Moses Momoh, is cooling his heels in a police cell after allegedly threatening to circulate the nude photos of a 60-year-old retiree, identified only as Pat. The secondary school leaver had struck a relationship with Pat on Facebook after sending her a friendship request.
The duo conversed frequently on Whatsapp, where they engaged in virtual romance and sex which Momoh was recording and saving.
It was gathered that Momoh later demanded money from Pat, which the latter refused to give him.
He was alleged to have threatened to post her nude photos on the Internet if she didn’t give him the sum of N1m. The Benin-based sexagenarian was said to have reported the case at the Zone 2 Police Command, Onikan, Lagos State.
A police source said,
“In the course of investigation, we discovered that the man lied about his age; he told the woman he was 47 years old. When the woman saw his profile pictures, she queried him. He replied the woman that pictures could be deceptive.
The woman told him she was 60 years old and since the age difference was insignificant, they started a relationship.” Pat later tricked him to a hotel in Lagos. Some policemen positioned themselves at the hotel.
“When he entered the hotel room, he asked her to go and shower. He also undressed. The woman, after bathing, asked him to get her a drink. He had stepped out when she quickly alerted the police to his presence in the room. He was then arrested,” the source added.
However, the Kogi State indigene, who lived with his parents in the Alagbado, Lagos, said he had about 20 pictures of Pat’s private parts, adding that she had only given him N5,000 since they started the relationship.
