The Delta State Police Command is investigating a case of a 19-year-old girl, Efe, who claimed to have been r@p3d by a university graduate, identified only as Kunle.
Efe alleged that after the rape, Kunle, 24, began to blackmail her, threatening to release her nvd3 photos if she refused to send him some money.
After the victim reportedly yielded to the threat two times, he allegedly demanded another payment of N10, 000.
When she refused, the suspect was said to have posted the nvd3 photos on the Internet, including her phone number.
The victim was said to have been called by some of her friends and family members who saw the pictures.
The incident happened in Amekpa, Ughelli area of Delta State.
She said, “I was going home that Friday when he stopped me on the road and said he wanted to be my boyfriend. I told him I was already in a relationship with someone else, and that I was not interested.
“He said he would not mind being a mere friend. We exchanged contacts and I left for my house.
“I always post pictures of my new cakes on Whatsapp and he saw one of them and said he liked it. He said he wanted me to make a cake for him. I agreed.
“He asked where I was and I said I was at my sister’s shop. He said we should meet at the junction because the cake he wanted was on his phone and he would want to show me what he wanted.”
She explained that when they met, the suspect claimed to have forgotten the phone at his parent’s home and asked her to follow him home.
She alleged that no sooner had they got to the house than Kunle locked the door and r@ped her.
“I blamed myself for my predicament and I decided to bear the shame in silence.
“However, on Monday, which was three days after the r@pe, he called me, saying if I refused to meet him, I would regret it because he had my nvd3 photos and he would post them on the Internet.
“I begged him and he said I should send him a N1,500 recharge card, which I did. Two days later, he demanded another N2, 000 recharge card, and I sent it.
“Later, he said I should send him N10,000. I was angry and dared him to do whatever he wanted to do.”
Efe, who finished secondary school last year, said she was surprised when she saw her nvde photos, with her phone number, on the Internet.
She said the incident had affected her psychologically.
It was learnt that the case was first reported at the Delta State Office of the Public Defender.
Kunle, however denied the allegation, saying he was in a relationship with Efe.
He said the photos were not circulated by him, adding that the 19-year-old originally sent the photos to him during their conversation on Whatsapp.
He said, “I am a graduate of a private university in the State and I know what I am doing. We met a few weeks ago and we started chatting on Whatsapp. I asked her to send me some of her pictures when she travelled to Ondo, and she said, ‘Is it my bre@sts?’, and I said yes.
“After that, I asked for the pictures of her pr1vte parts, and she sent them to me. I did a picsmix of the photos and jokingly sent it to her. I have since deleted the photos from my phone. The only regret I have was that I showed them to my friends.
“The first time she visited me, we didn’t do anything. It was the second time she came that we made love. I have all our chats as evidence that she sent those pictures to me.
“She came with her relatives to my house and damaged my laptop which I bought for over N90,000 and now, they are going to the press. I know my rights and if this is the way they want it, no problem.”
These are some of the pictures she sent to her alleged boyfriend, in the pictures she does not seem to be under duress.
