Police Alert Citizens On ‘Sextortion’ Via Dating Platforms, Urge Fun Seekers To Be Vigilant

The Nigeria Police Force has warned Nigerians against what it described as “sextortion”, cyber bullying, character defamation and blackmail that are now becoming a trend through relationships on online dating platforms.

The police gave the warning in a statement issued by the Force Public Relations Officer, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, saying that its operatives arrested a 26-year-old woman identified as Opara Joan Chizaram, who got connected with a man on dating app, in agreement, went to the man’s house and had consented affair with the man.

She then recorded him without consent during the intimate moment and discreetly captured images of his home surroundings which she eventually used to blackmail him for financial extorting.

According to the police, during the investigation, it was discovered that this was not an isolated incident, adding that the suspect had engaged in similar actions with other individuals she met through the dating app, revealing a disturbing pattern of behavior.

Adejobi stated that “In a digital age where connections and relationships are often forged through online platforms, we are increasingly aware of the importance of discretion and vigilance in our virtual interactions.

The recent case of sextortion, cyber bullying, character defamation, and blackmail serves as a stark reminder of the need for caution while navigating the world of online dating.

“The incident in question involves a complainant who, like many, sought companionship through a dating app. After months of communication, he agreed to meet a young lady who insisted on visiting his home. Their encounter resulted in consensual activities. Little did he know that his trust would be betrayed in a most invasive manner.

The individual he met, Opara Joan Chizaram, ‘f’ 26, recorded him without consent during an intimate moment and discreetly captured images of his home surroundings. These actions, conducted in secrecy, were intended to manipulate and exploit the complainant's trust.

“Subsequently, this individual demanded a significant sum of money from the complainant. When the request was not met, she resorted to an alarming and reprehensible act: she threatened to expose private and intimate content, including explicit images and videos of the complainant, with the intent to blackmail him.

Upon the complainant's courageous decision to report this heinous act to the NPF – National Cybercrime Centre (NCCC), investigators took swift action, leading to the arrest of the perpetrator. During the investigation, it was discovered that this was not an isolated incident.

The suspect had engaged in similar actions with other individuals she met through the dating app, revealing a disturbing pattern of behavior. The Nigeria Police Force condemns these acts of sextortion, cyberbullying, character defamation, and blackmail in the strongest terms.

“We wish to emphasise the importance of exercising discretion and vigilance while navigating online platforms, especially when personal and intimate information is involved. To protect yourself from potential threats, we offer the following guidelines: Maintain Privacy: Protect your personal information, including your home address, financial details, and intimate content.

“Do not share sensitive data with individuals you meet online until you are certain of their trustworthiness. Consent is Key: Always seek and respect explicit consent in any online or offline interactions, especially when it comes to intimate matters.”

How can you record someone during intimacy with the intention of extorting them?
The idiotic girl should be dealt with.
A man hooked you up, cured your konji, and stilll gave you money yet all your fish brain could come up with is to record and try to extort him. She should be made to face the law.

Have you seen what I was trying to explain to you people yesterday. That online marriages in Nigeria is non-existent, and online dating sites are for hook-ups, billings and sex.

Even the police knows this.

My solution
1. Only use professional hookups .
2. Have them leave phones at the door
3. Dim the lights

People need to know that SM is a double edged sword. Learn to control it or it will ruin and destroy you.

But if God wants to punish disobedient children, na so matter dey be.
