Mr Iweka Nnamdi, a 32-year-old man, a graduate of Nnamdi Azikiwe University has been arrested by the Lagos Police command for allegedly blackmailing and extorting money from unsuspecting female victims.
Nnamdi used multiple Facebook profiles, where he impersonates notable persons in the society such as the Secretary to the State Government Senator Anyim Pius Anyim, House of Rep Speaker Aminu Tambuwal, Michael Adenuga, actor Van Vicker and a host of others, to deceive cheap women.
Here’s what Nnamdi do to ladies: “He met a female banker on facebook where he posed as one of the big shots in Nigeria. After chatting with her for sometime, he invited her to a hotel in Ajah on March 14, 2014, where he had her. Unknown to the female banker, a camp coder was placed in a corner of the hotel room, where all that transpired was recorded…
He later abandoned the lady while she was sleeping. Next day, the lady called him on the phone, saying she was no longer interested in the relationship. But Iweka would not agree. Rather, he sent her his GTB account details asking her to pay in some money which she refused.
But to her chagrin, Iweka posted her nudé picture on internet, on April 15, 2014, which prompted her to report the case to the Police. We used the lady as a bait to get him by asking her to call him on the phone and book for an appointment with him in a hotel at Ikota in order to settle the case. And when he came we apprehended him.
During investigation, we discovered he is not in any way related to any of these persons he claimed to represent. When we conducted a search in an apartment at Road 34, Ikota villa estate in Ajah, where he squats with his elder sister’s husband, we found the laptop he uses for these atrocities. Stored in, were video of several women in their nudé, including that of the banker. We also found black berry phones with same pictures stored in.
During interrogation, he said he only used such means to get beautiful ladies and also make some money. His victims included bankers, students in the different universities and married women. For the married women, he tells them to bid for contracts. From our account, he has destroyed about fourteen marriages, by posting pictures of the women who turned down his blackmail, on the internet,” a policeman from Area J in Ajah Lagos, explained.
Iweaka Nnamdi has been charged to court on an eight-count charge ranging from impersonation, publication of provocative pictures, threat to life, conduct likely to cause the breach of peace, obtaining under false pretence and threat with intent to extort.
Through the fake profiles, he would then demand for séx from ladies to give them big contracts, some of whom may be married. Unknown to the women, Nnamdi would have setup a camcoder where he would record all their bedroom activities.
Luck however ran out on him when he posted nudé pix of the female banker who refused to give him money.
The first hearing for his case came up on April 28 where he pleaded not guilty. He was granted bail of N200,000 with two sureties.The case continues on May 26th. Married women, singles learn from this.
