Police arrest suspect blackmailing 18-year-old girl with her nude photos in Nasarawa.
Mohammed Zangina, a man from Kefii, Nasarawa State, has been arrested for allegedly blackmailing and extorting an 18-year-old girl.
Zangina, a married father of two, has been threatening the 18-year-old with n*de pictures, according to Gimba Kakanda – @gimbakakanda, a journalist who made this known on Twitter.
Before he was apprehended at the Divisional Police Headquarters in Keffi, the accused man was claimed to have requested s-x from the lady.
It was discovered the man had photos of other ladies on his phone.
Despite the fact that pictures and video of the man’s arrest in the police station were circulated, attempts to contact the Nasarawa Police Command at the time the report was made.
Kakanda, on the other hand, claimed that the man was apprehended with the assistance of police personnel who he described as “professional” in their work.
Kakanda posted, “Having serially blackmailed a girl under 18 and got her to send him money, Mohammed Zangina threatened to release her nudes in his possession unless she’s able to come to Keffi to have sex with him.
“When we got Mohammed Zangina’s number this morning, we found out his name was registered on Truecaller as ‘Namiji Mai Sharri.’ It’s Hausa for ‘the blackmailer.’ This alone alarmed us to note that Zangina is an expert in this business and must’ve preyed on many defenceless women.
“Zangina demonstrated impressive skills in evading sting operations. When the girl was asked to play along and go to Keffi from her faraway hometown as he demanded, he got her to keep on taking photos of her surroundings throughout her trip. I drove her to Keffi from Abuja.
When we got to Keffi, a friend of ours at the Police Headquarters in Abuja contacted the DPO of Keffi Division, and their support was overwhelming. They instructed their men to enact our sting operation, and so we allowed the girl to be bait. He was one fish hard to catch.
“At their rendezvous, he kept instructing the girl on the phone to make aimless moves while he studied the surroundings. The plain-clothed policemen acted as unsuspecting passers-by, with one even pretending to haggle price with a sugarcane seller. It was impressively professional.
“Finally, he took the bait and that’s the end of what promised to be a nightmare for that long-tortured minor. We caught him and had him bundled to the police station. He had nudes of so many women saved in his phone, which is now with the police. His problems have just begun.
“The blackmailer had had so many aphrodisiacs before he came to pick her up at the rendezvous and was ready for the promised “good time” when we caught him. He took various drugs in preparation for her visit…
“The blackmailer claimed he has a wife and two kids, and a certain “Wifey” kept calling his line while he was with the police, probably wondering why he had not returned home from whatever it is she thinks he does.”
