Opomo Bello Terry, a man who threatened to assassinate Nollywood actress, Regina Nwoko, has been arrested.
Terry, 24, who operates from Lagos, specialises in sending threat messages to unsuspected victims, demanding money from them.
The suspect, who recently got back from Ghana, was arrested for trying to defraud Ned Nwoko, the husband of Regina Daniels, by telling him that he was hired to assassinate the actress.

During interrogation, he told newsmen that, at first, he tried defrauding Nwoko of the sum of N700k, but along the line, he had a change of mind and started opening up himself, to the extent of telling him that he’s not actually an assassin, but a Yahoo boy who just needs financial assistance to drop the habit.
Nwoko, while playing along, requested for his account details and made a transfer of N400k to him.
But before then, he already alerted Access bank management and security operatives about Terry and he was arrested when he went to withdraw the money.
He said he learned from his experience with Nwoko that there is no shortcut to success. The 24-year-old man noted that he was staying in Ghana before he came to Nigeria. He asked Nwoko to forgive him.
