Inside Story of How Widow Lured Lagos Businessman Circulating Ex-Lovers Nude Into Police Net

 

 

 

Kennedy was arrested on Friday in the Oshodi area of the state after one of his victims, Kester, agreed to meet him under the pretext of resolving their disagreement.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The PUNCH correspondent had reported in a special feature on Sunday that two women, Kester and Temi, met Kennedy separately on different WhatsApp and Facebook chat groups for singles.

Kester, who lost her husband about eight years ago in a car crash, said the banker turned businessman, after chatting her up, started showering her with monetary gifts.

 

 

 

 

However, after a disagreement, he sent her over 50 of her n*de photos which he secretly took after their lovemaking in a hotel.

 

 

 

 

She said the Umunze, Anambra State indigene, demanded N100,000 from her as a condition to delete the photos.

 

 

 

 

The mother of two noted that after she sent the money and asked if the photos had been deleted, he demanded an additional N40,000 to delete them permanently, which she sent to him.

 

 

 

 

 

Despite the payments, the suspect went ahead to circulate the photos on Facebook.

Kester said she attempted suicide twice but failed, as some of those who saw the images started questioning her.

 

 

 

 

 

The second victim, Temi, said the suspect usually had marathon s&x with her in hotels while under the influence of drugs, and afterwards gave her N1,000 as transport fares.

 

 

 

 

 

She noted that after she discovered that he was not serious about the relationship and was merely using her, she stopped talking to him.

 

 

 

 

 

 

However, Kennedy sent her several of her n*de photos and demanded all the money he had spent on her in the relationship.

 

 

 

 

She said she borrowed N15,000, which she sent to him.

 

 

 

 

However, after she appealed to his sister on Facebook for help to talk to him, he started circulating the n*de photos.

 

 

 

 

 

Temi said the businessman regularly called her to demand money.

After the report was published, the suspect on Monday threatened to continue to damage the reputation of the women for “spoiling my image.”

 

 

 

 

 

He then started sending the n*de photos to their Facebook friends, family members, co-workers and church members.

 

Kennedy also sent the n*de photos to Kester’s in-laws, vowing that “by the time I am done, suicide will be her only option.”

 

 

 

 

After a series of reports on his continued criminal act, the suspect on Thursday accused this reporter of being “a tribal bigot and an idiot”.

 

 

 

 

 

He poured expletives on the journalist, querying why he was “bent on destroying” him.

 

 

 

 

 

That night, Kester informed The PUNCH reporter of a plan to lure Kennedy out of his hiding, saying she had agreed to resolve issues with him.

 

 

 

 

The peace meeting was mediated by a rights activist, Arike Adelodun.

On Friday morning, the day of the meeting, Adelodun called this reporter on the phone to say the suspect decried PUNCH’s continuous reports on the matter.

 

She said he wanted an assurance that the report would stop, as part of the conditions for the meeting, where he would delete all the n*des.

“I will call you back shortly and ask if you’re the one from PUNCH who has been writing the story. I will ask you to stop writing for the sake of Kester’s mental health. I will be very aggressive. Try to explain why you’re doing it, but I will shut you up. Just play along. He (Kennedy) will be added to the conference call. The purpose is for him to show up at the meeting,” she added.

After she called back, The PUNCH reporter agreed to stop reporting on the matter pending when he would get feedback from the women “by the end of today

 

The PUNCH correspondent was told that Kennedy did not send the meeting location until around 7am on Friday; he fixed the meeting for 9am at an eatery at Oshodi.

Around 12 noon, the suspect was arrested.

Kester, who spoke to Saturday PUNCH on the phone, said she felt like “someone who just won a visa to Canada.”

 

 

 

“I feel excited; this has traumatised me so much. My daughters will see the mummy they have always known,” she added with a laugh.

 

 

 

 

Recalling the arrest, she said, “My friend who mediated created a group for me and Kennedy. We had a video call yesterday (Thursday) where he said he still had the (n*de) pictures on his phones. He said we should meet somewhere so I could use my own hands to delete them. I agreed. We asked him to choose the location and time.
“However, when he saw your publication that day, he said I should reach an agreement with you to stop reporting. That was when you agreed to stop after everything had been settled.

