A National Diploma holder of the Yaba College of Technology, Lagos, arrested for blackmailing Waka Queen, Salawa Abeni, with her nude pictures, has revealed how he found them.
The 19-year-old said he found the nude pictures in a memory card on the school’s ground.
Oladunjoye Emmanuel Olufowoke, the suspect, who lives at Brentfield Avenue, Peace Estate, Marlboro, Ogunquit State, was arrested last Thursday by the decoy team of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS).
He said he picked the memory card sometime in November, 2019.
The 2017/2018 Electrical Engineering student was picked up after three days of monitoring him.
RRS said the Commissioner of Police Hakeem Odumosu had in the wake of the attempt by an unknown individual to blackmail Salawa Abeni sometime in April 2020, directed its Commander, DCP Olatunji Disu to fish out the suspect.
“On 1st of April, 2020, I chatted her up and also called her after sending few of the photos to her online.
“My intention was to negotiate with her for few bucks and for me to destroy the photographs.
“I thought everything was going on fine until the following day when I heard the news of the blackmail over the radio. I was with my mother. She was even cursing the blackmailer unknown to her that I was the brain behind it.
“I immediately sneaked out, destroyed the memory card and threw my mobile phone and SIM card into nearby wetland in Magboro. Since then, I never mentioned it to anyone and called Madam Salawa Abeni about it again, he reportedly wrote in a statement to the police.
