the incident was reported to the office of the commissioner for women and social welfare Anambra State by the victim accompanied by Hon Ejike Okechukwu, the suspect was quickly arrested by the Anambra State Police Command.”
She said the suspect who is currently in police custody would be arraigned before the Children, Sexual and Gender Based Violence Court in Awka once investigation is concluded.