 

 

 

 

He gave us the location and address. The police had, however, got there even before we arrived. They were hanging around. They took my pictures and we sent his pictures to them. Kennedy came to the bus stop to pick me and my friend. A policeman was already in the eatery. As we were about to enter the eatery, the police arrested him.

 

 

 

 

“He then started begging the police officer to shoot him and let him die. The man refused. I then told him that the death he wished me, he would beg for it and would not see it.”

 

 

 

She said she was looking forward to the arraignment of the suspect.

The founder of a rights group, Black Diamonds Support Foundation, Defunke Adewunmi, commended the state Commissioner of Police, Idowu Owohunwa, and the gender unit for providing support for the success of the sting operation.

“While I was talking to the victim and her friend whom we used to bait him, I was also speaking to the commander of the CP’s surveillance team. The suspect changed the venue three times before the surveillance team caught him.

 

I am glad for the arrest. I hope the victims can eventually get closure and justice would be served as quickly as possible,” she added.

Adewunmi’s organisation provided support for the women while the suspect circulated their n*des.

She had said nine widows and three single mothers claimed the suspect blackmailed them.

Reacting to the arrest, the second victim, Temi, said, “I can say this is the happiest day of my life. I’ll finally have peace of mind. I just feel like going out for fresh air and to enjoy myself. I feel really relieved.
“For over a year now, he has been a threat to my life. Every day, once I see his message, my heart starts pounding. These past few days when he saw that the matter was in the media, he started tormenting me again for having the courage to speak.
“He had told us that nobody can catch him. We have been to different places for help. It’s either they are demanding money from us or giving excuses as if it’s not possible. This guy told us he had an anti-tracker on his phone, and truthfully, they had been tracking him for a long time. But he kept escaping. I believe with his arrest, more women will come out.

 

She said the suspect’s action had damaged her business.

“I do online business and two of my customers no longer talk to me. I am in a Facebook group where single mothers get help. But he sent the n*des to one of the people there and they said if the group admin sees the n*de, I would be removed,” she added.

The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, confirmed the development after tweeting the suspect’s photo.

He noted that investigation was ongoing into the matter.

Sahara Weekly Reports That It may be tasky for Nigerians in the diaspora to be able to identify what a property entails if they have not been in Nigeria for a while. However, when property features and neighborhoods are highlighted in a property listing, it helps with making informed decisions.

 

 

 

 

Why nigerians in the diaspora should first look out for features of a property before investing by Dennis Isong 

 

 

 

 

Nigerians in the diaspora considering investing in property back home should prioritize assessing the features of a property thoroughly for several reasons:

1. Ensuring Value for Money:

The neighborhoods of the property’s location significantly influences its value. Proximity to essential amenities like schools, hospitals, markets, and transportation can enhance a property’s attractiveness and market value.

 

The dimensions of the property features, including the number of rooms, bathrooms, and overall layout, should match the buyer’s needs and justify the price.

 

 

Evaluating the condition of the property, including the quality of construction, age, and any need for repairs or renovations, helps ensure that the investment is sound and that there won’t be hidden costs post-purchase.

2. Maximizing Rental and Resale Potential:

Properties with modern amenities (e.g., reliable water supply, power backup, security systems) and features (e.g., parking spaces, green spaces) tend to attract higher rents and better resale values.

 

Understanding Lagos real estate market can help investors choose properties that are in demand, ensuring they can quickly find tenants or buyers.

3. Avoiding Scams and Fraud:

Cross-checking the advertised features with the actual property helps verify the legitimacy of the deal. Scammers often misrepresent properties to deceive buyers.

 

Ensuring the property has a clear title and all necessary documentation prevents legal disputes and confirms ownership.

4. Personal Satisfaction and Suitability:

For those planning to use the property personally, it’s crucial that the property aligns with their lifestyle and preferences. Features like the number of bedrooms, kitchen size, and backyard space can significantly impact living quality.

