Two years ago, the media was awash with stories on  the gruesome murder of 25-year-old Cynthia Osokogu, daughter of a retired general, inside a hotel room in Amuwo Odofin local government area of Lagos State by  friends she met on  the facebook   social network.

Today, some individuals still engage in using the social media  to commit  criminal activities. The latest  is the arrest of a 32-year-old graduate of   the Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, Anambra State,  Iweka Chigoziem Nnamdi, by policemen at Ajah  Division, Lagos.

Penultimate week, in Saturday Vanguard,  we published how the suspect, who allegedly posed as prominent Nigerians on the face book, used  the medium  to woo his unsuspecting victims, mostly  women, through the offers of job and business opportunities.

When people applied, he would  select only the females, married and single, and invite them to a hotel where the purported interview was scheduled. However  he would  identify himself as the agent or personal assistant to the prominent Nigerian that has the job and  demand for sex , with a promise to facilitate the application.

But unknown to the victims,  a hidden   camera  is  activated once the ceiling   fan is switched on, records all the fondling and sexual activities, at the end of which the   suspect  would  blackmail  them, with a threat   to post  their nude pictures and videos on the internet if his demand for money  was not met.

He  allegedly succeeded in blackmailing about 12  married women. The last straw  was said to be an encounter with a 27-year-old   female banker identified simply as Judith.

A close friend of the banker, who spoke  on  the condition of anonymity,  narrated the story: “ Judith is presently a  shadow of her former self  because of Nnamdi’s mischief. This is because she got information about  her sex video on the internet from close friends.

She met the suspect who posed as Mike Adenuga  on the internet and was convinced  because of Adenuga’s   photograph. They got chatting; at  a point, she accepted an invitation to meet him in an  hotel two months ago. But when she got there, she met Nnamdi   who   identified himself as Adenuga’s P.A and   told Judith that she   would have to go through him to see his boss.

One thing led to the other and she found herself in bed with him. But she got the shock of her life when Nnamdi called her on  phone to pay some money into his account, threatening to post  her  sex  video on the internet if she didn’t  cooperate.

Judith   called his bluff but was shocked when Nnamdi  made  good his threat by first posting photographs  on the internet .   Judith was yet to recover from the shock   when Nnamdi  went ahead to download  the video of them making love on her  facebook timeline. About 325 of Judith’s facebook friends watched the video.

“The video cost her, her five years relationship. After that, Nnamdi   kept calling and threatening to post  the second  sex video on the internet if Judith did not pay him.   It was at this point that she reported the case to policemen at Ajah who asked her to play along , in the process of which he was arrested”.

Laptops containing videos  and pictures of different women were said to have been recovered   by policemen during a search of the   suspect’s apartment in Ikota Villa  Estate, Ajah.

Police sources said about  12  victims contacted on phone revealed that they were married women, with some of them lamenting that the scandal  destroyed their marriages.

One of them(names withheld), who spoke with   operatives on phone   when asked to come and testify,was quoted to have said: “ I do not care if he has been arrested, killed or alive because   the harm has already been done. Can you imagine that scoundrel sent a video of  me and him on bed to my   husband? Today, I have been sent out of my matrimonial home. Of what use is my coming to testify? Will that restore my marriage?”

Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Ngozi Braide, who confirmed the suspect’s arrest, narrated:  “The case was reported to the police on April, 20, 2014. The complainant alleged that the suspect chatted with her on  the facebook for months until he invited her to hotel in Ajah, under the pretence that he was Mike Adenuga, the Chairman of Globacom.

When Nnamdi finally met with the victim on March, 14, 2014, he chatted with her and finally convinced the complainant to have sex with him. Unknown to her, the suspect had bugged the hotel room with camera. So while they were having sex, the entire action was being filmed.

“After this affair, the suspect started sending threatening text messages to her, demanding she pay various sums of money to him, otherwise he would send the nude pictures to her friends and colleagues at her office. He also sent a GTB bank account number into which she was to pay.

“After his arrest on April, 21, 2014, in an  hotel at Ajah and following interrogation, police recovered the suspect’s laptop in which he had  quite a number of sex pictures and videos of the complainant and also a host of other victims. He made a  confessional statement to the effect that he did all that police recovered  in his laptop, his BB and Techno phone.

On his laptop, police discovered that he had a list of prominent Nigerians such as Mike Adenuga;  Pius Ayim Pius; Nwabara  Adolphus; Van Vicker, a Ghanaian actor; and  Joy Nnwedu, among others. He had been using these images and names to defraud unsuspecting Nigerians. In fact, he has broken marriages as confirmed  by our investigations.”

The suspect, according to her, has been charged to court  on  an  eight-count charge, informing that the case comes up tomorrow ( May  26) at  Court 6,  Tinubu, Lagos State.

According to the police spokesperson, the suspect  was as  “cool as cucumber” after he was arrested, smiling like he had not committed any crime (Vanguard).
