Rapid Response Squad (RRS) members have arrested a 19-year-old Olufowoke Oladunjiye Emmanuel, a National Diploma holder of Yaba College of Technology, Lagos for blackmailing veteran singer, Queen Salawa Abeni with her nude pictures.
The suspect recently revealed that he picked up a memory card containing the nude photos of the Waka Queen on the floor in YABATECH in November 2019.
According to him, he decided to contact her for the blackmail when he got her number on the internet.
He added that he thought he would get away with it until he heard the news of the blackmail over the radio.
His words, “On 1st of April, 2020, I chatted her up and also called her after sending a 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 a nearby wetland in Magboro. Since then, I never mentioned it to anyone and called Madam Salawa Abeni about it again.”