 

Features that allow for future expansion or modifications can be crucial for long-term satisfaction and adaptability.

5. Investment Stability and Appreciation:

Properties in economically stable and growing areas tend to appreciate more reliably, providing a secure investment.

 

Areas with ongoing or planned infrastructure developments (like new roads, public transport, or commercial hubs) often see a boost in property values over time.

HOW CAN YOU CONFIRM THE FEATURES AND NEIGHBORHOODS OF A PROPERTY LISTING IN ABSENTIA?

 

1. Ask the realtor to do a video.

 

2. Send a trusted person to confirm.

 

3. Do a video call for confirmation.

 

4. Ensure what was listed match with what’s shown in the video.

 

5. Check the map.

You Don’t Mean Well For Tinubu, Group Tells Wike, Allies For Disregarding Rivers Peace Accord

*You Don’t Mean Well For Tinubu, Group Tells Wike, Allies For Disregarding Rivers Peace Accord

 

Advertisment

 

The Oduduwa Solidarity Network (OSN) has slammed the FCT Minister, Nyesom Wike and his allies for undermining President Bola Tinubu by violating the Rivers State Peace Accord.

Advertisment

The group said the actions and utterances by Wike and his supporters are unacceptable and undermine the dignity of the office of the President.

In December 2023, Governor Siminalayi Fubara signed an agreement with his predecessor, Wike, to end the political crisis in Rivers state.

An eight-point peace deal was brokered by President Tinubu and other stakeholders at a crucial meeting in the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

But in a statement signed by Otunba Gbenga Aremu, the group said Wike has chosen to brazenly violate the terms of the agreement, perpetuating a culture of violence, intimidation, and division.

Aremu noted that Governor Fubara, meanwhile, has adhered to all aspects of the deal, including withdrawing all court cases.

“The Oduduwa Solidarity Network is utterly dismayed and disappointed by the flagrant disregard for the peace accord signed by Nyesom Wike and Governor Siminalayi Fubara of Rivers State. This accord, brokered by President Bola Tinubu and other stakeholders, aimed to bring an end to the political crisis in Rivers State and usher in a new era of peace and cooperation, “ Aremu said.

“Instead, Wike has chosen to brazenly violate the terms of the agreement, perpetuating a culture of violence, intimidation, and division. His actions are a clear affront to the authority of President Tinubu, a betrayal of the trust placed in him, and a slap in the face to the people of Rivers State who yearn for peace and progress.

“We condemn in the strongest terms Wike’s sustained attacks on Governor Fubara and his administration, particularly through the state assembly members. His public outbursts and inflammatory rhetoric have created an atmosphere of fear and uncertainty, undermining the progress made towards peace and stability in the state.

“Wike’s behavior is a stark reminder of the divisive and reckless politics that has held our country back for too long. His refusal to respect the authority of the President is a disservice to the people of Rivers State and Nigeria as a whole.

“Nigeria deserves better than the petty politics and divisive rhetoric that Wike has displayed. We must all strive to build a more united and prosperous nation for ourselves and future generations.

“Furthermore, we are appalled by Wike’s refusal to acknowledge the efforts made by Governor Fubara to implement the agreements, including the re-appointment of the nine pro-Wike commissioners who resigned their positions in the heat of the crisis and payment of the withheld entitlements of the lawmakers.

“We demand that Wike takes immediate responsibility for his actions and apologizes to Governor Fubara and the people of Rivers State within 24 hours. Failure to do so will leave us with no option but to mobilize nationwide protests calling for his removal as minister.

“We stand in solidarity with Governor Fubara and the people of Rivers State in their quest for peace and development. We will not stand idly by while Wike continues to undermine the progress made towards a more united and prosperous Rivers State.

“We call on President Tinubu and other stakeholders to take immediate action to address this situation and ensure that the peace accord is respected and implemented in full. The people of Rivers State deserve better, and we will not rest until peace and stability are restored.

“We also urge President Tinubu to continue to uphold the highest standards of leadership and to work towards uniting our country.”
