A suspected female fraudster, identified as Emmanuella Ezeegi, has confessed that she usually traps married men with sex, strip them naked and demand for ransom in order not to post their nude pictures or videos on the internet.
Emmanuella also revealed that the victims had no choice than to pay the ransom in order to save their marriages because their wives do not know that the victims were adulterous and were cheating on them.
The suspect was arrested alongside two of her male gang members namely Aspita Mercy and Jonathan Estreem, by Police operatives for taking video recordings of their victims and collecting ransom from them.
Emmanuella said that once she succeeds in luring a victim, she would invite him to a hotel, where the victim will be made to strip naked and the sex romp will be recorded.
Thereafter, the victim will be threatened to pay ransom otherwise they will post the video on the internet. She revealed that many of the victims had paid such ransom before she and her male gang members were apprehended by the Police.
This was confirmed by the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, CP Zubairu Muazu, who paraded the suspects at the Lagos Command for blackmail and fraud.
The Police boss said that the suspects, who were arrested on 17th September, 2019, prey on victims, especially married men, by taking video recording of them with the mischievous lady, Emmanuella and forcefully dispossessing them of their valuables in the process.
He said that their modum operandi was to lure married men for unsolicited dating through Emmanuella. While with the men, the lady will make phone calls to her gang members, who will then burst into the room, attack the victim and order both him and Emmanuella to remain naked for video recording.
CP Muazu stated that the victim will then be searched, dispossessed of all his valuables and forced to write an undertaking to pay ransom or the video clips will go viral on internet.
He said that the victims have confessed to have successfully carried out two operations before they were arrested.
