Against the backdrop of recent reports of leaked nudes or sex tapes of celebrities in the country, the Spokesperson of the Lagos State Police Command, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, has cautioned Nigerians against sharing their nudes with a second party.
Taking to his X handle (formerly Twitter) on Wednesday morning, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) of the Lagos State Police Command noted that if people must send their nudes, they should take certain precautionary measures in order not to be outsmarted and fall victims of blackmail or extortion.
The Police image maker said he has lost count of notable Nigerians approaching him about someone somewhere blackmailing and extorting them with their nudes, hence no one should be trusted.
SP Hundeyin wrote: “If you must send nudes, at least do one-view or cover your face or any other identification mark. And do not forget that video calls can be screen shot/recorded. For others, it is a clandestine recording of their intimate moments, of course without consent.
“I have honestly lost count of people, sometimes notable ones, approaching me about someone somewhere blackmailing and extorting them with their nudes.
“Trust no one. Take adequate precautions. Trust your instincts too. And do not forget to reach incb.npf.gov.ng in the unfortunate event you fall victim of this.”
